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.
