What Happens on a Home Visit?

Are you tired of your old kitchen and considering a kitchen respray? Let Kitchen Doors & Worktops provide you with some home inspiration. We’ve identified some reasons why replacement kitchen doors could be the better option for your home!


Respraying kitchen cabinet doors can seem like an attractive option, offering you a new look kitchen at a reduced low cost. However, there are some downsides to respraying a kitchen.

Firstly, not all doors can be sprayed!

If your Solid wood cabinets or doors are warped, chipped or faulty, then painting them won’t solve the issue at hand. Which could leave you disappointed with the end results.

Kitchen resprays can also be time consuming. The process involves removing doors from hinges, cleaning off any old dirt or stains, sanding doors down, priming and lastly painting before reconnecting any doors back to their frame. For the untrained painter this can take many days and any mistakes such as finger print marks on paint, will be annoyingly visible. Likewise, if you’re painting cupboards without a spray gun, unwanted paintbrush stroke marks and paint runs are inevitable. Professional painters typically spray-paint doors because it produces an ultra-smooth finish. … Despite our enthusiasm, there are downsides to a painted finish. The paint isn’t as tough as a factory finish. So, if embarking down the kitchen respray process yourself seems demanding, you’ll need to set aside extra costs for a professional painter.

Finally, whether you hire someone or carry out a kitchen respray yourself, painted cupboards require ongoing maintenance.

Fluctuations in temperatures, pressure or humidity within the kitchen can affect how wood and paint ages. Which means your kitchen will need a new coat faster than you think.

Secondly If your wrapped doors haven’t a paintable vinyl on, the results you want won’t be achievable as the doors were no designed to be painted.
