Now it is time to choose between grey stained cabinets and a grey paint. When you paint your cabinets your color will be solid, and you will be able to choose between a mat and a gloss finish. By staining your cabinets, you will create a translucent effect. If you are using wooden cabinets, the grain may show through, adding interesting detail.
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.
To help you out, you might opt for a laminate-specific primer or paint. These products are specially designed to bond to the shiny surface of laminate. But you do not have to spring for laminate-specific products - a quality primer will go a long way in helping paint stick to the surface.You will still need to sand the surface before and after priming - just make sure you use a fine sandpaper and go at it softly to avoid sanding through the laminate surface.
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.
They should be correctly ready before the cabinets are painted. A few mild sanding methods are needed if the wood finish or ancient paint is soft and glistening. The surface must be rough and easy to adhere to the new paint. Clean them with soap and water after sanding the wardrobe surface. After drying, the cabinets edge, floor, counter tops, walls and other surfaces should have painting tape to prevent the color from entering places that you do not want. The painting should be applied.
