Kitchen cabinets delete - how and with what?

The unsightly kitchen with the color that you can no longer see: that can be fixed, even without buying a new kitchen. The best way to cut out kitchen cabinets and what you need and which lacquers are suitable is explained in the following instructions.

The necessary varnish layers

  • primer
  • coat of paint
  • ev. hardener layer, otherwise special lacquers, which already contain hardeners

Thorough cleaning

Before painting, the kitchen surface must be thoroughly cleaned. After the rough cleaning with the sharpest possible household cleaner, every surface should be treated again with cleaning compound.

Lacquer prone

Handles and hinges should be removed and the individual front elements placed in a horizontal position. Thus, the risk of a color runner during painting is the lowest.

For sanding: sanding pads

Sanding pads are a great way to sharpen textured surfaces cleanly. As an alternative, abrasive papers in fine grain size (120er) are possible. It must be reached every part of the surface, otherwise the paint does not adhere.

Paint the best with the paint roller

Paint rollers are best suited for painting, as a clean and streak-free paint job without brush marks is possible. Soft rolls can also be pressed well into the corners.
