How Much Does Painting Kitchen Cabinets Cost?

Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to improve the value of your home and enhance the overall aesthetic of your kitchen. Since your cabinets are usually the focal point of the space, freshening these up can dramatically alter the appearance of your kitchen with a single project.

But how much does it cost to paint kitchen cabinets?

Today we will break down the major factors in pricing kitchen cabinet jobs so that you can better understand where the price is coming from. Having this information allows you to have a more informed conversation with your contractor and establishes clear standards and expectations for the work to be done.

The actual size of the project (dimensions of the cabinets and the amount of doors) is arguably the largest factor in any kitchen cabinet project. Obviously, the more work there is to do the more that work will cost.

For all cabinet jobs at Heritage Painting, we take the doors to an offsite facility for spraying. We will spend two to three days on site painting the cabinets and finish the doors offsite. This minimizes the amount of time you are without your kitchen and allows us to work more efficiently without taking up space in your home.


The cost of the paint product is another significant factor in any cabinet painting project. We use Sherwin Williams Gallery Series for all of our kitchen cabinet projects. The Gallery Series is not a cheap product, but that’s how we deliver the best results for our clients.

Labor is the last major factor affecting the cost of kitchen cabinet projects. The average kitchen cabinet project can be completed in 3-5 days, which translates to roughly 120-150 man hours. The cost of labor goes up and down depending on what type of work needs to be done for the job.

For example, if you are installing new hardware but do not want to use the holes from the original hardware, there is an extra labor cost to fill those holes and install the new hardware.

Little things like this can add up and affect the overall price of the job.


The average kitchen cabinet project costs between $4200-$5800. This is the total cost for the size, product, and labor expenses for the project. Having a professional paint job like this has a lot of benefits, including a professional finish backed by best-in-class warranty.
