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.
Both paint and stain come in a variation of colors. Painted cabinets can be easily wiped down; while you may need to add an extra finish, such as a clear varnish, to ensure that your stained cabinets remain fresh and easy to clean.
One thing is for sure: countertops ought to be white! Still, you can opt for whatever material/nuance you like, as long as its features satisfy your requirements. We recommend granite or concrete, since they require postponed sealing; they are highly resistant to stains; and their maintenance is fairly simple.
