If a surface has already been painted and the paint is in good, clean condition, it likely will not need priming. Unpainted drywall, bare wood, and painted surfaces in poor condition should be primed. Apply the primer with the roller on large areas and with the brush on areas too small to accommodate the width of the roller. Roll the Large Areas.
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.
Just make sure that if you are painting wood cabinets, you properly prep the surface before using latex paint. While oil-based paint goes on smooth, even over wood surfaces, latex paint is more likely to show variances in the grain or texture. If you want a smooth, even look, you will need to do some prep work beforehand to make your painting project a success.
Do not overlook the lighting if you design a custom kitchen. Fluorescent lights are tough and use a great deal of power. Strategic lights-generally unique lights for the job fields, and lighting under kitchen counters and cabinets will be used to install the ideal customized kitchen. This gives a stylish, spacious look to your kitchen. A nice tip that you need to understand is that green-friendly LED are needed in your custom kitchen-they last longer than fluorescent lights.
