Cabinet Refinishing for Kitchen and Bathrooms


Kitchen & Bathrooms upgrades such as painting your cabinets are pretty much guaranteed to give you the greatest return on investment,” said Scott McGillivray, HGTV host and author of How To Add Value To Your Home.

Welcome to Vancouver’s best Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing Company since 1996. We offer sprayed solid lacquer finishes in any colour for any surface type, taking all the proper steps to ensure a high quality, long-lasting factory-smooth finish. Let us help you recycle your kitchen to look new again, while keeping kitchens out of the landfills!

The average cost to refinish fall into three categories depending on the size of your kitchen:

Small – $2000-$4000
Medium – $4000-$6000
Large – $6000-$8000+

Our process:

  1. All doors and drawers are removed by our team and taken back to our shop to be lightly sanded, cleaned and sprayed with a primer followed by 2 coats of durable lacquer finish.
  2. Old holes are filled at this time to accommodate new handles if you choose to change them.
  3. Everything we can not remove (side gables, edges, trim, baseboard, crown, wine racks, etc..) is painted onsite by hand with cabinet coat using a brush and roll method. We do not spray lacquer in your home as you will never get rid of the smell, so we keep it contained in our shop.
  4. Depending on the size of your kitchen it usually takes about 2 days on site 8am-4pm *depending on the lighting the sheen may vary slightly from onsite painting and doors.
  5. The doors and drawers are in our shop approximately 2 weeks and once are finished we come back to reinstall them.

Our innovated process creates custom lasting results at an affordable price with the added benefit of keeping unnecessary cabinetry out of our landfills and saving homeowners thousands of dollars.

No down time in your kitchen, no need to remove any items from inside cabinets as only the front trim and all outside gables are painted.

So what are you waiting for just send us 1 or 2 overall pictures of your kitchen space along with a total count of how many doors and drawers you have, no measurements are necessary and we’ll send you an online estimate.

We can then follow up with an in-home visit to finalize the colours and details. We look forward to seeing the transformation and saving you money.
