If you are like most people, your cabinets take up the most visible space in your kitchen. That is great when they are in good shape; but if they are not as beautiful as they could be, we will show you how to paint your kitchen cabinets like a pro.
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.
However, the two biggest reasons to use latex paint for kitchen cabinets have to do with and yellowing. Water-based latex paints are typically available in low or no formulas. Oil paints release at much higher levels. Using a paint that is known to emit to enclose your food, spices, and eating utensils might give you second thoughts, since these emissions have been linked to eye, nose, and throat irritation, dizziness, fatigue, and more serious conditions. And since surfaces covered in oil paint can take a yellow hue over time, your kitchen cabinets might start to look off-color and dingy.

The bright natural color creates also a bright atmosphere that gives the rooms spacious and elegant hospitality. And with trends toward roomy looks indoors, this will finally be a stylish decision for the core of your home.
