Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who do you hire to paint cabinets?

A professional cabinet painter knows exactly what to do to give your cabinets long-lasting color and appeal. Other painters may also specialize in cabinet painting. You can find a highly rated, professional cabinet painter near you by searching online. Look at their online reviews and ratings from customers, as well as photos of recently painted cabinets that showcase the pro’s work.

What does it cost to have kitchen cabinets painted?

The average cost to have your kitchen cabinets painted by a professional ranges from $1,200 to $7,000. However, the layout of your cabinets can affect the complexity of the job and increase the cost. Your costs might also vary depending on how many kitchen cabinets need to be painted. And, some cabinet painters may charge extra if they have to remove the doors to paint them.

Contact a few cabinet painters in your area to get a better idea of how much it will cost to paint your kitchen cabinets. Also, read the cost guide for kitchen cabinet painting to learn more about how prices are determined.

Is it cheaper to paint or replace kitchen cabinets?

This depends on your project. Although painting kitchen cabinets is usually significantly cheaper than replacing them, it’s important to look at long-term costs vs. benefits. If your cabinets are damaged from water leaks, mold or warping and can no longer open or close properly, painting them is probably not the best option. You may spend less, but if you have to replace them in the next few years, you will wind up paying far more for having painted them.

What's the most durable paint for kitchen cabinets?

The most durable type of paint for kitchen cabinets is anything that’s smooth and easy to clean. It’s often recommended that you choose semi-gloss, gloss or satin finishes as opposed to matte finishes. Matte finishes have a non-uniform surface, which not only attracts dust and grease, but also makes it more vulnerable to damage during wipe downs. 

Don’t hesitate to ask a top-rated cabinet painter for their advice as you’re planning your project.

Reviews for Chicago cabinet painters
Elizabeth P.
We had Baeza Painting paint our kitchen cabinets and adjacent desk area cabinets. The finished product is remarkable making our 25-year old cabinets look like they were just installed. The painters were meticulous in their preparation, execution, and clean up. I had hopes of seeing a nice transition but the results were far better than I expected. I could not recommend Baeza Painters more highly for painting cabinets, or anything else. I felt that their quote was also reasonable after getting several others.

Big League painting was great for painting our kitchen cabinets. Patrick was very organized with getting the quote and invoicing. They were able to schedule our job right away. Ramiro, our painter, was outstanding. He was on time every day and finished the job a day and a half earlier than we thought! Our place was spotless when he was done. The kitchen looks great!

The Big League Painting team and specifically lead painter, Ramiro, knocked it out of the park on our kitchen cabinet painting project! Patrick is extremely easy to work with, responsive, and ensured a very smooth project. They showed up on time, every day as planned and finished the project right on time. Most importantly, the results were AMAZING as our kitchen felt completely transformed. Ramiro is a great guy and really knows what he's doing. Was very careful to set up a tight enclosure to ensure maintaining cleanliness throughout, but also cleaned up well when finished. Our cabinets look brand new and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Very highly recommend Patrick and Big League Paint, will certainly use again for my next painting project!
