Application Tips.Do you have flat cabinet doors, or do they feature inset panels and raised edges? If you have flat doors on your kitchen cabinets, you can make quick work of paint application by using a paint roller with ¼ nap (for the most even application and smooth finish). Paneled kitchen cabinets require a little more work—use a paint brush to evenly coat angled surfaces and inset areas. Remember to choose a synthetic bristle brush if you are using latex paint, since the water-based formula will swell the bristles of a natural paint brush.
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.
If your wood cabinets are bare, natural wood, they may need little to no sanding. However, know that they will absorb a lot of paint - especially if you go with water-based latex paint. A primer will assist in making sure the coverage is even and through.
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.
Now, it does not imply the room should be a monochromatic color of white just because you've got a white kitchen. No, you can position granite counters with gray and blue tones against the shiny white kitchen cabinets. The walls have a delicious, warm and inviting vanilla color. The white colors you place in your cuisine can vary greatly, even by applying a number of shades to capitalize on the appearance.
