If you are renovating your kitchen, and you are tempted to choose grey kitchen cabinets, you might wonder how to create an interesting and relaxing space.Grey works very well in kitchens. Greys can offer up serenity or warmth, depending on the side of the spectrum they fall.
Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
Oil Paint vs. Latex Paint.Wondering whether you should reach for old-school oil paint or widely-available latex paint for your kitchen cabinets? The short answer is that latex paint is best for cabinets. Oil paint makes a case for itself with its reputation for easy application and a long-lasting finish that can be scrubbed and cleaned regularly, but latex paint is the best choice for most cabinets since it offers lower levels of volatile organic compound sand is quicker to dry.
Do not add a foundation layer of paint if you prefer real wood cabinets and want them to shine through. Just use a white paint to coat the units and let it cool for about twelve hours. Use a sandpaper to wear some of the paint throughout the cabinet's handles. Round off with sandpaper some rough corners of the cabinet as well.
