 How Much Does Cabinet Painting Cost in Oakland, CA?

Interested in cabinet painting in the Bay Area? Here’s a closer look at the cost and process.

With a full kitchen remodel taking months to complete, and often costing into the six figures, it’s no wonder that cabinet painting is so popular here in the Bay Area. Professional painters that specialize in the process can create beautiful, lasting finishes in a fraction of the time, delivering a new look without the huge mess, expense, and hassle.

Here’s our quick checklist to see if painting is the right approach:

  • Do your cabinets meet your needs from a functional perspective?

  • Are your cabinets in solid condition overall?

  • Are they good quality, and worth investing in?

If you answered yes, this could be the perfect solution for your Bay Area kitchen.

What’s Involved In Painting Kitchen Cabinets?

1. Clear Estimate

An experienced MB Jessee Painting estimator will come to your home, review and measure your cabinets, and talk with you about your overall goals. You’ll then receive a detailed, clear estimate that outlines all of the steps involved, the products we use, job scope, and cost.

2. Careful Preparation

After you accept the proposal and the job is scheduled, we’ll perform extensive prep in your kitchen to protect surrounding surfaces and spaces. We’ll also remove all your cabinet doors, drawer faces, and hardware. This leaves only the cabinet boxes to be painted in your kitchen - all the other surfaces can be prepped, primed, and painted off-site.

3. Expert Cabinet Painting

This goes beyond just picking the right color. We know how to do it right, including surface repairs, sanding, priming, and painting with high-performance, proven products. This is where the value really shines and makes all the difference. Any painter can apply paint to cabinets, but few know how to do the process correctly to achieve beautiful, durable finishes.

4. Reassembly

After the painting is complete, we’ll reassemble your cabinets and perform any touch-ups, as needed. And no project is complete until you’ve performed a final inspection with us, ensuring that everything meets your expectations and our rigorous standards.

How Much Does Cabinet Painting Cost?

It all depends, as you can imagine, on the size of your kitchen and the number of cabinets that you need painted. But in general, you can expect an “average” cabinet painting project to cost between $5,000 and $10,000.

Customer Reviews

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job.
