When you are looking to remodel your kitchen, it’s often better to repaint your kitchen cabinets rather than to replace them.
One of the first things that a person might consider when deciding to repaint their kitchen cabinets is the technique to use in painting them.
Some might consider using a traditional paintbrush for painting cabinets, and others would suggest a spray painter get the job done that much sooner.
There are pros and cons to each of them to consider before you go with one route or the other.
When you are spray painting your kitchen cabinets, the entire process can take only a few minutes for each coat of paint or primer.
When you compare the few minutes that spray paint takes to the much longer process that is involved in painting the cabinets with a paintbrush, it makes the spray painting process look nearly immediate.
The reason this is the case is that spray painting gets the paint out toward the cabinets at a tremendous speed.
Though the spray painting technique is indeed quite a lot faster, there is something to be said about the precision of the paintbrush.
With a slow and steady hand, the person painting the kitchen cabinets can guide the paintbrush along the exterior and interior, coating each part with primer and later with paint.
The cost of a spray painter is significantly greater than the price of a paintbrush, even taking into consideration that you will have to buy a few paintbrushes.
If you are only thinking that you will be painting your kitchen cabinets and then not have any more painting to do in your home for a long time, the spray painting solution may not be the best route for you.
When it comes to painting kitchen cabinets, there is plenty of more challenging to reach spots.
There are numerous tight spaces in cabinets that are much harder to paint with a paintbrush than with a spray painter.
When a child is in grade school, he or she is almost always going to spend some time in an art class during which there will be painting done with a brush.
This leads to knowledge about how to use a paintbrush on some level from an early age, as opposed to the paint sprayer, which is considerably more challenging to use and certainly not a thing that would be taught in grade school as paint brushing is.
There is also a lot more maintenance that goes into the use of a paint sprayer.
There are techniques that one needs to learn when one is using a paint sprayer, notably those of adequately mixing the paints that will go into the paint sprayer, understanding how to clean out the equipment, and being able to choose the appropriate spray painting nozzle for the painting job.
It’s ultimately up to your needs to determine which spray painting or painting with a paintbrush will be better for you.
If you have the budget and the time to learn the paint sprayer, it may be better for you — and who knows if you might be able to use it to help out a friend in need who also needs their cabinets spray painted!
