“At CCFF, our refinishing process is unparalleled. We take the necessary steps to ensure a high quality, long-lasting, factory-smooth finish. There are no short-cuts with CCFF.”
– Jenna Hill, CCFF owner
Cabinet Refinishing is taking your existing doors, drawers and cabinet boxes and either staining or painting them depending upon cabinet material. Refinishing requires extensive prep work (cleaning, sanding, priming, sanding again, painting and protective topcoat) whether you want your cabinets painted or stained a darker color.
“The average full kitchen remodel in Atlanta costs $30,000. Let our team REFINISH your cabinets at a fraction of the cost.”

So you have finally decided it’s time to renovate your kitchen. You like the layout of your kitchen and the cabinets are in good shape overall. However, the cabinet cabinet color (whether painted, stained or laminate) is outdated and you are ready for a change. Or perhaps you are considering selling your home and want to make the kitchen more appealing to potential buyers without spending an exorbitant amount of money. Well then your decision is very easy: REFINISH!
“There are cabinet painting companies and there are cabinet refinishing companies. We want to help you discover the difference.”
– Jennifer Hill, owner CCFF
If you are considering updating your kitchen cabinets, there are many options available to you. Trying to determine what is the best option can be overwhelming. There are four basic options: Paint, Refinish, Reface or Replace. Today, we are going to talk about the difference between Refinishing and Painting.
Atlanta homeowners in the upscale West Midtown area were so excited to finally begin their kitchen renovation. They hired a contractor last June to install a new Island, new doors and drawers and rework the oven wall.
Six months later, the kitchen was still not even close to being finished. The homeowners went months without their kitchen in hopes that the contractor would do the right thing and finish the job correctly.
So you have decided to paint your cabinets but are nervous about the outcome? Rightfully, you should be.
This week I am focusing on what to expect during the process and some commonly asked questions we encounter from our clients.
Lately, we’ve been inundated with calls from clients who’ve had their cabinets painted by house painters and are unhappy with the finish. While these companies are often great with tackling basic interior walls and trim, they usually don’t have the experience with refinishing or painting cabinets. So I thought I’d talk about some key questions you should ask before hiring a company to paint your cabinets. With over 14 years in business, we’ve learned a few tricks to get the “smooth” finish that’s an absolute must!
Porcelain, ceramic, marble, patterns, textures…. with so many choices out there how do you choose the best tile for your space? As designers, we make it our job to keep up with the trends. A great place to start….a trip to the “Big Apple” of course!
This is by far one of the most frequently asked questions in our industry. The answer is “it depends.” It boils down to wear and tear.
We have some clients whose kitchen was remodeled over 10 years ago, and the cabinets look like they were installed last week. While we have seen other kitchens requiring touch-ups after just two years.
