Wood Cabinets: Paint adheres best over a scuffed surface, making true wood cabinets a great candidate for painting. Sand the surface to prep it for paint and the result is a better bond and smoother finish. This is especially important if your wood cabinets are already stained or have a glossy finish - you will need to get through this finish layer first, either with sandpaper.
Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.
Both paint and stain come in a variation of colors. Painted cabinets can be easily wiped down; while you may need to add an extra finish, such as a clear varnish, to ensure that your stained cabinets remain fresh and easy to clean.
Since the kitchen is at the core of your home, it is only logical for you to have a feeling in that space that fits your character and your way of life. Today you can choose from all kinds of sophisticated kitchen styles, but the white kitchen is one of the favorites..
