When installing new cabinets or remodeling a kitchen you may wonder about what order you should do your projects in.The timeline of remodeling a kitchen can be tricky. Navigating all the different vendors may be a lot to take on but there is an ideal order of how things should be installed to ensure the best finished project.
Installing new cabinetry often requires new painting. Cabinet removal can damage the drywall and expose areas that are unpainted. One of the biggest questions is when should you paint when installing new cabinets. Some people think it is better to paint before and others think it is better to paint after.
Installing cabinets should be done after the painting. This allows the painter to do the cleanest job and relieves any concern about the paint getting on the brand new cabinets. Painting a cleared out space is easier to achieve flawless results. Painting prior to installing the cabinet also allows for any texture or drywall issues to be addressed. Most professional painters use a sprayer to paint a big room and it is not easy to completely cover and mask cabinets but touching up any nicks or scuffs on the paint is much easier.
After the cabinets are installed you will add counter tops, install back splash tile, install appliances and finish up the kitchen space. The installation of the cabinets is a huge process and really sets the stage for the rest of the project. After all of this you may need to touch up the paint and add some caulking. In the end, painting first yields the best results and will create the perfect canvas for your new cabinetry.
