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.
Considering that not all the spaces should be vivid and bright, you have perfect options for formal cabinets.
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.
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.
There can be kitchens leaning towards the modern, or just an airy feeling. You can emphasize stainless steel or black equipment in the contemporary white kitchen. However, some individuals prefer white equipment in the kitchens. This can still be pretty, because you can emphasize the shiny white kitchen with aqua or green tiles and decorative products.
