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.
Oil Paint vs. Latex Paint.Wondering whether you should reach for old-school oil paint or widely-available latex paint for your kitchen cabinets? The short answer is that latex paint is best for cabinets. Oil paint makes a case for itself with its reputation for easy application and a long-lasting finish that can be scrubbed and cleaned regularly, but latex paint is the best choice for most cabinets since it offers lower levels of volatile organic compound sand is quicker to dry.
Do not sand too much, since the veneer is just a thin layer hiding what is beneath. You are just looking to make the surface rough enough to give the primer and paint something to adhere to.MDF: Kitchen cabinets made from MDF are great candidates for painting, as long as you know how to properly prep them. You have two priorities when prepping MDF cabinets for painting: seal the edge and use an oil-based primer.The edge of MDF is more porous, and if it does not already have a finished surface, then you will want to use some drywall compound to seal it and keep moisture from swelling the material during the painting process.
When you select White, be sure to select the sort of finish for your kitchen. Typical finishes either glossy or flat are staining or painted. Most distributors and producers are common in their white kitchen cabinets. Whether you are staining, painting or buying fresh cabinet, white is a fantastic way to shine, enlarge and make your kitchen a fresh life.
