Wood Cabinets: Paint adheres best over a scuffed surface, making true wood cabinets a great candidate for painting. Sand the surface to prep it for paint and the result is a better bond and smoother finish. This is especially important if your wood cabinets are already stained or have a glossy finish - you will need to get through this finish layer first, either with sandpaper.
One thing is for sure: countertops ought to be white! Still, you can opt for whatever material/nuance you like, as long as its features satisfy your requirements. We recommend granite or concrete, since they require postponed sealing; they are highly resistant to stains; and their maintenance is fairly simple.
If your wood cabinets are bare, natural wood, they may need little to no sanding. However, know that they will absorb a lot of paint - especially if you go with water-based latex paint. A primer will assist in making sure the coverage is even and through.
