How to paint kitchen cabinets

Give your kitchen cabinets a fresh new look with a simple coat of paint

  1. First, remove all knobs and handles, as well as the contents of your cabinets and drawers. Use masking tape to protect hinges and glass and put down dust sheets to protect other parts of the room as necessary.

  2. Wash the cabinets down with sugar soap or a strong detergent solution. This will remove grease and create a smooth surface. Remove soap residue with a damp cloth.

  3. When the cabinets are dry, sand with fine sandpaper (you can skip this step if you have melamine or high gloss surfaces). Fill imperfections with AKRILIKOS STOKOS OIKODOMON putty and sand again.

  4. Apply a coat of AQUACHROM PRIMER ECO. If you are repainting you don't need a primer. You might want to use a small roller on doors for a smooth finish.

  5. Apply two coats AQUACHROM ECO in the chosen colour. After the first coat is completely dry, sand with a fine sandpaper to ensure a smooth, professional finish. Remember to wipe off any dust with a damp cloth.

  6. When the second coat is completely dry, carefully remove the masking tape, put the knobs and handles back on, and admire your sparkling new cabinets.
