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.
Oil-based paints are known for their resilient finish, and so they might be your first thought as the best paint for kitchen cabinets. If you open the cabinet with sticky or greasy hands, you can scrub away any residue without worrying about wearing away the paint or dulling the surface. However, oil paints have some flaws that become especially hard to ignore when painting cabinets.
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.
Luxurious kitchens are installed so that people no longer have to become embarrassed by their dated kitchens, or by the fact that pots and pans are stacked sideways. You can be proud and show you a new kitchen to friends and family for a dinner or social. You can also show it, because there are many people who would do the same if they had brand new luxury kitchens.
