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.
The biggest advantage of white is that it looks equally good in traditional and modern environments. Its different shades (from ultra creamy to shiny cumulous) can fulfill both the needs of classic kitchens with wooden cabinets, and the expectations of minimal cookeries with lacquer finish. This is exactly why kitchen designers adore white!
Wood Cabinets: Paint adheres best over a scuffed surface, making true wood cabinets a great candidate for painting. Sand the surface to prep it for paint and the result is a better bond and smoother finish. This is especially important if your wood cabinets are already stained or have a glossy finish - you will need to get through this finish layer first, either with sandpaper.

And the same applies to white paints, if you decide that you want to add more color to the construction blocks of your kitchen.
