Painting your kitchen cabinets is a cost -effective way to permanently change the appearance of them. Painting not only changes the colour of kitchen cabinets but also reduces or eliminates the appearance of surface scratches (deeper scratches can be filled in and then painted over too).
Trouble is, DIY painting is incredibly time-consuming and unless you’ve got a specialised electric spray-painting gun, you’ll be resigned to using a brush – and brushes just don’t offer the smooth, flawless finish you want.
If you want a factory finish, it’s time to call the experts (like us). We spray paint kitchen cabinets to a factory finish. With our work, your cupboard and appliance facings will appear as though they were originally installed in the new colour.
What’s a good kitchen cabinet painting cost?
Kitchen cabinet painting cost
For a kitchen cabinet painting cost, you should budget circa £30 to £60 per cabinet, depending on its size. A small kitchen might have ten cabinets, and for that project a good price would be £300 to £400. Add £30 per additional unit.
For large kitchens with 20 cabinets and a kitchen island, if you budget circa £650 to £850 you won’t be far off the price. And remember – the work is absolutely permanent. You won’t be able to tell the cabinets are painted, even though you know they are.
This is cheaper than cupboard replacement. If you have an IKEA kitchen, you’re looking at £60 to £220 per new cupboard facing (around £120 for a cupboard facing the size of a built-in dishwasher). If you have a Wickes kitchen, you’re looking at around the same. The cost of kitchen cabinet painting nearly always works out cheaper and ion fact up to 80% with no hassle or builders mess of replacing.
With the ability to change the look of your kitchen for less than half the price of replacement, painting your cabinets makes perfect sense. Save yourself money and enjoy the same thing. It’s a win-win situation.
