Look at the size of your kitchen before making your choice. A small kitchen with little natural light will look dark and dingy if you install dark gray kitchen cabinets.Kitchen cabinets painted in a light shade will reflect light, making your kitchen appear bright and airy. However, in a large kitchen, a darker grey will look great.
A semi-gloss or gloss finish is the best choice when painting kitchen cabinets. A paint with some sheen will help reflect light and be more durable in the long run, which is important in the kitchen environment. Many formulas of both semi-gloss and glossy paint are described as washable and have increased resiliency when being washed or scrubbed clean. This is due to the fact that more resin and binders are used in formulating semi-gloss and glossy paint, giving the paint more durability.
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.
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.
