Painting a Bay Area Kitchen

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!

“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.”

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“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.”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”
