Easy Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

eieihome spoke to Steeles Paint and Decorating Centre owner Claudio Grisolia, who says, “You’ve often heard that the best parties always end up in the kitchen!” We couldn’t agree more and both “realtors and designers concur that nothing can date your home like worn, tired or out-of-style kitchen cabinetry colours and treatments.”

With upcoming get-togethers and functions planned for the fast approaching fall season, it may be the perfect time to consider a quick kitchen cabinet makeover.

Here are a couple of considerations for easy upgrades to your kitchen:

The weekend makeover

If the thought of having a kitchen cabinet makeover in one weekend without sanding or using slow-drying oil paints, excites you, then Rustoleum’s Cabinet Transformations may be the perfect product for your kitchen upgrade. It is conveniently packaged in a kit containing everything you need for your kitchen home improvement D-I-Y project.

Full instructions are included by way of a step-by-step DVD that will guide you through the entire process and answer any questions. “We’ve seen many products recommended for painting cabinetry, but this one really stands out,” says Grisolia.

“The consumer friendly application and hands-on visual instructions are superb! You can choose to create a faux-grained look or just leave it plain,” he explains. “It looks great either way.” A wide range of designer colours are available at Steeles Paint and Decorating Centre, and their decorators are always available to help you with your design decisions.

The quick dry cabinet coat

For painting or repainting both kitchen and bath cabinets, Grisolia also recommends a product made by Insl-x Coatings, a division of Benjamin Moore Paints, called Cabinet Coat. It is a super-adherent, highly scrubbable water-borne coating that is both self-leveling and quick drying.

It’s available in a wide range of colours and its low sheen finish is designed to imitate the look of spray finished cabinets. If you have a particular colour in mind to complement fabric, countertop or another paint manufacturer, you can bring it in for perfect matching.
