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.
For one thing, while it goes on smoothly, oil-based paint takes a long time to dry in between coats—up to 16 hours. Without good circulation (such as inside of a cabinet), waiting for the paint to dry can really become an issue. Keeping your cabinets emptied for days as you let the paint dry between coats can be a nuisance that many people are not willing to deal with. Latex paint, however, is ready for another coat in as little as two to four hours. This means you can easily paint in a day and put your kitchen back together pronto.
For some unique, high-design kitchen cabinet ideas, look for rustic kitchen cabinets. The juxtaposition of rustic cabinetry with the latest appliances and contemporary counters and touches creates a warm and inviting, modern kitchen space.Whitewashed wood has been making the rounds at the top European kitchen design shows for years. The effect lightens the color of the wood grain and adds a high-end look to your wood cabinets all while looking fresh and modern today and in ten years.
