Kitchen cabinet painting is a great way to change the look of your kitchen without having to spend a lot of money on new kitchen cabinets — but did you know that there are ways to save even more money in the process?
There are numerous techniques that you, as the home renovator, can employ to save money and still get your kitchen cabinets looking divine.
When it comes to painting your kitchen cabinets, one of the biggest expenses comes in the form of the hardware that you need in the form of paintbrushes, rollers, trays, and even the hardware used to stir paint and the tarps used to protect your kitchen during the painting process.
If you have friends that have recently painted, you can turn to them to borrow the supplies they got — you can certainly return the reusable tools in the same condition you borrowed them or maybe even better.
If you don’t have friends that recently painted, you might look online for forums where people talk about ecological issues and sharing things to reduce the need for buying new things.
If you don’t use any paint calculator and just sort of eyeball it, you might be in for a nasty surprise when you finish painting your kitchen cabinets and realize that you have way too much paint.
Having that paint sitting around for years with nothing to do can be a good reminder that instead, you could use free online paint calculators to figure out how much paint you will need.
There are some paints out there that have the primer already built-in, so to speak — meaning that you don’t have to buy an additional bucket of primer.
By skipping the primer step, you can save some money in painting your kitchen cabinets.
When it comes to painting your kitchen cabinets, messes can be disastrous and costly.
Having to replace things that you accidentally ruined because of paint is something you want to avoid.
By making smart use of painter’s tape, tarp, and other protective measures, you can save money by not having to replace things that might get ruined.
As you are painting your kitchen cabinets, you might try to move as quickly as possible to try to, well, get the job over as quickly as possible.
Indeed, painting kitchen cabinets are not exactly what people write about when they describe what they hope and dream of doing.
Though it’s not nearly as lovely as sitting by a pool reading a book, it is far better to take your time and slowly paint your kitchen cabinets, so you don’t make any painting errors that then have to be gone over and corrected, or to get paint in places where it doesn’t belong.
Take your time painting your kitchen cabinets, and you will only benefit from it.
As exciting as it probably doesn’t sound to follow a paint company on social media, you can save a lot of money in the cost of your paint when you do so because social media is the first place where they are likely to make announcements about upcoming sales.
You can similarly follow the stores where the paint is sold to find out about give-away promotions for gift cards and even sometimes paint supplies so you can save even more money when painting your kitchen cabinets.
Though it might seem counter-intuitive to advise you to spend MORE money on paint, in the long run, it will save you money.
By using only high-quality paint, the frequency with which you will paint your kitchen cabinets will decrease, and you will ultimately save money.
