Is Kitchen Wrapping A Good Idea?

If you need to spruce up your kitchen, vinyl-wrapping from kitchen wraps Glasgow is one option. It involves sticking a protective plastic film on raw MDF cabinetry. This can be done in-home by yourself, saving you both time and money if you don’t need heavy renovations

For someone thinking about re-doing their kitchen, you should consider three factors:

  1. Your budget and the maximum amount you can spend on your kitchen.
  2. Make sure the kitchen will be much more beautiful after the renovation.
  3. They chose quality materials for the new kitchen and are confident that it will maintain its appearance for a long time.

Pricing

As the cheapest option, many people choose to wrap their kitchens. They might also go for a kitchen spray, although these are slightly pricier than vinyl wraps. Kitchen replacements are the most expensive but it’s important to consider that over time these pay for themselves and save you money in the long run. Although wrapped kitchens can get worn out faster than if you use other methods, what you save on initial costs might make it the best option for your business.

The Right Look

Vinyl’s one downside is the grade of finish. Spray painting usually leaves grain visible with a vinyl wrap as well. Wrapped items always have a smooth finish. You could also cover your item with vinyl wrapping using a wood vinyl effect, though there are more colour and pattern options too.

Vinyl wrapping, as well as paint spraying, are widely accessible. One benefit of spray painting your kitchen is that you can find any colour that suits your taste and have it fully coated.

Long Lasting

You can use a reliable, local company, and the paint can be guaranteed for up to 10 years. It’s because the paint is so resilient. However, vinyl wrap can pick up more scratches. If it scratches the damage should be touched immediately because it cannot be fixed by changing the paint colour.

Plastic kitchen wrap often loses its plastic coating due to heat or moisture. This can be an issue in areas where there is for example a kettle, toaster, dishwasher and cooker because the materials placed near it could damage the coating and make it peel off. If money is tight and you’re looking to re-design your furniture, vinyl might be the best option. However, if you’ll be getting a lot of heat or moisture in the room on an hourly basis then that may not suit your needs very well.

If you decide to wrap your kitchen, we encourage you to do so with caution whatever you can to keep it away from any damage.

Placing your appliances in a way so that they avoid letting out moisture or heat near your cabinets and drawers and discolouring them.

Considerations

  1. Vinyl wrap can be installed much faster than spray painting it. The speed may be an issue if you really want it finished fast and are willing to sacrifice quality for speed. The kitchen sprays we offer can usually be completed in 1-3 days, depending on the size of the kitchen (with a typical kitchen sprayed within a day).
  2. If you go with a sprayed kitchen, make sure the upkeep is easy – we advise that you wipe down your kitchen after each use and do not use any solvents to keep the surface looking good throughout its lifetime.
  3. Thanks to spray paint, you can decorate a kitchen in a new colour or finish at any point. However, if you should ever chose to remove the vinyl wrap on your kitchen counters, it won’t be so easy to remove.
