Oil Paint vs. Latex Paint.Wondering whether you should reach for old-school oil paint or widely-available latex paint for your kitchen cabinets? The short answer is that latex paint is best for cabinets. Oil paint makes a case for itself with its reputation for easy application and a long-lasting finish that can be scrubbed and cleaned regularly, but latex paint is the best choice for most cabinets since it offers lower levels of volatile organic compound sand is quicker to dry.
Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.
Wood Cabinets: Paint adheres best over a scuffed surface, making true wood cabinets a great candidate for painting. Sand the surface to prep it for paint and the result is a better bond and smoother finish. This is especially important if your wood cabinets are already stained or have a glossy finish - you will need to get through this finish layer first, either with sandpaper.
Select 2 colored themes, not very many colors. Likewise endeavor to avoid the black with steel colored kitchen. It's awesome to include any inside painting design ideas, which would give the feeling of an uncluttered kitchen. A couple of the ideal color combos for the modernized kitchen would be aqua blue or green walls that have a couple parts of the walls painted a white color, plus in addition white kitchen appliances also extra items of steel. An extra fabulous theme would be half-lavender or half-white walls that have black appliances as well as steel furniture.
