Spend any amount of time swiping through photos of remodeled kitchens on Pinterest or Houzz, and you might find yourself turning citrus green with envy—or royal blue, canary yellow or any of the other on-trend cabinet colors of the moment. Rare, however, is the homeowner willing to take the financial risk associated with purchasing custom cabinets in a trendy shade to install in a remodeled kitchen—at a cost that easily eclipses the $20,000 average for cabinets in, say, painted white.

But if your heart beats fast at the idea of taking a design risk and choosing turquoise to adorn your space, why not consider having your cabinets professionally painted, instead of throwing caution to the wind and buying new?

“The sky’s the limit when it comes to color options,” says John Neubert, owner of Neubert Painting. “We can create a custom color for your kitchen and it won’t cost a dime more than if you went with something mainstream like white.”

That means for thousands less than the cost of a remodel, you can take your kitchen from what it is now to an on-trend foodie’s paradise with just a phone call to John and his team.


“Just by having your cabinets refinished, you can change the entire look of your space for a fraction of the cost of a remodel—in less than a week,” John says. “Our team uses a systematic approach to achieve a hard-as-nails durable finish,” John stresses. “Our craftsmen take old wood cabinets and make them look like new. The quality of our finishes is amazing. I see these cabinet doors and drawers in our drying racks daily. I love to touch and feel the silky smooth finished product. They look and feel like new.” So how much does it cost to have Neubert Painting professionally refinish your existing cabinets? A budget-friendly $4,000-$6,000 John says. Plus, every job is protected by Neubert’s five-year, no-fault, no-excuses guarantee.

You have only one chance to do a cabinet refinish job right. A failed job that peels cannot be fixed. There are no second chances. Lack of proper planning, including priming and prep work that isn’t done properly, are also big culprits. “If not done properly, your kitchen cabinet refinishing job will be peeling in no time,” John says. “And the worst part is, it can’t always be fixed. One homeowner who called us in to fix the paint job of another contractor ended up having to buy all new cabinets because we couldn’t repair the damage that had been done. That’s how important it is to choose the right company.”

The Neubert paint team removes all doors and drawers and takes them back to the shop where they’re prepped with a Festool dustless system before painting. All knobs and pulls are removed and labeled so they can be reinstalled, but since you’re going with the trends you might opt to purchase new hardware to really amp up the designer feel of your space.

Cabinets are de-glossed with a strong cleaner and any oil or grease on them is removed. An oil-based bonding primer is used before your doors and drawers are finished with a hard-as-nails factory finish applied in two coats.

“We use lacquer coatings to paint kitchen cabinets,” John reveals. “This is the same type of coating that is used in cabinet manufacturing so it’s more durable and lasts longer. And because we spray our finish on, it produces a high quality result.”

John adds, “Our team of carpenters can add a backsplash and crown molding, and make kitchen modifications to accommodate new appliances.”
