Sure, you could replace your cabinetry, but that is a pricey undertaking. Just as painting the walls can refresh a room, painting your cabinets can make your kitchen feel brand new, bringing beauty and style back to this heavily used space.
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.
Tools and Supplies You Will Need:Interior acrylic-latex paint,Primer,2 1/2-inch paintbrush,Roller frame and roller cover,Paint tray and liner,Canvas drop cloth,Masking film,Painters tape,TSP-3 sodium phosphate,Random orbital sander and sandpaper of varying grits,Dust mask or respirator,Tack cloth,Shop vacuum,Soft, clean cotton rags
The decision is all yours, because there is no big distinction between the two. Metal appears to be a little more scratch evidence while wood continues to feel better, so it's really your option.
