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.
Single color kitchen cabinets are the most common and they are a good choice if blended in with the rest of the kitchen. However, two-tone kitchen cabinets are more attractive and make a great visual impact.Adapting to two-tone cabinets is very easy, whether it is the traditional or modern style. All it takes is a good arrangement and you will have a great spacious cabinet that you will be proud of!
And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
