Painting a Bay Area Kitchen

Painting any room in a typical home requires attention to detail, careful preparation, and skillful application. However, painting a kitchen pushes these three requirements to a totally different level! This kitchen that we painted in the Bay Area is a good example of the care and expertise we put into every kitchen painting job.

What Goes into Painting a Bay Area Kitchen?

Careful preparation is the first step. Any surface that is not being painted must be thoroughly protected. Any damaged surfaces need to be repaired so that flaws don't show through the new paint. Primer is often needed over patched drywall or bare wood, or even to hide a previous color. Then we are ready to paint!


Choosing colors isn't the end of your decision making process. There is also sheen to take into account. In this kitchen, for example, the homeowner chose to buck the trend of using flat paint on the ceiling. Instead, we applied a glossy coat. The cabinets also received a coat of high-sheen interior paint. One advantage of using glossy paint on kitchen cabinets is that it is durable and washable.


In a kitchen with many individual colors and contrasting edges like this one, we are especially careful to stage our project wisely. Any wobbly edges or untidy borders would be immediately obvious in this kitchen, so we were painstakingly careful to get each color block done tidily.

Once the painting is done, we always clean up thoroughly, leaving you with a beautiful, tidy, ready-to-use kitchen. For us, this part of the project is always fun, since we get to enjoy the full effect of the transformation, and watch the joy on the homeowners' faces!

— Kathleen A

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“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!”

He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

— Ken Morrison

“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!”

— Barbara

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“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.”

— Jeff M.
Danville, CA

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”
