Beyond Kitchens: Unexpected Places for Cabinet Painting in Your Vaughan Home

Have you ever taken a step back to look at your home and thought, “You know what really needs a refresh…? The cabinets!” Most homeowners would instantly think about kitchen cabinet refinishing, but did you know cabinet painting can breathe new life into unexpected spaces too?

Cabinet Painting in Your Vaughan Home

From home offices with worn built-in storage to forgotten cabinets hiding in powder rooms or bathrooms—a fresh coat of paint can transform any cabinetry on a budget. In this post, I’ll share some creative cabinet painting projects beyond the usual suspects like kitchens to spark some inspiration for your Vaughan home.

Unconventional Spaces for Cabinet Painting and Refinishing

Here are three unconventional spaces in your home that could benefit from cabinet painting.

The Perfect Escape: Transforming Bathroom Cabinets

Most homeowners add a touch of life and pizazz to their bathrooms with wall art, decorative knick-knacks, and greenery. Why not improve the ambiance by making over your cabinetry?

As one of the busiest rooms in the house, the bathroom should offer a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Using the right colours and finishes for your bathroom cabinets can help create a more relaxing environment for those times when a 10-minute bath turns into an hour-long soak.

Work in Style: Elevating Your Home Office with Cabinet Painting

Elevate your home office experience by using new colours to boost your mood, productivity, and inspiration. Having a workspace that represents your creativity and personality can inject some much-needed energy into your day.

Remote office work can become monotonous with the same day-to-day interfacing with a computer and Zoom calls. This can lead to a decline in interest, focus, and an unorganized workspace. With a little refinishing, and a new colour, a home office can become a more positive environment to spend your home office day in.

Lights, Camera, Cabinets: Entertainment Space Painting

With more and more people spending time at home, now is the ideal time to spruce up the cabinets in your family room, rec room, or media room. There are no rules here. Choose colours and finishes that suit your overall personality, preferences, and lifestyle.

Match the vibe of your young children’s playroom with bright, whimsical colours or create the perfect at-home theatre experience with darker shades. High-energy game rooms can be taken to the next level with vibrant and expressive colours.

Choosing the Right Colours and Finishes for Your Cabinet Painting

When it comes to painting your home—cabinets included—it can be tough choosing the right colour and finish for the job. You’ll want to make sure it is done right the first time, so here are some points to consider:

  • The Room’s Purpose: Consider the purpose of the room where the cabinets are used. In kitchens, bathrooms, and other high-traffic areas, you will want to have colours that provide a light and airy feel to the room while choosing finishes that withstand frequent use.
  • Existing Décor: Enhance the theme of the room with a complementing colour. In games rooms and home offices, you may want to lean towards vibrant colours of red, green, or yellow to match the existing décor.
  • The Room’s Lighting: Professionals know that light hues and shades offer light reflection, which is why light colours work well in small rooms and offices that do not have an abundance of natural light. Dark colours are fine for most rooms as they offer depth combined with an overall feeling of coziness.
  • Personal Preferences: In the end, the colours and finishes you choose will be based on your personal preference. Use this opportunity to have your cabinets refinished with colour schemes that express your unique personality to inject life into drab spaces in your home.

Cost-Saving Tips for Cabinet Painting and Refinishing in Vaughan and the GTA

To extend the beauty and longevity of your cabinets, here are some maintenance and care tips.

  • Refinishing vs. Refacing vs. Replacing: Refinishing your cabinets is a lot more cost-effective than doing a total renovation/buying new cabinets. In fact, refinishing/painting your cabinets costs less than two-thirds of the cost of refacing (replacing the cabinet doors) and only a fraction of the cost of replacing the cabinets entirely.
  • Sanding and Priming: Sanding and priming your cabinets before painting them can extend the lifespan of the cabinets and improve the results. Sanding before and between coats of paint can prevent imperfections from showing and allows the primer and paint to adhere to the surface evenly. Priming also enhances the shine, allowing the paint to have a uniform finish.
  • Reuse Hardware: Save money by using the existing hardware once the cabinets are completed. Customizing handles and pull bars can increase the costs substantially.
  • Consult Professionals: To avoid costly cabinet painting mistakes, hire professional cabinet painting and refinishing experts. They have the knowledge and experience of what products, equipment, and techniques are needed for a successful project.
  • Proper Maintenance: Once the painting and refinishing are completed, make sure to care for the newly painted cabinets. Without proper care and attention, the cabinets may need to be repainted in a short time.
