Kitchen cupboard spraying has become more and more popular in recent years. Spraylords, a kitchen spraying company based in the East Midlands of the UK, offers professional kitchen spraying services to domestic customers.
There are many benefits to kitchen cupboard spraying rather than totally replacing the entire kitchen. In this guide, we will discuss how to professionally respray your kitchen cupboards and explain the process’s different stages.
The process can be broken down into various stages, preparation & cleaning, masking, ventilation, spraying and refitting.
If you are looking to achieve the highest possible quality and standard of your kitchen respray you should always seek out a professional kitchen spraying company (like Spraylords).
All kitchen cupboards must be cleaned with a degreaser before any kitchen cupboard spraying can take place. This is to ensure that there is no grease or dirt build-up on the cupboards which could affect the paint’s adhesion to the surface. Here at Spraylords, we use specialist cleaning fluids to ensure that kitchen cupboard doors and drawer fronts are thoroughly cleaned.
Masking up is an important step in kitchen cupboard spraying, it is important to make sure that all surfaces which are not being painted are protected from paint overspray. We use paper rolls of masking material to totally cover all the areas of your kitchen where the new colour isn’t required, we also utilise plastic/polythene sheeting as another method of masking.
Feature panels which cannot be removed such as those on larder units or end panels are sprayed in situ, and the areas around these features are fully masked off.
In order to achieve the highest possible finish, we remove all kitchen cupboard doors and hardware (handles & hinges). We then transport these doors and drawer fronts to our purpose-built spraying unit, ready to apply the paint in a dust-free, ventilated environment.
The kitchen cupboards are now ready for spraying, we start the process by applying a ‘grip coat’ or ‘undercoat’. This is an essential step as it provides the new paint with a surface to grip on to, it also helps to give an even coverage and colour when the topcoat is applied.
Once the grip coat has cured we begin applying the top coat, in a colour of your choice. The top coat is applied in multiple, thin layers, slowly building up the coverage of paint on the kitchen cupboard doors and drawers.
Once the kitchen cupboard spraying is complete, they are then left to fully dry on drying racks in our spraying unit, ready to be transported back to your property.
So there you have it, a quick breakdown of our kitchen cupboard spraying process, from correct preparation, masking, spraying and finally reinstallation.
