Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
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.
If you know you would like to have grey cabinets in your kitchen, the first step is to look at your choice of grey. Would you like to have light gray kitchen cabinets, or are you interested in using a darker color?
Traditional cabinets are usually marked by more detail, sometimes in the form of a door with a raised panel or design. Colors range from pure white and cream to red, bright and various wood tones. The built-in door where you have a frame aligned around the door and the door with a frame is also very popular in the traditional style of clothing.
