You may have a number of cabinets in your den, and at a certain point you may want to do something to improve the look of them – and if your budget isn’t quite up to replacing them (or you would just rather not replace the cabinets for other reasons) it’s likely a good idea to do what you can to get them well painted.
Of course, if you approach the cabinet painting project well and have some good information on your side, you will have a better chance of getting the cabinets painted in a more reasonable amount of time and for less money.
One thing that people might not tell you about painting your den cabinets is the importance of removing the hardware before you start painting.
The reason that this can be so important is that you are going to have some issues with applying the paint to the cabinets if you don’t remove the hardware first.
Moreover, the removal of the hardware will make it so that you will be able to possibly get better hardware for them.
In painting your den cabinets, you should make an effort to fully clean them – and not only this, but you should think about how you could clean the area near where you are going to be painting as well.
To clean the cabinets of course is a fundamentally important thing – you don’t want to be painting cabinets that are covered with dust that has accumulated over time.
Once you take the time to clean the cabinets, you’re going to want to make sure that you allow your cabinets to fully dry before you move on to the next step in the painting project.
You have a number of colors available to you when you’re looking to paint your den cabinets, but you are better off making use of a color that is going to coordinate with some color or colors that are already in the room.
For example, you can think about the walls of the den and how the cabinets are going to look compared to them – are the colors going to match them precisely or are they perhaps going to just coordinate with the colors.
Then you will have to think about how the colors of the cabinet are going to look compared to what you have on the floor, whether it is some system of hardwood or perhaps carpets or rugs.
As mentioned before, once you clean the cabinets you are going to have to allow time to pass for the surfaces to dry.
However, this is not going to be the only time that you will need to allow time to pass and have this happen – after all, there are a number of times that you will have more moist cabinets such as after you have applied a coat of primer.
In all of these cases, you are going to need to allow time to pass in order for all of the surfaces of the cabinet to fully dry because by not doing so, you will likely cause some sort of painting issue that you will later have to correct, which will cause you to take a great amount of time in corrections and fixing.
The better thing to do is to ask yourself a fairly simple test – has the surface of the cabinets gotten moist at all in what you are doing?
If the answer to this test is yes, then you have to wait for the surfaces to dry.
