Dining Room Cabinet Painting Tips And Techniques In St. Helens, OR

In any given painting project, you are going to benefit well from making use of certain techniques that improve upon how well the painting goes -- these can be things from how you prepare to paint to things you do during the painting process.

In getting ready to paint your dining room cabinets, for example, there are things you can do to help you make the painting process better.

Let's have a look at some tips and techniques for painting your dining room cabinet to make it that much better.

1. Use Good Brushes When Painting

One of the first things you're going to want to do when you're looking to paint your dining room cabinet is to make sure that the brushes that you use are of good quality.

Though of course, it may be a bit tempting when you are at a store if you see lower-end paint brushes to just get them and hope for the best, this is not a good idea and can ultimately lead to you having more poorly dining room cabinets.

For one, when you use lower-quality paint brushes, you will oftentimes have a more difficult time applying paint and primer to your cabinets.

Moreover, those poor-quality paint brushes are more likely to give you issues when it comes to keeping the brushes intact and in some cases, you might even find that bristles from the paintbrush will come off into the paint that you are applying to the cabinets, which is certainly not a good look for any cabinets, let alone a set of dining room cabinets.

2. Use Moderate Paced Brush Strokes

In applying paint to your cabinets (and even primer) it is a good idea to make use of moderately paced brush strokes.

It's of course understandable that you as a home painter would want to get your paintwork done as quickly as possible but this is just going to lead you to have a more messy painting project that could also take you longer to complete as well, due to how much time you are going to end up spending cleaning up after the mistakes that you can sometimes make in your haste.

Instead, make use of more moderately paced brush strokes and you will find that the paint will go on more smoothly and you will have fewer issues with making a mess.

3. Protect The Floor Near The Cabinets

You may well know that when you are painting your walls and even your ceiling, you would want to put down some drop cloth or tarp on the floor to catch the dripping paint that comes down during the painting process.

This also comes into effect when you are painting your cabinets, as there can be paint that will drip down from the surface of the cabinets (or primer, for that matter) while you are painting.

It's much better for a bit of paint to get on the tarp or drop cloth on the floor than for it to get on the floor itself, which is then a lot more difficult to clean.

Simply by making the time to put down some drop cloth before you start to paint, you will be ultimately saving quite a bit of time in not having to clean later on.

4. Choose A Good Cabinet Color

Lastly, you should bear in mind that before you start painting you need to have a good cabinet color picked out for you.

There are quite a few colors from which you can pick, but not all of them are necessarily going to be appropriate for use in a dining room -- but ultimately you are going to have to be the person living with the color selection that you make, and so what might work well for one person might hurt for another person to conceive.

Have a look around the room and see what colors are there and try to pick a color or colors that coordinate well with those colors.
