Now that you have chosen your new cabinets, it is time to pick a color for your countertops. If you have chosen a kitchen with grey cabinets, you will have a range of different counters to choose from.Grey cabinets go with attractive tiles in bright colors such as aqua or red. You could also install a marble or granite counter top, which will create an attractive, monochromatic look to your kitchen, with the grey in your cabinets repeated in the veins or patterns in the stone.Alternatively, if you are looking for an industrial finish, steel or zinc countertops are a great choice.
If a surface has already been painted and the paint is in good, clean condition, it likely will not need priming. Unpainted drywall, bare wood, and painted surfaces in poor condition should be primed. Apply the primer with the roller on large areas and with the brush on areas too small to accommodate the width of the roller. Roll the Large Areas.
The other important thing to remember is to use an oil-based primer. Due to the more porous nature of MDF, water-based primers can swell the surface. Use an oil-based primer for the first coat and then you can paint kitchen cabinets with water-based latex paint without worrying about moisture absorption.Laminate Cabinets: Painting laminate kitchen cabinets is possible, but more tricky than painting wood or MDF cabinets. Laminate is a printed, plastic that is adhered on top of a base layer - usually a composite material. The finish is slick so you will have to make sure you put in the prep work for a quality finish.
