How to keep your cabinet paint pristine

Find out how you can preserve your kitchen cabinet’s new paint job.

Giving new life to your kitchen cabinets

Cabinets are one of the main focal points of a kitchen and they add a lot to your kitchen’s aesthetics. But like any other part of your home, they’re not invulnerable to the passage of time.

Over the years your cabinets are going to start showing some wear and tear, however, there is a simple way to fix this—kitchen cabinet painting. Giving your cabinets a fresh new paint job is a much cheaper and less time-consuming alternative to replacing them completely.

Unfortunately, a newly painted cabinet isn’t indestructible; the new cabinet paint job can start to show wear over time if you don’t take the right precautions to preserve it.

Types of cabinet paint damage

Here are the kinds of damages you could see on a painted kitchen cabinet.

Water damage

Water could seep into your cabinets and cause unsightly dark patches to appear, ruining the paint job.

Flaking paint

Too much exposure to moisture can make the paint on your cabinets peel off from the wood.

Fading

Years of being exposed to sunlight can cause the paint on your kitchen cabinets to fade and appear dull.

Scratches

Kitchens are almost always full of activity, and this could lead to your painted kitchen cabinets getting scratched.

How to keep your painted cabinets pristine

Install blinds

Direct sunlight can cause the paint on your cabinets to fade over time. Install blinds or curtains in your kitchen to block out intense sunlight.

Seal your cabinets

To make sure that your new paint job lasts a long time, cover your cabinets with a layer of sealant, such as polycrylic or nitrocellulose.

Clean them regularly

Dirt and grime can build up on your cabinets and cause blemishes on the paint; avoid this by cleaning the cabinets with clean water and dishwashing liquid.
