For one thing, while it goes on smoothly, oil-based paint takes a long time to dry in between coats—up to 16 hours. Without good circulation (such as inside of a cabinet), waiting for the paint to dry can really become an issue. Keeping your cabinets emptied for days as you let the paint dry between coats can be a nuisance that many people are not willing to deal with. Latex paint, however, is ready for another coat in as little as two to four hours. This means you can easily paint in a day and put your kitchen back together pronto.
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.
Single color kitchen cabinets are the most common and they are a good choice if blended in with the rest of the kitchen. However, two-tone kitchen cabinets are more attractive and make a great visual impact.Adapting to two-tone cabinets is very easy, whether it is the traditional or modern style. All it takes is a good arrangement and you will have a great spacious cabinet that you will be proud of!
6. Build your pot racks or re-purpose the item you may use for hanging pots. I built one piece out of a 4-foot streak of tangled oak, and some brackets.
But with some minor changes any kitchen can be improved.
