And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
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.
White is also a timeless choice which can add airiness and light to kitchens with small windows. Besides, it leaves a lot of space for impressive colors and personal elements, which would break the monotony and make the place look cooler.
