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!
The other important thing to remember is to use an oil-based primer. Due to the more porous nature of MDF, water-based primers can swell the surface. Use an oil-based primer for the first coat and then you can paint kitchen cabinets with water-based latex paint without worrying about moisture absorption.Laminate Cabinets: Painting laminate kitchen cabinets is possible, but more tricky than painting wood or MDF cabinets. Laminate is a printed, plastic that is adhered on top of a base layer - usually a composite material. The finish is slick so you will have to make sure you put in the prep work for a quality finish.
Now it is time to choose between grey stained cabinets and a grey paint. When you paint your cabinets your color will be solid, and you will be able to choose between a mat and a gloss finish. By staining your cabinets, you will create a translucent effect. If you are using wooden cabinets, the grain may show through, adding interesting detail.
Just like fashion trends, today and tomorrow are the designer trends for the home. If you don't want to spend precious time continuously redecorating the kitchen, consider sticking to the white as a staple.
