White is also a timeless choice which can add airiness and light to kitchens with small windows. Besides, it leaves a lot of space for impressive colors and personal elements, which would break the monotony and make the place look cooler.
Do not sand too much, since the veneer is just a thin layer hiding what is beneath. You are just looking to make the surface rough enough to give the primer and paint something to adhere to.MDF: Kitchen cabinets made from MDF are great candidates for painting, as long as you know how to properly prep them. You have two priorities when prepping MDF cabinets for painting: seal the edge and use an oil-based primer.The edge of MDF is more porous, and if it does not already have a finished surface, then you will want to use some drywall compound to seal it and keep moisture from swelling the material during the painting process.
If a surface has already been painted and the paint is in good, clean condition, it likely will not need priming. Unpainted drywall, bare wood, and painted surfaces in poor condition should be primed. Apply the primer with the roller on large areas and with the brush on areas too small to accommodate the width of the roller. Roll the Large Areas.
What you should know about green cabinet materials, is that whilst they come at a higher price, some of them actually offer more durability than regular materials.
