  • The Home Depot Cabinet Refacing Service uses N-Hance Revolutionary Wood Renewal. It cleans the grime and old coatings from wood cabinetry to restore its natural luster.
  • The N-Hance refinishing process does not produce dust, mess or noxious fumes normally associated with traditional refinishing.

PAINTING, REPAINTING OR STAINING
Painting, repainting staining - Affordable Kitchen Cabinet Updates
  • Painting can extend the life of wood or laminate cabinetry. 
  • Latex paints are extremely durable, even on high-traffic surfaces. It’s best to buy the 100 precent acrylic formulation. 
  • Oil paint is harder to clean up, but many professionals like its super-smooth finish. 
  • Stripping, sanding and re-staining existing kitchen cabinetry enhances the beauty of natural wood. Staining is a more labor-intensive project than painting.
  • Always remove cabinet fronts when painting or staining to prevent a runny-looking finish. 
  • Get comfortable with your staining technique by practicing on the back of your cabinets before tackling the front. 
  • Follow the manufacturer’s directions on your chosen stain. Don’t skip steps or you’ll end up with smudges. 
  • Always finish with a protective polyurethane topcoat to make cabinets easier to clean and extend the life of the stain.
