Figure out the square footage of your walls so you know how much paint to buy. Usually in a new-construction kitchen, the space will be devoid of everything but drywall. Calculate the square footage of each wall by multiplying room height (likely 8 feet) by room length (variable). Then add up all walls to get the total.
For the empty room with no finished floor, masking and covering is not needed.Paint drips on the sub floor will be covered up later by the floor covering.If using a paint sprayer,be sure to drape plastic over doors to adjacent rooms to prevent paint mist from migrating. For the finished room, apply masking tape to the trim before painting the walls. Lay a canvas drop cloth on the floor.Drape large objects such as cabinets, appliances, and tables with plastic sheeting or with masking film.
Oil-based paints are known for their resilient finish, and so they might be your first thought as the best paint for kitchen cabinets. If you open the cabinet with sticky or greasy hands, you can scrub away any residue without worrying about wearing away the paint or dulling the surface. However, oil paints have some flaws that become especially hard to ignore when painting cabinets.
On both sides of the cabinet doors, after the first is dried you can begin painting Paint with easy, steady strokes. Two or three paints may be applied, with a drying moment between two and four hours.
