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.
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.
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.
First of all, the functionality of the cabinets is important to you. And the best thing to do is to wonder how precisely do you expect to make the most of your fresh kitchen. Do you intend to organize numerous dinner parties, which require you to consistently cook distinct meals for various individuals?
