Painting your kitchen cabinets is a budget-friendly choice for design change, but it is not as easy as you might think — it requires a lot more prepping than painting. If you feel that it is beyond your comfort level, many professionals would be willing to take on the project. Undaunted? Go for it! Read on and learn how to paint your kitchen cabinets like a pro.
Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look. However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as slab cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
Consider Your Cabinets.The first thing you should do when deciding to paint your kitchen cabinets is to consider what type of material your cabinets are made from. Do you have solid wood cabinets or are they composed of wood veneer over particle board? Are your cabinets made from MDF or laminate? Each of these materials will have a bearing on which type of paint you use for your cabinets.
