What Can Change The Cost

  1. Size

The more expensive paints and stains are better choices. They tend to look better for longer than cheaper, lower quality ones. This means you’ll have to paint them less often (which, sadly, means we don’t get to see you as much).

Complexity here can mean many things. Hard layouts (tight, confined spaces) can make painting harder. If your cabinets are already painted or stained a different process is needed to paint them.

Complexity also deals with damages. Rotten wood, hidden water damage, peeling paint, and other damages need fixing first.
