A fresh coat of paint and new colour has the ability to transform any room. Whether it’s a dated design seeking some modernity or some wear and tear that could use some TLC, paint is the most cost-effective way to upgrade your home. Take a look at two kitchen painting projects from homeowners in Calgary for under $5,000.
Claire was looking to update their kitchen cabinets from the original cherry oak style. As they began renovating and painting their home, they realized that the cherry oak was not complimenting the new renovations and was creating a dated look to the room. After reading reviews, they hired Custom Painting Solution for the job.
As you can see from the before and after pictures, Custom Painting Solution did an outstanding job. The kitchen no longer stands out with the cherry oak contrasting the grey tones. Rather, it flows as one, tying the whole room together. To help with the upgrade, you can also choose to update the cabinets fixtures, including the cabinet handles and drawer pulls to a more modern look if needed.
Kitchen cabinets can almost always be repainted, rather than replaced, depending on the condition of them, of course. Learn about if you should replace or reface your kitchen cabinets here. Rather than spending thousands of dollars on new cabinets and installation, quickly giving them a paint job can fix the problem. See more kitchen cabinet painting projects here.
Another homeowner from Calgary had recently renovated their kitchen as they were beginning to see some signs of wear and tear, especially on their kitchen island. This can be quite common, especially in heavily used areas such as around cabinet doors or your dishwasher, if placed in the island. These chips can’t really be prevented and just happen over time, but there’s no need to replace the cabinets as the majority of the time it is just damaged on the surface. If you do notice there are spits or leak marks, however, you should think about replacing them.
Can Do More Painting – Renovation & Design was hired to take on the job. It was determined fairly quickly that a simple paint job could have the island restored and looking brand new. This was great news for this homeowner, as they felt they just completed their dream reno, and didn’t want to go through it all again. After a quick paint job and a couple touch-ups, the island looked brand new!
Paint might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about ‘repairing’ something in your home. And while it definitely can’t repair anything, it can transform something that doesn’t necessarily need repairs. Kitchen cabinets are a great example of this, and as seen above, it’s proven to work. Rather than spending thousands of dollars on replacing dated or worn fixtures in your kitchen, consult with a pro about resurfacing or repainting. This can not only save your existing fixtures while saving you money, but it is a great way to upgrade the space on a budget!
