If you are unsure which choice would best suit your kitchen, ask for numerous different paint swatches or cabinet door options before you install your new cabinets. Watch the light play on the different cupboards until you find the shade which suits your kitchen.
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.
Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.
Many designers today combine two colors for kitchen cabinets to give a vibrant look. Mix, match and make it work. Gray is like Swiss as a neutral shade: it does not make foes and plays well with others. As a consequence, almost any color or nuance is used for pairing and you can't go wrong. It even merges beautifully in kitchen cabinets with wood tones to further expand your choices. So have fun with it! So have fun with it! Experiment with two comparable shades, then attempt color contrast and see what's going on with you.
