When a homeowner is thinking about cabinet refinishing, one of the first things they want to know is “how much will it cost to paint my cabinets, Tom?” 

Well, of course, as with any home improvement project – that depends.

Average Cost of Cabinet Painting in Newton, MA

We paint kitchens and cabinets day in and day out, and for certain, all kitchens and homes are different. That said, our experience is that the average client will need to spend anywhere between $8,000 to $12,000 to achieve beautiful finishes and a durable job. That number can escalate depending on many factors – the size of the kitchen, the quality of the original cabinets, the layout of the room, and if multiple colors are involved.

Professional Cabinet Painting Setup

Most importantly, set-up and preparation play a factor in the price of the project. Be sure to have an understanding of how the painters are going to prepare your home to protect you from fumes and dust. It’s really important to have that separation set-up and in place before the job starts – otherwise, dust and fumes will permeate the whole house, and you won’t be pleased. An open layout requires more set-up and preparation time in order to isolate the paint area from the rest of the home. So, plan for that to add additional expense to the job. 

Quality of Cabinets & Type of Wood

There are many reasons a cabinet painting project may require more than the standard amount of time to prepare the cabinets before being painted. Is the wood grainy or not? Are the cabinets worn-out or gently-used? What was previously painted or stained on the cabinets? 

All of these things (and more) go into the cost of kitchen cabinet painting projects. For example, if the cabinets are dark and have deep grains throughout, they will require multiple rounds of sanding and applications of grain filler in order to create a factory-like finish. This is a corner that many amateur painters cut to keep their prices down, but ultimately it costs you in the longrun.

Cabinet Painting and Kitchen Upgrades

Often times when we’re in a home discussing a kitchen cabinet painting project with a client, we’re also considering the options of updating the backsplash or countertop to better match the new cabinet color. While that is not a requirement for a cabinet painting project to make a complete transformation, it is something to consider! Of course, a project of that size is going to cost more than the $8-12,000 we mentioned before.

While most people don’t like the answer “it depends,” in the case of cabinet painting (and most things home improvement) it truly does depend! If you’d like to see images of what to expect and how we set up to protect you, your home, your family and pets, throughout the repainting process, just ask one of our happy clients!

If you’re wondering about the average cost cabinet painting, you’re probably also wondering about how long it might take to paint your cabinets as well! We broke that down for you in another blog.
