Cabinet Refinishing

Kitchen cabinets are a prominent part of any kitchen. The finishes of cabinets often illuminate a kitchen with their designs and styles. As is the case with all other things however, kitchen cabinets loose their luster over time. Other times homeowners simply grow weary of their kitchen designs and opt for a redesign. Being that kitchen cabinets are expensive both to purchase and have installed it behooves homeowners to consider a refresh of sorts. Instead of outright replacing their kitchen cabinets homeowners should give thought to having their cabinets refinished or repainted.

Repainted cabinets essentially restore and/or re-imagine the design of kitchen. A fresh coat of paint also help to protect the wood found in kitchen cabinets. Paint acts as a first line of defense no matter what it is applied to and will help stave off the negative impact of pets, mold, rot, heat, cold, and moisture. Perhaps best of all however, homeowners will save a great deal of money opting for repainting/refinishing instead of replacing their kitchen cabinets outright.


Paint your kitchen

Arana Craftsman Painters regularly works with both homeowners and their interior design teams when their kitchens are in need of some attention. With regards to kitchen cabinets we address all of the following.

New And Old – Regardless of their age, kitchen cabinets can be repainted. Our artisans breathe new life into old cabinets and can touch up or redesign new cabinets.

Stained Cabinets – It’s a common misconception that stained kitchen cabinets can not be painted. Nothing could be further from the truth however. Arana can sand down and paint over previously stained cabinets to great effect.

Custom Stains – Some homeowners don’t want new paint on their kitchen cabinets but rather opt for a new stained finish. Arana’s detailed approach allows its team to concoct custom designs and stains that meet the very specific and unique needs of its customers.

Hardware Replacement – It’s not uncommon for professional painters to discover degenerated hardware when they begin work on kitchen cabinets. Arana’s team of pros can replace this hardware quite quickly and very easily leaving customers with both beautiful and functional cabinets.


Making The Old New Again

Arana Craftsman Painters are not just professional painters, we are artists as well. As such, we approach every job with an attention to detail not found in other painting services. This method of operation also allows us to better assist our customers in envisioning the right colors, patterns, designs, and placements.

Our team of painters loves what they do and through paint they help homeowners make what has become old and stale, new and fresh once more. We work closely with our customers and their design teams every step of the way. From the initial consultation to the application of paint Arana keeps the lines of communication open with all parties involved with a project. This ensures both quality of work and customer satisfaction.

Our clients say

Laura Martin Bovard, Interior Designer, LMB Interiors

It’s hard not to stand on a rooftop and sing the praises of Catherine Baldi, principal of Arana Craftsman Painters. She’s sincere, authentic, professional, and kind. Their work is exquisite and clean. She and her staff always answer the phone, they fix anything on a job that ever goes wrong -- the need for which is rare because they are so good at what they do. She treats her employees like family; she brings people under her wing and grooms them and they stay with the company long-term. Over the years we have referred dozens of projects, interior and exterior paint and wallpaper jobs, and we look forward to referring dozens more.

Thank you for the absolutely terrific job from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier with the transformation you guys performed on the old – peeling paint. Everyone was friendly, professional & qualified, just like your references all said.
