 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 love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“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 walk through 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.”

— Joshua Jansen

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

— Craig
Alameda, CA

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”
