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.
To help you out, you might opt for a laminate-specific primer or paint. These products are specially designed to bond to the shiny surface of laminate. But you do not have to spring for laminate-specific products - a quality primer will go a long way in helping paint stick to the surface.You will still need to sand the surface before and after priming - just make sure you use a fine sandpaper and go at it softly to avoid sanding through the laminate surface.
In case the casual look of your kitchen has started to bore you or you simply want a change or contrast, two-toned kitchen cabinets should be on top of your list.By adding color diversity, you will have an opportunity to point out specific parts of your kitchen that you especially like and the whole area will look better organized and chic.
Luxurious kitchens have been set up so that the dated cuisines or the fact that pans or cups have been stacked sideways do not bother people. You can be proud to demonstrate friends and family a fresh kitchen for lunch or for social activities. You can also show it, because if you had brand-new luxury kitchens, there are many people doing the same thing.
