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.
For some unique, high-design kitchen cabinet ideas, look for rustic kitchen cabinets. The juxtaposition of rustic cabinetry with the latest appliances and contemporary counters and touches creates a warm and inviting, modern kitchen space.Whitewashed wood has been making the rounds at the top European kitchen design shows for years. The effect lightens the color of the wood grain and adds a high-end look to your wood cabinets all while looking fresh and modern today and in ten years.
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.
Using gray in kitchen cabinets, you are naturally inclined to choose your favorite and go with it. Light or explore the dark side. But the quantity of room you work with, particularly if your kitchen is on the "cozy" side, is also essential to consider.
