Looking for a new way to spruce up your cabinets? Today’s your lucky day if so, as we’re bringing you the best cabinet painting contractors in Edmonton!
We did our research and put together this list based on their services offered, craftsmanship quality, turnaround times, and what their customers have to say.
If you’re ready, let’s start by discussing the cost first. Afterward, we can go through our list of the top cabinet painting contractors in the city for your renovation needs.
How Much Do Cabinet Painting Contractors Cost in Edmonton?
Plenty of factors can influence the price of cabinet painting, but the most notable are the number of cabinets and the cost of paint. The average cost to paint kitchen cabinets generally starts at $3,000 and can reach up to $7,000.
If your contractor is charging you per cabinet or drawer, a typical fee would be between $85 to $120. However, most Canadian contractors will offer a lower price for multiple cabinets, so it makes sense to have them all painted in one go.
We’ve summarized the starting costs of the contractors on our list to give you a better idea of where starting prices will be. Take note that labor and cost of paint is not included in these fees.
|Spray-Net||$3,500 – $6,000|
|CertaPro Painters||$3,000 – $4,000|
|The Repaint Specialists||$3,000 – $3,500|
|iPaint Painting||$3,000 – $4,000|

DreamArt Painting is a relatively new company, only established in 2015, but is making its mark in the city. A homegrown, family-owned and operated business in Edmonton, their quality craftsmanship and professionalism have earned them a positive reputation as some of the best painting contractors in Edmonton.
With their prices starting at $4,000, several factors weigh in on the final price such as surface types, size and crown molding, among others.
They only use hybrid paints that have low VOC content and minimal odor, and that are durable and safe to use in a home.
The whole process of painting your kitchen cabinets will last on average from 3 to 6 business days with DreamArt Painting. We like this contractor because they begin a project by cleaning all the grime and grease, inspecting for imperfections, and fixing any loose joints.
A second inspection is performed to reexamine if the surface is clean and smooth – they’ll scuff-sand the surface to prepare it for the initial primer.
DreamArt Painting even uses dust extractors with HEPA filters to ensure a dust-free environment, and they’ll also vacuum and wipe down all surfaces in the job area.
With the use of HVLP sprayers, they can achieve that new factory-finish look using durable solvent-based paints that can withstand the abuse kitchen cabinets often receive.
Now, during the actual painting process, DreamArt recommends that you vacate during this time to ensure that you don’t inhale any particulates. Don’t worry, they will ventilate your home thoroughly to ensure that no odors are lingering after the project is done.
Take note that it can take up to a month for the paint to fully cure and set. While you might be able to use your kitchen before then, you’ll need to be extremely careful, as any damage caused by you will not be covered by their 3-year warranty.
Despite their high starting price, there are some perks. For instance, all of the remaining paint (if any) stays in your home so that you can apply any touch-ups yourself if needed.
Besides, they have a fairly quick turnaround time and high-quality finish. All of this is why DreamArt Painting is one of our top contractors for cabinet painting in Edmonton.
Amanda Lee Stepenko, a customer, not only was impressed with the finished project but also appreciated the thoughtful service of DreamArt Painting. She writes:
“Chris was great; professional, on time, and friendly. He completed repainting our kitchen cabinets in 3 days; turning our Kitchen into a dream from a magazine almost overnight! Also, he called after to make sure we thought the job was done perfect, and came back for any little touch ups that were needed. We couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out and the great job he did in our home.”
Jim & Lynne Wolford, on the other hand, had a larger project for DreamArt Painting. Needless to say, they were also impressed, as they share their story:
“It was always a pleasure to deal with Chris. He is always professional in his dealings with you. He painted our kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and laundry room cupboards, all our wainscotting, three railings and our kitchen table. He painted our entrance and most of the main floor including ten doors and five french doors. The quality of his work was excellent. I take pleasure in recommending him and his crew. You will be happy with any job he completes for you!!!”

Spray-Net is known for their expertise as exterior painting specialists because they use science to deliver solutions to homeowners. They do this by using customized paint pigments that reflect the sun’s UV rays, thereby slowing down fading and preventing damage.
Even if you’re not looking to paint the outside of your home, with that kind of performance, we’re inclined to believe that they can handle an interior project better than the rest.
For interior or cabinet work, they’ll also formulate a special coating just for your project in their paint lab. However, depending on the complexity of the project, getting the color right can take up to two weeks.
All in all, with Spray-Net, you could be looking at the actual painting to begin up to 3-4 weeks after you’ve already signed the contract. While balancing the resin-to-pigment ratio in a custom color is ideal, not everyone may want such an extravagant and long process.
However, take note that this time frame is only for custom color jobs – Spray-Net can actually finish painting your kitchen cabinets in a single day!
They do this by setting up a spray booth in your home with a controlled environment. They then use UV curing to dry up the paint quickly, which lets them reinstall your kitchen cabinets soon afterward.
They’ve even formulated a special polyurethane paint just for kitchen cabinets. Their water-based product is low in toxicity and adheres to the standards set by Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers’ Association (KMCA).
The paint is specially made for laminate, melamine, thermofoil, plastic, and wood kitchen cabinets with over 15 colors to choose from. These paints are eco-friendly, have low VOC, and are specifically created for each surface they work on.
Spray-Net backs up all of its services and paints with an impressive 15-year warranty, which is one of the longest in their field. With custom paints backed by research and high-quality craftsmanship, this painting contractor rightfully places on our list of the best cabinet painters in Edmonton.
Spray-Net is popular because of their attention to detail and how quickly they can actually paint kitchen cabinets while producing quality results. Sean Morrow, a customer, was thoroughly impressed:
“The team was so efficient and delivered top notch service. The experience was seamless and the paint quality is exceptional. It is so good, in fact, that you can’t really tell they were painted – they look like original cabinets and for a fraction of the cost.”
Janice Dwyer also had her kitchen cabinets painted and was surprised at how fast the process was. She shares:
“So happy with the results from Spray Net! Painted my cabinets and had everything back together in two days. Fast professional service and reasonable cost to make my cabinets look new. Wanted to do this for years and Mahbub and his team made it a dream come true . Thank you to all the team for your hard work and attention to detail. Will use this service again for sure!”

Established in 1992, CertaPro Painters is the largest painting contractor on the continent that specializes in residential painting. As a rather large company, they have over 350 locally owned and operated franchises that allow them to bring their services to almost every region of the country.
Their preparation process is what sets them apart. Aside from covering the floors and walls with protective plastic, the painting crew will also fill in holes or cracks to ensure a smooth surface.
They’ll also fix stains and sand uneven surfaces if necessary to ensure a clean coat.
With that much attention to detail, don’t be surprised that their cabinet work receives the same kind of meticulous work. Using an airless sprayer, they can paint a range of cabinet types such as wood, melamine, and laminate.
CertaPro Painters will only use Emerald Urethane from Sherwin Williams on your cabinets, which has a reputation for drying better and being more durable than most other paints during cleaning.
Note that they’ll also set up a spray booth on your property or inside your home for their work. A ventilation system will be installed on-site to diffuse the spray paint and any odors.
However, despite having a spray booth on-site, it will still generally take them around one week to finish painting an average-sized kitchen’s cabinets. During this time, you won’t have access to your kitchen.
Moreover, it can take several weeks for the paint to cure and you can’t wipe or wash down your kitchen for at least a month. Patience will definitely have to be a virtue here, but it will be worth it considering that the end result will be a durable finish.
If ever you want to keep your cabinets the same color, CertaPro Painters can match almost any color even with just a small paint chip or a wet sample. This is quite impressive and convenient, especially if you’re like us and can’t recall the actual color codes for your house (whoops!).
CertaPro’s cabinet painting will set you back about $3000-$4000, all-inclusive of labor and materials, including the paints. This makes them one of the most affordable options on our list and earns them a spot on it as some of the top cabinet painters in Edmonton.
It’s fitting that CertaPro Painters have the “pro” in their name, because their professionalism in accomplishing projects is what gained them a loyal following. Sarah Kucharski is one of those customers who was thoroughly impressed with their service, as she says:
“The team was exceptional, the value along with the great work is just amazing. We will have this company and team back for more projects and will refer them to anyone in need of painting services.”
Alison, another homeowner, echoes the sentiment as she shares:
“I was eager to make my new home awesome. The old paint was drab and dirty, and the colors definitely weren’t my style. Based on past experience I called on CertaPro Painters® to transform my living room, kitchen and hall with show-stopping colors.”

The Repaint Specialists Inc. is a family-owned and operated business, with humble beginnings as a single-man operation around the city. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, they have now become one of the go-to companies for painting in Edmonton.
They actually got their start in interior painting. Today, they have since expanded their services to include painting exteriors, deck, fences, and spray painting kitchen cabinets.
They only use “MILESI” products, a water-based lacquer paint that they believe puts the longest-lasting finish on cabinets, especially those made of wood.
They also prefer these paints because they have fewer harmful chemicals than others and put up a stronger defense against fading.
They practice the same techniques and processes used on brand-new factory cabinets to give your existing cabinets that store-bought look. Not only will the cabinets look the part, but The Repaint Specialists Inc. will also put a 4-year warranty on the finish!
Cabinet repainting can be completed in as little as four days without any demolition needed, although they will need to transport cabinets to their facility to paint. They’ll simply take out the fixtures and doors, give them a coat, let them dry, and re-attach the pieces afterward.
Basic color matching is already included in their services. However, for more complicated shades, they partner with a professional interior designer to assist you.
You’ll receive initial contact within a day, and after the job is done, you can even keep the custom color formula.
Another reason to like The Repaint Specialists Inc. is that you can receive a virtual quote and estimate using video conferencing. You can submit photos for the space you want to be painted via a web form and receive a no-obligation estimate within a day or two.
The Repaint Specialists Inc., is known for the quality of their craftsmanship and their finished product. Harry Sutton, one of their customers, praises a job well done by the painting contractor, as he shares:
“We love our new kitchen! What a transformation! The Repaint Specialists made our old, dated kitchen cabinets look brand new again, resulting in a brighter, cleaner looking kitchen. The whole process, from Randy’s initial visit through to the completion of the project, went smoothly. The Repaint Specialists are competent professionals who clearly take pride in their work and have our highest recommendation.”
Daniel Forshner, also did some renovation work, and adds his thoughts:
“The quality of the work was amazing. I would highly recommend this company to anyone doing home renovations. The work they did on the trim and railings around the home has made it look brand new. Great work for an affordable price.”

iPaint Painting has been in the painting business for over a decade, with its owner starting out in the industry at the ripe age of only 19 years old. Versed in all traditional techniques through experience, this locally owned and operated company is now one of the most sought-after painting contractors in Edmonton.
Aside from providing you with a free in-depth estimate, iPaint Painting is licensed, fully insured, and Workers Compensation Certified. Each job they take on will always have a designated foreman and painting manager to ensure that every part of the job is completed to standard.
If you want to coat your cabinets with a darker and more vibrant look, iPaint Painting can complete that task without stripping the old paint. On the other hand, if you want to give your cabinets a fresh look by glazing, removing the paint is required and non-negotiable.
Nevertheless, not only can they give old cabinets a modern look, but they can add an extra protective coating to them as well.
iPaint Painting offers a 2-Year warranty for their work, which includes repair of peeling, blistering or chipping paint if the fault is from their end.
However, back jobs will only be performed in the area that needs repair, and only if you already paid for the primary job order in full.
However, despite the warranty, you’ll still need to pay for any additional paints and materials used since only the labor fee is waived. While we’re not big fans of this policy, it does speak of how confident iPaint Painting is in the work they execute.
However, if you’re satisfied with the work they do painting your kitchen cabinets, iPaint Painting performs other contract work that you may find useful in the future. They also specialize in drywall cracks and detail work, and can properly repaint portions of walls to match existing textures and colors for a seamless finish.
iPaint Painting is known for their professionalism, quality finishes, and for leaving an immaculate jobsite. Jodi Healey, one of their customers, shares her story:
“Mourad and his team did an exceptional job painting my interior walls and kitchen cabinets. Everything was professional, time efficient, CLEAN and perfect! The quote was so fair especially for this quality of work. Joe was one of my favourite crew members. His attention to small details was amazing. Both Mourad and Joe went out of their way to make this experience great. I’ll be calling them again for future services. Highly highly recommended!”
Vicki Storey, another customer, also shares her opinion on iPaint Painting:
“We had iPaint paint all of our kitchen cupboards and some interior rooms. Mourad and his crew were friendly, professional and efficient. We were extremely pleased with the outcome on all the jobs. They are reasonably priced and everything came in on budget. I would definitely hire them again.”
