How to remove vinyl wrap from kitchen doors

Fancy a change-up in your kitchen? An easy way to change the look and feel of your kitchen is by removing the vinyl wrap. Find out how you can remove vinyl wrap from your kitchen doors.

If your kitchen cupboards are looking a little tatty, you may be thinking of painting them. But first, you’ll need to remove any vinyl. Follow our step-by-step guide.

How to remove vinyl wrap from kitchen doors

To remove the vinyl wrap from your kitchen doors, follow these steps:

  1. Start up by heating the vinyl wrap with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften it
  2. Using a plastic scraper or a credit card, gently lift a corner of the wrap
  3. Then, gradually peel the wrap off while continuing to heat it
  4. If there is any adhesive residue remaining, you can clean it off with a solvent such as rubbing alcohol or vinegar

Be aware when using a heat gun that it can damage the surface if you do not use it properly. If you’re at all unsure, we strongly recommend hiring a professional.

Risks of removing vinyl wrap yourself

Removing vinyl wrap yourself instead of hiring a professional does come with some potential risks. These include:

  • Potential damage to the surface of the kitchen door
  • Leftover residue that can be difficult to remove properly

It’s also worth noting that removing vinyl wrap can be very time consuming and fiddly, especially if you don’t have previous experience.

For best results, we always recommend hiring a professional.
