The other important thing to remember is to use an oil-based primer. Due to the more porous nature of MDF, water-based primers can swell the surface. Use an oil-based primer for the first coat and then you can paint kitchen cabinets with water-based latex paint without worrying about moisture absorption.Laminate Cabinets: Painting laminate kitchen cabinets is possible, but more tricky than painting wood or MDF cabinets. Laminate is a printed, plastic that is adhered on top of a base layer - usually a composite material. The finish is slick so you will have to make sure you put in the prep work for a quality finish.
Now that you have chosen your new cabinets, it is time to pick a color for your countertops. If you have chosen a kitchen with grey cabinets, you will have a range of different counters to choose from.Grey cabinets go with attractive tiles in bright colors such as aqua or red. You could also install a marble or granite counter top, which will create an attractive, monochromatic look to your kitchen, with the grey in your cabinets repeated in the veins or patterns in the stone.Alternatively, if you are looking for an industrial finish, steel or zinc countertops are a great choice.
The Best Finish for Kitchen Cabinets.Choosing the right paint finish for kitchen cabinets is important, since it affects how durable your cabinets will be in the long run. Cabinet doors and drawers are subject to touching, pulling, slamming, and more, while shelves routinely have objects being slid in and out. These factors can make painted cabinets subject to scratching and chips, but you can lessen this by choosing the right paint finish for kitchen cabinets.
