"Extremely impressed"

I used Walls by Design recently, and was extremely impressed with every aspect of the company. From scheduling the initial consultation to doing the final walk-through, they were helpful, professional, and seemed genuinely passionate about their work. Even though our project was small, I felt as though our home painting was just as important as a much larger and more expensive project. They arrived on time and took great care of my home. I would definitely use Walls by Design again, and have already recommended them to my friends and family.

Very pleased with the quality and attention to detail. The team, Brent, Matt and Chris, were very pleasant and treated my home and family with respect. The job, kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, railing and mantle, was done ahead of schedule. They always left my home spotless. Can't wait to hire them again.

Nick and his team at Walls by Design were great to work with and did a very professional job on the painting of my kitchen cabinets. I was so impressed by how organized the process was and how super dope my newly painted black cabinets looked. I would recommend WBD to anyone looking to get their painting project taken care of. Price was very fair for the quality of the work.

Matt Steele painted my cabinets for me and did an awesome job. He was on time, meticulous and the results are amazing. The company was wonderful to work with. They had a wonderful color consultant Marnie who helped pick a great color for me which was included in the quote. The preparation was thorough and all appointments for prep and the work happened when they said it would. I am very pleased!

I cannot say enough about the superb experience I just had with Walls by Design. The entire process was perfect! I love that they include a color consultant in the process, employ talented painters (rather, artists!) and are led by such thorough project managers. Our cabinets look fantastic -- can't wait to use Walls by Design for our bathroom remodel.

We have had such a great experience with Walls By Design. The process of getting an estimate, booking them, and project planning was made easy by their efficiency. Garvin painted our kitchen and bathroom cabinets and Kylie painted our banister and wall trim. They were both efficient, friendly, and kept our space clean. Both did an amazing job! Garvin is coming back in January for a second project -we requested him since he was so wonderful the first time! Highly recommend.

Could not have asked for a better experience and outcome. From the first call until the end of the project, we were beyond happy. Very professional, very quality work, and good people. What more can you ask for? Our painter extraordinaire, Kate, was amazing. She was personable, tidy, and extremely knowledgeable. Our cabinets are stunning, AND she finished a day early! You rock, Kate. A heartfelt thank you to the entire WBD team!

Setting up the project was a breeze
Read More
We had Walls By Design help us with a few different projects. We asked them to paint our cabinets, repair our cooking island, retile our backsplash, and paint our railings/banisters. From the quoting process to the final walkthrough, they are professional and friendly throughout the projects. Matthew did all the cabinet and railing painting and everything is immaculate - it is true artistry. Tim handled transforming our kitchen island from a plain box to a high-end cooktop, and Mark tied it all together with his expert tile work. We couldn’t be happier. Setting up the project was a breeze after we got our quotes so quickly from Kristen. Heather called us to quarterback the whole process - arranging for our color consultation with Jaci and putting all the scheduling puzzle pieces together. We will definitely be using WBD for any future services we need.

It is commonly asked why white cabinets are a popular choice for painting. The answer is that white cabinets are classic, just like a little black dress. They may be trendy now, but throughout the years, white kitchen cabinets have been popular multiple times. Additionally, if the homeowner decides to change the color in the future, it is less expensive to do so after the initial painting. White kitchens are timeless and will likely remain in style for a while. Furthermore, many of the cabinets that are painted are oak, which is unlikely to ever become a popular trend again.

It is a reasonable question to consider the longevity of painted cabinets. When done correctly, a painted cabinet can last for an extended period. However, the issue is that many painters and homeowners are not aware of the correct method for painting cabinets. This is evident through observing failed cabinet paint jobs and speaking with other painters in professional settings. It is easy to take shortcuts and paint cabinets incorrectly, but it is worth the effort to research and execute the proper method. Our company offers a lifetime warranty and free touch-ups for as long as the customer lives in their home. To ensure the longevity of the paint job, the proper steps must be taken during the painting process.

The duration of the cabinet painting process varies depending on the method used. Typically, a painting contractor will either use the homeowner’s garage for the project or remove the doors and drawers for painting at their own shop. On average, a kitchen takes about two weeks to complete. However, at Walls by Design, our process is more efficient and the average kitchen takes about a week to finish. We utilize a mobile spray booth, which is a 20-foot trailer, and spray the doors and drawers on-site. This system allows for increased efficiency and a superior final product.

It is not necessary to apply a clear coat over the paint to protect the cabinets. If the right type of paint finish is chosen, the surface will be hard and resistant to yellowing. We were called to examine a set of cabinets that had yellowed shortly after they were painted by another company. The homeowner had selected a bright white color but the cabinets had turned into a dingy yellow. We offered to repaint them but it would have cost more than the original job. To avoid this issue, it is important to choose the right paint finish and apply it correctly the first time.

It depends on the method used by the painting contractor. Some companies may require tenting off the kitchen and covering everything with plastic, making it inaccessible for 3-4 days. If a lacquer is used, it is advisable to vacate the home for the same period. However, at Walls by Design, we allow our clients to continue using their kitchen during the process, with the exception of the time we spend prepping and painting. The doors and drawers will be removed for 4-5 days but the kitchen can still be used.

End panels with laminate on them can be painted, even though they are not made of real wood. We have successfully painted hundreds of kitchens without any reported failures. However, it is important to use the right type of primer, as using the wrong one may cause additional issues beyond just the end panels.

Proper surface preparation is crucial for ensuring the longevity of a cabinet painting project. It forms the foundation of a successful project. Many painting contractors fail in this aspect by either skipping steps or not knowing the correct methods. To ensure the best results, we did extensive research and developed a thorough preparation process when we started receiving requests for cabinet painting. Our process includes:

-Dismantle everything. We mark and take everything apart. I saw a kitchen once that was getting sprayed. They opened all the doors, taped off the hinges, and let the paint fly. As you can imagine, it was not a pretty site.

-Buff sand all surfaces. Not a heavy sand, just a light scuff to break down the finish a little.

-Wipe down all surfaces with a de-glosser. This is simply a very strong cleaning agent, and does two things for us: Gets rid of all the dust we created with sanding, and further etches into the finish. Paint does not like shiny surfaces. If it doesn’t have anything to hold onto, it will release. Most painters only like to wipe down with the de-glosser, and not sand, but we feel these are two very important steps done together that cannot be missed.

-Prime with a bonding primer. This is one of the biggest area of failure by most painting contractors. They simply do not understand what a bonding primer is compared to any other primer. We see Kilz used a lot, but typically not the Kilz bonding primer. We like a product called Stix. It is made by Benjamin Moore, and will literally stick to glass.

-Then, if we have an oak cabinet or a dark stained cabinet we use another primer called Fresh Start, also by Benjamin Moore. This helps seal the grain of the oak and/or block any stains. We apply a heave rolled coat onto the oak cabinets, then spray two more coats to get the best coverage.

Cabinet painting involves applying paint to the surface of the existing cabinets. This process typically involves cleaning and sanding the surface, applying a primer, and then applying one or more coats of paint. Cabinet painting is a great option for those looking to change the color of their cabinets without changing the existing design or layout.

Cabinet refinishing, on the other hand, involves sanding down the existing finish on the cabinets to bare wood and then applying a new finish. This process can include staining, glazing, or a combination of the two. Cabinet refinishing is a more extensive process that can change the color, texture, and overall look of the cabinets. This process is more suitable for cabinets that have a lot of wear and tear and need a complete makeover.

In conclusion, cabinet painting is a more cost-effective way to change the color of the cabinets, while cabinet refinishing is a more extensive process that can change the color, texture, and overall look of the cabinets.

It is possible to reduce the visibility of the grain on oak cabinets through the use of putties and fillers, but it can be costly. Many homeowners opt for painting their cabinets as it is a more cost-effective solution than replacing them. However, using fillers to smooth out the grain can cost as much as replacing the doors. It is important to consider the cost-effectiveness and practicality of the options available.
