Metal kitchen cabinets are a thing of the past and while they don’t exactly represent elegance and timeless beauty, they are practical and useful and there is no real reason to replace them with more modern cabinets unless their appearance offends you somehow.
It is very likely, that your metal kitchen cabinets need to be refinished so you can live more happily with them. Plus, refinishing will save you roughly 80% on the cost of replacements. If you want the job done well and want it to look good long term, then you may consider calling in the pros who will give them a new lease on life, in practically any color you choose.
This is a process that uses magnetism to bring about a high quality finish that is beautifully smooth, and free of drips and flecks. The paint itself undergoes electrical manipulation, which means that the positively charged paint molecules are magnetically attracted to the negative charge of the metal kitchen cabinets’ surface molecules. The whole process, including preparation and cleanup usually takes less than a day from start to finish, as the paint dries in several hours.
Having your metal kitchen cabinets electrostatically painted provides a more durable result than liquid paint, and it is also an environmentally friendly method since no solvents will evaporate into the air and no paint will be sent down the drain.
Match your other Appliances
While you are at it, you can also have other appliances repainted in the same colors as you choose for your metal kitchen cabinets. The refrigerator, stove and dishwasher can then blend perfectly into their environment; even if the color you choose is white, your contractor can use the same shade of white for each application. An amazing array of finishes can be chosen, including antique, gloss or metallic.
Before painting, the surfaces of the metal kitchen cabinets have to be totally clean; that means free of oil, rust and general soiling. This can be done by sandblasting or with acid or chemical pre-treatments.
Do not despair if the kitchen in the house you want to buy is decked out in metal kitchen cabinets. Look past the dull surfaces and envisage them in high gloss colors that will make them perfectly at home in a New Millennium residence. They could actually be the making of the entire room!
