Why Choose Cabinet Refinishing and Painting 

Cabinet Refinishing After Photo

If you want to give your kitchen a facelift, new cabinets are a great way to do it. However, the cost and also the hassle of having new cabinets installed is prohibitive to most homeowners.

Instead, if your cabinets are structurally sound and just need some TLC, kitchen cabinet refinishing is a great solution! During the process, our experienced team removes all the doors and drawers, strips and sands any paint, varnish, or stain from them and also the cabinet fronts. This creates a clean, blank canvas we can work on.

Then, using the color or finish you choose from our wide selection of options, we carefully apply the paint or stain. The end result after cabinet painting or finishing is a kitchen that looks brand new in a fraction of the time and a fraction of the cost!  

In addition to cabinet refinishing in the kitchen, we can also provide this service in the bathroom, or anywhere in your home with built-in cabinetry you want to makeover!

Benefits of Cabinet Painting and Refinishing

If your cabinets are still in structurally sound condition, why tear them out? The benefits of refinishing for your Raleigh or Cary home include: 


Having new kitchen cabinets installed can run into the tens of thousands of dollars, and often includes extra fees, like demolition or disposal of the old cabinets. Kitchen or bathroom cabinet refinishing can save you up to 70 percent of the cost of new cabinets and provide the same refreshed look. 


Cabinet painting or refinishing is a much faster process than new cabinet installation, and it’s definitely less of a mess to your home! Cabinet installation requires demolition with plenty of dust, noise, and chaos, and it can take over a week.

Instead of living in a construction zone, refinishing your cabinets simply requires taking the doors and drawers off, stripping and sanding them, and applying a fresh finish. The work can be done in a few days, and there’s no demo, dust, or noise. 


Deciding to refinish your cabinets is a choice that is beneficial to both you and the environment. Cabinet refinishing takes what is already in your house and transforms it, instead of replacing it. After we are through, you’ll hardly be able to imagine why you ever thought about throwing the old ones away!


Cabinets are limited in the finishes and colors they come in from the manufacturer. With our wide variety of paints and finishes, you can get the exact look you want. Plus, when the doors and drawers are down, this is a great time to update the pulls and knobs. Pick out the ones you love, and we’ll attach them for you.

By refinishing your cabinets, you can show off that updated look and get a great selling price without a huge investment!
