What Else Can Change The Cost?

Size is the biggest factor (*badum-tss). The more cabinets you have the more materials and time it’ll take.

The process can change the cost too. Some people paint kitchen cabinets without taking them down. Other people choose to. It may take more time and steps but taking them down is usually the best option.

The quality of paint definitely changes the cost to paint kitchen cabinets. Higher quality paint costs more but it’ll look better for longer. Cheaper paint is cheap for a reason.
