Additionally, semi-gloss or gloss paints are a better choice for a finish when painting in a room with humidity or moisture—like a kitchen. The extra sheen offered by this paint finish will help to ward off water spots and stains.
Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look. However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as slab cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
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.
