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.
Figure out the square footage of your walls so you know how much paint to buy. Usually in a new-construction kitchen, the space will be devoid of everything but drywall. Calculate the square footage of each wall by multiplying room height (likely 8 feet) by room length (variable). Then add up all walls to get the total.
The decision whether the kitchen room looks lower or bigger will be one of the two techniques for you to make a decision on how you want the kitchen. Light colors make the kitchen look larger, and a facade to reduce the kitchen space gives the dark colors. Decreasing kitchen area will make the kitchen more comfortable. The correct color must be chosen to harmonize with other decorations at home.
The correct way to choose the color of the kitchen is to have a meeting of all the family members. In the choice, everyone must have a say. This is a useful way to put the thoughts of everyone on the table, so that every preference can be fulfilled in the final selection. If their wishes are taken into consideration, every family member will feel better.
