It happens in every home. You move in, use the kitchen to death and before you know it it’s looking past its due by date. Your cabinets might be scratched, the paint might be flaking or the colour could be faded. They’re well used, which is completely normal. The question is, do you replace the lot or just get a kitchen respray?
A question of cost
We’ve done the sums and on average, our customers save £4450 with a kitchen respray. It’s always cheaper to respray than it is to replace!
To replace cupboard doors and drawers in a kitchen (the front facings), you’re looking at £60 to £200 per unit with a place like IKEA. A joiner might charge you the same to make them, but if you want them painting that’ll cost extra.
To respray cupboard doors and drawers in a kitchen (the front facings), halve the cost. £30 to £40 per unit is a typical price. But remember – some unit facings cost hundreds of pounds, so the price to respray can be far less than what you’re quoted to replace.
A question of colour
There’s a limit to the colours and designs available with new kitchen units. You might find a design you really like, but they won’t do it in the colour you want, or vice versa.
If you’re happy with the aesthetic design of your kitchen units, you can have them resprayed in literally any colour you want.
We offer pallet matching to any colour (for example, we recently pallet matched for a Farrow & Ball colour our client liked) or you can choose any one of our chart colours. We use the RAL colour chart system, which has 1,625 glorious colours. We also use the British Colour Standard, which has over 500 colours.
A question of appearance and finish
By now, you’re probably leaning towards a respray. But, you’ve probably got a question nagging away in your head about the finish. It’ll go something like this: will the resprayed units appear as though they were originally installed in that colour?
The good news is, the answer’s yes! At least, it is with us.
When we respray your kitchen units and any associated trim, we clean the surface, prep it and apply three coats of a purpose-made spray paint. Our meticulous process guarantees a factory finish – your units will look brand new.
So, there we have it – a kitchen respray will replicate the finish of a brand-new refit at half the cost. You’d be mad not to consider respraying over replacing.
