The Best Finish for Kitchen Cabinets.Choosing the right paint finish for kitchen cabinets is important, since it affects how durable your cabinets will be in the long run. Cabinet doors and drawers are subject to touching, pulling, slamming, and more, while shelves routinely have objects being slid in and out. These factors can make painted cabinets subject to scratching and chips, but you can lessen this by choosing the right paint finish for kitchen cabinets.
Application Tips.Do you have flat cabinet doors, or do they feature inset panels and raised edges? If you have flat doors on your kitchen cabinets, you can make quick work of paint application by using a paint roller with ¼ nap (for the most even application and smooth finish). Paneled kitchen cabinets require a little more work—use a paint brush to evenly coat angled surfaces and inset areas. Remember to choose a synthetic bristle brush if you are using latex paint, since the water-based formula will swell the bristles of a natural paint brush.
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.
Red's a color in the moment. In many respects, it can be used. You like the color, but don't want the cabinets red, think about making them accessory. It's a wonderful way to take red as the canister or the furnishings (tools or chairs) into the room without being overwhelmed. A bright red tapestry and red curtains are fun.This looks great in an apartment's little kitchen. Look contemporary and be like no other.
