Sure, you could replace your cabinetry, but that is a pricey undertaking. Just as painting the walls can refresh a room, painting your cabinets can make your kitchen feel brand new, bringing beauty and style back to this heavily used space.
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.
Painting the kitchen will help bring a much-needed sparkle back to it. In some ways, painting the kitchen is an easier project than painting bedrooms or living rooms because the amount of wall space tends to be limited. Most of a kitchen is wall space is dominated by base cabinets, wall cabinets, and backsplashes. On the downside, the small area that remains to be painted usually needs extensive cleaning and prep work. For an unfurnished kitchen, use either a roller or a paint sprayer for the walls. For window and door trim, always use a brush. For a furnished kitchen, use a roller on the large expanses of wall and a brush for the little strips, such as between the backsplash and the cabinets.
White cabinets can also emphasize any appliance, counter or floor colour. White can also bring out the natural beauty, from cherry to oak, of any wood grain. Many homeowners prefer solid wood assembly, so the preference you want in your wood finish isn't difficult to locate.
Despite the natural light in your kitchen, white cabinets produce an impressive transformation. White cabinets look fantastic, particularly colorful, if you are counter tops. White usually makes every room feel airy, open, clear and fresh and why not spend a lot of time in it?
