Cabinet Refinishing is the process of changing the

Stain

of your current cabinet doors and bases to achieve the look of a brand new kitchen.

WHY REFINISH?

Homeowners choose refinishing because it is more affordable and convenient than replacing cabinets. At Ray of Light, Tempe and Phoenix cabinet refinishing is our specialty.

Choose cabinet refinishing when you:

  • Want the upgraded look and design of replacing
  • Want to avoid the extra expense and waste of replacing
  • Are happy with the layout and storage of your cabinets
  • Prefer the time savings of refinishing

Most Ray of Light refinishing work takes an average of ten days to complete, meaning less disruption and faster results. In fact, only three of these working days take place in your home; the other seven happen in our workshop.

FURNITURE FINISH DIFFERENCE

What separates Ray of Light in Phoenix from our competitors is our artistic focus and consistent furniture ­quality finish.

In an average or poor finishing job, you may see brush strokes, an uneven coating, a milky color, or in time, a yellowed look.

At Ray of Light, all our finishes are sprayed on, so you’ll never see brush strokes and your surfaces will have a completely even finish and a rich, furniture quality.

BEFORE & AFTER

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our jobs from start to finish:

  • We will take all of your drawer fronts and doors off, marking them accordingly, and then take them to our shop to strip, sand and stain. Any imperfections in the doors/drawer fronts will be taken care of at the shop.
  • When we stain the drawer front/door, we ask you to come to our shop to make sure we have the color just right, prior to spraying the final coat of lacquer. Should we need to make an adjustment, it can be done while you wait. Once a decision is made, we will then finish the balance of the doors/drawer fronts at our shop.
  • After we have completed the drawer front/door staining, we will then schedule a time to come back in to your home so that we can prep the area for completing the cabinet bases. This will probably take a full day as we are extremely careful to mask and tape/cover everything that will not be getting stained. We effectively make a bubble around the entire work area. (You will plan on eating out from this point until we finish the job.)
  • We will come back to your home; lightly strip and sand the areas that will be sprayed.
  • Finally, we will come back and install your doors/drawer fronts.
  • Collect final payment. Happy Customer!

The entire process, depending on the size of the job takes approximately 12-15 business days.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS

  • Our stains and lacquers come in a wide variety of colors, so you’re sure to find something you like. In fact, we always custom mix colors and acquire approval before proceeding.
  • If you’ve used and enjoyed a water­based paint color in your home, the cabinet refinishing Phoenix experts at Ray of Light can create a lacquer from the same color.
  • No paint? No problem. Show us your favorite swatch of fabric or a family heirloom and we’ll color match it. We also create custom stains. Read more at Stains and Lacquers.
  • We can replace your cabinet door and drawer fronts to create a new makeover.”

OIL BASED STAINS

We use only top ­quality oil­ based stains on your home’s interior wood surfaces. Choose from classic finishes like cherry, mahogany, espresso, walnut, and more.

Why Oil ­Based Stains?

When enhancing your home’s interior, we prefer to use only oil­based stains. Here are a few reasons why.

Oil­based stains:

  • Are more durable
  • Create a more even finish
  • Penetrate wood surfaces better
  • Give greater color depth and richness. Our craftsmen use a brand of stain that is widely respected in the finishing industry for its quality and durability
  • We know how important it is to have a consistent finish, so we use only products that will stand up to your need for excellence.

Our Process

All Ray of Light stains are mixed into a sealant for long­lasting durability. Our craftsmen then spray­apply stains to create a top quality, furniture­grade finish. Stains are always sprayed on, never brushed.

If you don’t see a color you like, we can custom mix stains to meet your specific design needs. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
