Look at the size of your kitchen before making your choice. A small kitchen with little natural light will look dark and dingy if you install dark gray kitchen cabinets.Kitchen cabinets painted in a light shade will reflect light, making your kitchen appear bright and airy. However, in a large kitchen, a darker grey will look great.
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.
If your wood cabinets are bare, natural wood, they may need little to no sanding. However, know that they will absorb a lot of paint - especially if you go with water-based latex paint. A primer will assist in making sure the coverage is even and through.
The peninsulas do not rule out family and friends from kitchen operations. Rather, peninsulas are often a snack bar, where customers can sit and socialize comfortably with the cook and wait for their dinner. Depending on their size, the Peninsulas can accommodate one to six individuals. Family members can enjoy coffee and read the journal while cooking breakfast or take a seat and meet between meals. This makes peninsulas a pleasant hub of active lifestyles in the kitchen.
