How Do I keep The Price Down on Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinet Painting?
We have two main reasons we paint kitchen cabinets. The first is to brighten the cabinets from the old stain look and the second is to update the kitchen cabinets without having to spend the money replacing them. If you are a part of either category, we can help you keep the cost down on your kitchen cabinet painting project. The easiest way to keep the cost down is to not replace your hardware. If you do want to replace your hardware, then the next best option is to make sure you replace with hardware that fits the same holes as the previous hardware. For example, if you have a single pull on a door, when you purchase new hardware get a single pull knob. We do not charge extra if we do not have to patch, sand and reinstall new hardware. The second way to get a discount on kitchen and bathroom cabinet painting project is to complete the project in our off season, which typically runs from December to Mid March. These will be our lowest prices of the year.
