Why Work With Us
Is your client undecided whether to refinish their kitchen or bathroom cabinets or go with new ones? Old cabinets can usually benefit from refinishing, but the quality often doesn't meet expectations. At Kitra, we aim to provide a solution to this issue. We've spent 3 years developing the equipment, techniques, and products to give our interior designer and contractor clients what they never could get: factory-grade, industry-certified results.
Reduce your renovation expense significantly by refinishing instead of replacing the cabinets.
Pay for the installation of new cabinets and any additional costs that result from the replacement.
Transform your old cabinets using our factory-grade refinishing techniques, backed by a 25-year warranty.
Receive a poor refinishing job that causes the cabinets to chip and peel soon after.
Take advantage of our experience in bringing your cabinet design to life the way you visualize it.
Hard to persuade your regular cabinet maker to make modifications to an older kitchen.
Carry on with your normal routine with little interruption, while we finish your job that is measured in days rather than months.
Live with the inconvenience of not having a kitchen for months, while you wait for the kitchen remodeling to complete.
With no hazardous pollutants, you can rest confident in our completely home-safe and odorless kitchen-certified coating.
Receive a coating system that is not approved for kitchens or bathrooms, resulting in difficulties with future maintenance.
Let us handle the specifics so you can concentrate on what matters most. We'll keep you informed from start to finish.

Minor Cabinet Modifications
We remove all door and drawer faces to prepare and lacquer them at our shop. You have complete use of your kitchen during this process.
Soon after, our mobile spray technicians return to complete the on-site refinishing and lacquering of your cabinetry, utilizing the same European lacquer that was applied in our shop.
All newly finished door and drawer faces are installed with new modern hardware of your choice. You get to enjoy your brand new kitchen, at a fraction of the cost of new, with surprisingly little disruption.
We were extremely happy with the results of the kitchen cabinet refinishing and Kitra's professionalism. The cabinets look perfect and the work was meticulous. There was no noise disruption between them and the pest exterminator from North Vancouver working on our home. It was like they weren't even there. They went over and above and also helped us with some helpful tips from their experience in the business that we had not thought of. All of this helped give us a kitchen I love.

Cabinet Doors & Drawers Refinished De-greased, sanded, caulked and coated to perfection.
Saved Monies saved by not purchasing new cabinets.
Client Satisfaction Rate Timeline hiccups sometimes arise but we never leave a client anything but happy.
Landfill Waste Saved Not including countertops and backsplashes that usually go along with it.
Kitra was started by Vancouver entrepreneurs Anthony Pavlakovic and Toddy Pretty because no one in North America was refinishing kitchen cabinetry and other millwork to a factory-grade level. Everything that was being done was unfortunately of low-quality, highly temporary and would rarely ever meet the demands of interior designers, architects and licensed general contractors. Kitra wanted to change this.
Following a three year period of research and development, Kitra has created a proven solution for anyone looking for a no-compromise, perfect refinish. Our lacquer has zero hazardous pollutants, contains no formaldehyde, is non-flammable, is non off-gassing, and conforms to the strictest health-based program requirements (LEED & Green Seal). Combining this with our proprietary spray equipment and techniques and Kitra provides a guarantee-backed coating that shocks every one of our clients.
We at Kitra feel strongly that the life of cabinetry can and should be absolutely extended well beyond their 15-20 year lifespan, and that the landfills could be spared millions of tons of unnecessary waste. Using world-class materials and innovative techniques, Kitra provides
a truly exceptional product that is a win-win for everyone:
the homeowner and the environment.
Founded one of the largest, high-end finishing companies in the city of Vancouver, Canada servicing architects, custom home builders and interior designers. Anthony holds two U.S. patents on finishing related products, and graduated from UBC Sauder School of Business in Finance with honours.
