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.
For the empty room with no finished floor, masking and covering is not needed.Paint drips on the sub floor will be covered up later by the floor covering.If using a paint sprayer,be sure to drape plastic over doors to adjacent rooms to prevent paint mist from migrating. For the finished room, apply masking tape to the trim before painting the walls. Lay a canvas drop cloth on the floor.Drape large objects such as cabinets, appliances, and tables with plastic sheeting or with masking film.
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.
Once you have sorted and chosen the right tonalities and undertones, you have to decide how to apply them. Painting provides a sharp, seamless look to kitchen cabinets while staining provides a structured texture that really shows the wood below.
