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.
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.
When we think of grey, a standard color may come to mind. However, your base grey color choice is worth thinking about. This is because there is no single grey color in which one size fits all.Instead, grey is influenced by a range of different undertones, from red to green to blue. Warm greys such as taupe or putty will make your kitchen appear warm and cozy, whereas a grey with a blue undertone will have an industrial feel.
