How much will they cost?

We get asked all the time about pricing and more times than not it is about kitchen cabinets.


Customers usually have gone out to find replacing the cabinets with new or faces is not cost effective.

Did you know you can paint your cabinets with a quality paint that is fully washable and as hard as new ones at half or more than half the cost?

Painting kitchen cabinets in the Lehigh Valley is not an easy process for the typical homeowner and not something as easy as it seems. Without the proper prep and procedures, you can end up with a mess and a project that will, in the end, cost more than it would take to hire a qualified and experienced contractor such as Amato Painting.

So let’s get down to the process and costs: In the sample above we first start with a wash using the correct cleaners to remove any surface contaminants BEFORE sanding or you will sand the grease and dirt into your cabinets jeopardizing your finish. After this, we will lightly scuff or de gloss the surface or both. Again we will wash the surface to remove any dust from sanding.

At this point we will use an oil based primer and sealer, should someone in the home have asthma or allergies we would typically use a different product. After priming we will lightly scuff the surface again and apply two coats using the correct top coats chosen for longevity, washability, and appearance.

The cabinet painting process is not one where steps can be skipped to save money to use less expensive products to achieve a lower cost. In the sample above the cost for us to paint those cabinets with us taking the doors to our shop to spray can range from $2000-$4000 depending on the prep work, a number of cabinets, details on the wood, an island or other details creating more prep and finish work. You can most certainly find cheaper pricing but quality does come with a price, if someone ruins your cabinets and they are not insured the cost you saved will be one that will cost you in the end.
