Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
Look at the size of your kitchen before making your choice. A small kitchen with little natural light will look dark and dingy if you install dark gray kitchen cabinets.Kitchen cabinets painted in a light shade will reflect light, making your kitchen appear bright and airy. However, in a large kitchen, a darker grey will look great.
A semi-gloss or gloss finish is the best choice when painting kitchen cabinets. A paint with some sheen will help reflect light and be more durable in the long run, which is important in the kitchen environment. Many formulas of both semi-gloss and glossy paint are described as washable and have increased resiliency when being washed or scrubbed clean. This is due to the fact that more resin and binders are used in formulating semi-gloss and glossy paint, giving the paint more durability.
