Rust-Oleum Canada Launches DIY Coating Kits


Earlier this week, coatings company Rust-Oleum Canada released new do-it-yourself coating system kits to transform cabinets, countertops and flooring without the cost of a full renovation.

According to the company, the HOME Transformations collection equips maxed out consumers with everything they’ll need to give their home’s surfaces a “fantastic and frugal facelift” in one convenient kit.

“We wanted to empower homeowners and DIYers to make impactful updates to beautify their homes easily and affordably by bringing all-in-one kits to market,” said Rust-Oleum Canada Vice President and General Manager Maurice Lobreau.

“HOME Transformations is going to be a game changer for design-driven and budget-conscious Canadians seeking quick and custom updates to a variety of surfaces in their homes from the kitchen and bathroom to the front foyer, mud room, laundry room and beyond.”

The kits are reportedly available in a variety of on-trend color options and are considered more durable than standard paint, requiring no stripping, sanding or priming. Rust-Oleum says they are also designed to yield “big results” in as little as a weekend.

Each kit contains an Original Krud Kutter Cleaner Degreaser, a base coat and a top coat. The collection is comprised of three kits, each designed to tackle specific surfaces in the home:

  • HOME Transformations Cabinet Coating Kit is available in 45 color options and is suitable for laminate, melamine and wood (bare, previously painted or sealed);
  • HOME Transformations Countertop Coating Kit is available in 39 color options and is suitable for ceramic tile, laminate, melamine, porcelain tile and wood;
  • HOME Transformations Floor Coating Kit is available in 34 color options, Matte and Semi-Gloss finishes and is suitable for a variety of substrate floors including interior tile, vinyl and wood.

“Cabinets, countertops and flooring take up a lot of visual real estate in a home so the ability to transform them quickly, easily and affordably with high-performance, high-quality results makes HOME Transformations the ideal solution to update, personalize and add value to any home,” shared Color Theorist and Paint Expert Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault.

“These surfaces are investment finishes—and having a selection of timeless hues coupled with easy product application that offers proven performance and longevity allows consumers to have confidence in tackling affordable DIY updates.”

The company explains that for use, the surface will be cleaned with the degreaser, then rinsed thoroughly and dried. Afterwards, stir and apply the base coat in the desired color to the surface and, after it’s dry, the top coat can be applied.
