However, the two biggest reasons to use latex paint for kitchen cabinets have to do with and yellowing. Water-based latex paints are typically available in low or no formulas. Oil paints release at much higher levels. Using a paint that is known to emit to enclose your food, spices, and eating utensils might give you second thoughts, since these emissions have been linked to eye, nose, and throat irritation, dizziness, fatigue, and more serious conditions. And since surfaces covered in oil paint can take a yellow hue over time, your kitchen cabinets might start to look off-color and dingy.
When we think of grey, a standard color may come to mind. However, your base grey color choice is worth thinking about. This is because there is no single grey color in which one size fits all.Instead, grey is influenced by a range of different undertones, from red to green to blue. Warm greys such as taupe or putty will make your kitchen appear warm and cozy, whereas a grey with a blue undertone will have an industrial feel.
Sure, you could replace your cabinetry, but that is a pricey undertaking. Just as painting the walls can refresh a room, painting your cabinets can make your kitchen feel brand new, bringing beauty and style back to this heavily used space.
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.
White kitchen cabinets can be paired with black countertops and other black furniture like stools or chairs, including black equipment. The black and white layout strategy in your kitchen space can generate a formal atmosphere.
