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.
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.
Before selecting a paint, measuring the kitchen walls is a nice idea for kitchen paint. Correct measures will save you unnecessary difficulties later. The kitchen situation needs to be discussed in detail with the shop advisor, as this will help him to make paint decisions available. It is nice to take samples of painting colors, as this will give you an idea of your look.
