A semi-gloss or gloss finish is the best choice when painting kitchen cabinets. A paint with some sheen will help reflect light and be more durable in the long run, which is important in the kitchen environment. Many formulas of both semi-gloss and glossy paint are described as washable and have increased resiliency when being washed or scrubbed clean. This is due to the fact that more resin and binders are used in formulating semi-gloss and glossy paint, giving the paint more durability.
To help you out, you might opt for a laminate-specific primer or paint. These products are specially designed to bond to the shiny surface of laminate. But you do not have to spring for laminate-specific products - a quality primer will go a long way in helping paint stick to the surface.You will still need to sand the surface before and after priming - just make sure you use a fine sandpaper and go at it softly to avoid sanding through the laminate surface.
Considering that not all the spaces should be vivid and bright, you have perfect options for formal cabinets.
The cabinet style can make a big difference to the cost, because a very easy cabinet door is much cheaper than one with lots of details. The kind of finish may also influence the cost. If this is a problem, you can paint or stain your cabinet to save cash on your own. Finally, wood species will change the price. Some wood is cheaper than others, so if the cost is a problem, you can choose a less expensive wood and stain it like your choice.
