For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today is neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like:grey,blue,white,taupe.Wood will always be a highly sought after kitchen cabinet material. For a fresh update to wood cabinets, consider exotic woods that have striped grain to them.
Consider Your Cabinets.The first thing you should do when deciding to paint your kitchen cabinets is to consider what type of material your cabinets are made from. Do you have solid wood cabinets or are they composed of wood veneer over particle board? Are your cabinets made from MDF or laminate? Each of these materials will have a bearing on which type of paint you use for your cabinets.
Application Tips.Do you have flat cabinet doors, or do they feature inset panels and raised edges? If you have flat doors on your kitchen cabinets, you can make quick work of paint application by using a paint roller with ¼ nap (for the most even application and smooth finish). Paneled kitchen cabinets require a little more work—use a paint brush to evenly coat angled surfaces and inset areas. Remember to choose a synthetic bristle brush if you are using latex paint, since the water-based formula will swell the bristles of a natural paint brush.
