When is it Time to Update the Paint on My Cabinets?

How do you know it is time to update your cabinets? From kitchen to bathroom to laundry room cabinets, you want them looking fresh. It might be time to evaluate your cabinets and update the paint. Luckily, the professional painters at East Valley Painters also specialize in making the paint on your cabinets shine again.

When it is time for a proper paint renovation of your cabinets?

– Older cabinets might still have vinyl, which was popular in the 1990s. The vinyl will start to peel, usually about 10 to 15 years after installation, as the adhesive starts to wear away. You will notice the vinyl coming up at the edges first. Hopefully, you will catch it before it gets too bad. When you notice this, it is the time to remove the vinyl and add a fresh coat of paint. Also, look for discolored vinyl as it turns yellow from sunlight and cooking.

– The overuse of cabinets is bound to happen, especially in the kitchen where cabinets are used the most. Sometimes cabinets lose their shine over time and often times cabinets will have chipped paint. This is a sign that it is time to refresh your cabinets paint.

– If your cabinets are not closing properly, it could be a sign of water damage, which is common, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. Most cabinets are made of wood and water damage can cause dark spots on the paint. Try to take care of it right away so mold doesn’t spread.

– Of course you want your kitchen to stand out as it is considered the center piece of many homes. If you have recently remodeled your kitchen and add stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and elegant fixtures like a new sink and faucet, then it might be time to also update your cabinets. Cabinets can often be overlooked when remodeling the kitchen. Try to connect the look of your cabinets with your new stylish kitchen.
