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.
Advances in water-based paint formulas have made it much easier to use latex paint for kitchen cabinets. Many latex paints are now produced with greater durability for cleaning and can stand up to a good scrubbing. This is a must for a kitchen, so definitely look for a paint that is described as washable for your cabinets.
Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
Elegant or casual can be the kitchen. Even with bright colors, this space could be hot and inviting. If you're looking for retro style, consider putting black and white tiles on the ground and putting red clothes and equipment on the countertops. The most important thing to keep in mind is that there are no strong, vacant areas in the kitchen. This space has a dynamic, beautiful feeling that is only emphasized by the beauty of white.
One tip: decide how much change you want to make if you choose the color of white to put in your kitchen. If your flooring or counters are not changed, take account of existing colors. The floors of dark wood mingle well with almost every shade of white. Floors are so diverse that it is best to have multiple colors of paint chips and to lie them in different lights on the floor to see how the colors mix.
