Kitchen Renovation and Cabinet Refinishing
A short time ago Franklin Painting LLC crews transformed this Glastonbury, CT kitchen in a dramatic fashion.
All the existing maple cabinets were reconditioned and refinished with a clear coating. The refrigerator and oven cabinetry work was finished to match the existing kitchen cabinets. A new island was installed with raised paneling on one side and architectural corner elements and another style of paneling on the other. This was finished along with the window framing area and the new architectural addition around the range hood in a complimentary treatment that just brought the whole kitchen together in a new way. Visitors (even family) can’t believe that the whole kitchen wasn’t remodeled. The kitchen renovations and kitchen refinishing was quite extensive, but still far less costly than a completely new kitchen. The job was also completed in far less time than a complete redo.
Many times homeowners are confused by the options available when it comes to kitchen cabinet refinishing. We are one of the few painting or refinishing contractors in the State of CT that use Lacquer paint rather than the “quick-fix” solutions like standard oil-based acrylics or latex coatings. We use this Catalyzed Lacquer because it is much more durable and long-lasting than other less costly methods. Since this resilient material is sprayed on your cabinets, the finish will be free from any brush marks or imperfections found with other techniques. The resulting professional finish will likely be longer lasting than the original finish when the cabinets were new!
These quick-drying solvent-based lacquers were actually developed in the 1920’s for use in the automotive finish industry. Today they are used primarily for wooden products, furniture, cabinets and musical instruments. This type of coating results in a hard finish that requires all spraying equipment to be cleaned right after use and maintained well because of the hardening nature of the paint. Many contractors just don’t want to be bothered with these advanced techniques and opt for solutions that do not last nearly as long. Like many things, the best looking and lasting choices do cost a few more dollars but in the long run are well worth the investment.
