When you’re looking to paint your kitchen cabinets, it’s entirely possible that you are going to want to get the work done in a timely manner — and this is understandable given how long it can sometimes take to paint cabinets.
You should know that there are things that you can do that will make the painting project a bit faster without sacrificing any of the quality.
Let’s look at some timely kitchen cabinet painting tricks that will make for better kitchen cabinets.
One thing that will help you to get your cabinets painted in a more timely manner is to first apply a coat of primer before you apply the first coat of paint.
Though it will take you time to apply the primer to the cabinets, the time that you invest in applying primer will be well worth it as it will make the cabinet surface smoother and allow you to paint the cabinets more easily.
Moreover, you will also benefit from the fact that having a primer on the cabinets will keep the paint that you apply adhered to the surface for a longer period of time, meaning that it’ll be a lot longer until you have to paint again (unless of course, you decide you want a different color for your cabinets, that is)
Another important thing you’re going to want to do if you need to get the kitchen cabinets painted a bit more quickly is to make sure that you first remove both the doors and drawers of said cabinets.
Though this too is something that takes time up front, you ultimately benefit from it in a number of ways including the fact that it is a lot easier to access the rest of the cabinets if the doors and drawers are not there in the way.
Moreover, it is considerably faster to paint the doors and the drawers when they are separated from the rest of the cabinets.
While you have the doors and drawers removed, you should also look at removing the hardware from them — the time that you are going to spend trying to paint around the hardware is a lot more lengthy than if you simply remove said hardware and then reattach it once everything has dried.
If you want to make the most of your painting project time and get the most done in the least amount of time, you are going to be best off planning the painting project well before you start.
This will start with things like measuring the cabinets that are going to be painted so that you know both how much paint and primer you will need as well as how long it is going to take to do each of the steps of the painting.
In having a good idea of how much paint and primer you will need, it is going to be much simpler to make sure that you have enough of each and that you aren’t going to need to go to the store mid-painting to get more — that would be a tremendous waste of time.
As far as time goes, you will know how long each phase of the project is going to take and therefore you can make a full schedule for yourself including when you are going to stop to allow surfaces to dry — and therefore you will be able to make plans to do something else during that time.
Not having this information is likely to get you to spend a lot more time starting and stopping painting because you didn’t realize how long any given phase would take.
