For a kitchen remodel, the kitchen will be fully stocked with cabinets, appliances, flooring, and more. In this instance, you are dealing with far less square footage than in an empty room. Cabinets take up a majority of the wall space. One method is to imagine that it is an empty room and buy enough paint to cover all walls as if it were an empty room. The extra paint can be saved for those inevitable touch ups.
Just make sure that if you are painting wood cabinets, you properly prep the surface before using latex paint. While oil-based paint goes on smooth, even over wood surfaces, latex paint is more likely to show variances in the grain or texture. If you want a smooth, even look, you will need to do some prep work beforehand to make your painting project a success.
Avoid painting kitchen cabinets with an eggshell or flat finish paint. These paints are not as washable as semi-gloss or gloss finishes, and you run the risk of rubbing through your paint job the next time you need to scrub your cabinet doors.
