Refinishing Techniques and Material Choices

At New Finish, our approach to refinishing kitchen decorative panels is rooted in precision and sustainability, ensuring each project not only meets but exceeds both aesthetic and functional expectations. We recognize that the choice of materials and the refinishing techniques applied are pivotal in achieving a high-quality finish that endures the demanding kitchen environment.


Material Selection for Durability and Style


Choosing the right materials is crucial for the longevity and appearance of kitchen panels. Our selection includes a variety of options such as natural wood, high-quality laminates, and advanced composites. Each material is chosen for its ability to withstand common kitchen challenges like moisture, heat, and frequent cleaning. Wood offers a classic, warm look, while laminates and composites provide a more versatile range of finishes from matte to high gloss, mimicking everything from natural stone to solid colors.


Advanced Coating Technologies


The finishes we apply are selected not only for their aesthetic qualities but also for their protective characteristics. We use cutting-edge coatings that are designed to resist scratches, stains, and UV light, ensuring the panels maintain their color and sheen over time. These coatings include polyurethane, acrylic, and epoxy, which are known for their durability and ease of maintenance. Our environmentally friendly options also include low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) and water-based coatings, which minimize environmental impact without compromising performance.


Customized Refinishing Processes


Our refinishing process is tailored to the specific needs of each project. It typically starts with a thorough cleaning and sanding of the existing panels to create a smooth base for the new finish. We then apply primer and sealer to ensure the new coating adheres well and provides a uniform base. The final finish is meticulously applied in layers, each sanded lightly to ensure a flawless surface. For panels with intricate designs or textures, we use specialized techniques such as faux finishing or hand painting to enhance details and depth.


Innovations in Refinishing


Embracing innovation, New Finish continually explores new materials and methods to improve our refinishing services. This includes the integration of digital technology in the form of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining for precise cuts and patterns, as well as digital printing directly onto panels for custom graphics and designs. These technologies allow us to offer unique customization options that cater to the latest trends and personal styles of our clients.


Focus on Client Collaboration


Understanding that each kitchen is as unique as its owner, we place a strong emphasis on client collaboration throughout the refinishing process. From the initial consultation to the final touches, our team works closely with each client to ensure the vision for their kitchen is realized. This collaborative approach ensures that the refinishing process is transparent, personalized, and aligned with the client’s expectations and lifestyle needs.

Enhancing Longevity and Maintenance

At New Finish, we recognize that the longevity of kitchen decorative panels is essential not only for maintaining the aesthetics of your kitchen but also for ensuring sustained functionality and value. Our approach to enhancing the durability and ease of maintenance for these panels involves the meticulous application of advanced refinishing techniques and providing comprehensive care instructions tailored to each project.


Preserving Panel Integrity


To ensure that kitchen panels withstand the test of time and use, we focus on the application of durable materials and protective finishes. Our refinishing processes include the use of high-grade sealants and topcoats that are resistant to kitchen-specific stressors such as moisture, heat, and chemical exposure from cleaning agents. These coatings are designed to create a barrier that prevents wear and tear, such as chipping, staining, and fading, thus preserving the panel’s structural and visual integrity over an extended period.


Routine Maintenance Recommendations


We equip our clients with the knowledge necessary for the proper maintenance of their newly refinished kitchen panels. Regular cleaning is advised using non-abrasive cleaners and soft cloths to avoid scratching the surface. We recommend specific products that are effective yet gentle on the panels, ensuring that they do not degrade the finish or material. Additionally, immediate attention to spills and stains can prevent permanent damage, keeping the panels in pristine condition.


Custom Care Plans


Understanding that each type of material and finish may require different care strategies, New Finish provides customized care plans for each project. These plans are designed based on the materials used in the refinishing process and the typical usage patterns of the kitchen. Whether it’s natural wood that needs occasional oiling to maintain its luster or laminates that require periodic polishing to retain their shine, our care plans cover all necessary maintenance steps to extend the life of the panels.


Preventive Measures


We advise on preventive measures to protect the kitchen panels from potential damage. This includes the use of heat mats to safeguard against hot pots and pans, cutting boards to prevent scratches from knives, and avoiding harsh chemical cleaners that can strip away finishes. Implementing these simple yet effective habits can significantly contribute to the longevity of the panels.


Periodic Inspections and Touch-Ups


New Finish also recommends periodic inspections of the panels to identify any early signs of wear or damage. Our team is available to conduct these inspections and perform necessary touch-ups or refinishing, ensuring the panels remain in excellent condition. This proactive approach not only maintains the appearance of the panels but also helps avoid costly repairs or replacements in the future.
