For one thing, while it goes on smoothly, oil-based paint takes a long time to dry in between coats—up to 16 hours. Without good circulation (such as inside of a cabinet), waiting for the paint to dry can really become an issue. Keeping your cabinets emptied for days as you let the paint dry between coats can be a nuisance that many people are not willing to deal with. Latex paint, however, is ready for another coat in as little as two to four hours. This means you can easily paint in a day and put your kitchen back together pronto.
For the empty room with no finished floor, masking and covering is not needed.Paint drips on the sub floor will be covered up later by the floor covering.If using a paint sprayer,be sure to drape plastic over doors to adjacent rooms to prevent paint mist from migrating. For the finished room, apply masking tape to the trim before painting the walls. Lay a canvas drop cloth on the floor.Drape large objects such as cabinets, appliances, and tables with plastic sheeting or with masking film.
Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.
Most food is consumed in the kitchen, so your family and friends can enjoy their fresh clean white look at the time. It gives you a good feeling and your kitchen will be lively. If you feel crowded and restricted in your kitchen, the rooms will feel bigger with white kitchen cabinets.
