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.
For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today is neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like:grey,blue,white,taupe.Wood will always be a highly sought after kitchen cabinet material. For a fresh update to wood cabinets, consider exotic woods that have striped grain to them.
Just make sure that if you are painting wood cabinets, you properly prep the surface before using latex paint. While oil-based paint goes on smooth, even over wood surfaces, latex paint is more likely to show variances in the grain or texture. If you want a smooth, even look, you will need to do some prep work beforehand to make your painting project a success.
