Can You Paint High Gloss Kitchen Cupboards?

Yes, we specialise in kitchen spraying and we regularly spray over glossy kitchen cabinets. Gloss is a shiny finish which reflects a lot of light and this finish used to be very popular in kitchens. More recently, we’ve found that customers have been looking to paint over their high gloss kitchens. Due to being so reflective, the colour of gloss cabinets can appear inconsistent as other colours within the kitchen can be reflected onto them. Also, fingerprints, smudges and scratches can be more noticeable on gloss surfaces. Most of our customers therefore choose to have their glossy kitchens spray painted in our 30% satin sheen however we do also offer 10% matte and 70% low gloss sheens, with low gloss being less reflective than high gloss.

As you’ll see from our kitchen makeover photos above, we’ve transformed many gloss kitchens including:

  1. From one colour to the same colour in an alternative finish
  2. From bright colours, such as yellows, reds and greens
  3. From very dark gloss colours such as browns and blacks to lighter colours
  4. From light gloss colours such as whites and creams to darker colours
  5. Damaged gloss kitchens which needed a fix
  6. Two tone kitchens

So how do we cover over gloss? The key is preparation! Our team carry out thorough preparation prior to the spray, which includes scotching surfaces to remove the gloss, allowing our paint to adhere. Upon completion of the spray, we guarantee our customers that the coating will not fade, crack or peel for 10 years!
