For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today is neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like:grey,blue,white,taupe.Wood will always be a highly sought after kitchen cabinet material. For a fresh update to wood cabinets, consider exotic woods that have striped grain to them.
And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
Oil-based paints are known for their resilient finish, and so they might be your first thought as the best paint for kitchen cabinets. If you open the cabinet with sticky or greasy hands, you can scrub away any residue without worrying about wearing away the paint or dulling the surface. However, oil paints have some flaws that become especially hard to ignore when painting cabinets.
Tip Number 2
Custom kitchens are significant investments in economic matters. They take a long time, and it's even more expensive to undo something you don't like and can't live with than constructing your own kitchen. Go to a timeless design and look good in the next few years. A nice tip is to choose a traditional over a trendy one, unless you are certain that you will be able to live with your decision for future years. Keep the cabinet neutral, and use stand-out colors on areas of the wall, you may readily paint (and re-peel if you hate). If you want to experiment with something bright, hold it bright.
