Sure, you could replace your cabinetry, but that is a pricey undertaking. Just as painting the walls can refresh a room, painting your cabinets can make your kitchen feel brand new, bringing beauty and style back to this heavily used space.
Application Tips.Do you have flat cabinet doors, or do they feature inset panels and raised edges? If you have flat doors on your kitchen cabinets, you can make quick work of paint application by using a paint roller with ¼ nap (for the most even application and smooth finish). Paneled kitchen cabinets require a little more work—use a paint brush to evenly coat angled surfaces and inset areas. Remember to choose a synthetic bristle brush if you are using latex paint, since the water-based formula will swell the bristles of a natural paint brush.
Determine which areas are large enough to accommodate the roller. Pour a small amount of paint in the tray, soak the roller cover, then thoroughly roll out the excess. Roll these large spaces of wall in a W-pattern, covering sections of about 4 feet by 4 feet. Bring the roller to about an inch or two of the painter is tape.
