If you are unsure which choice would best suit your kitchen, ask for numerous different paint swatches or cabinet door options before you install your new cabinets. Watch the light play on the different cupboards until you find the shade which suits your kitchen.
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.
Now it is time to choose between grey stained cabinets and a grey paint. When you paint your cabinets your color will be solid, and you will be able to choose between a mat and a gloss finish. By staining your cabinets, you will create a translucent effect. If you are using wooden cabinets, the grain may show through, adding interesting detail.
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.
