Kitchen cabinets are a piece of furniture that have to endure a lot of extreme temperature conditions. Sometimes, they have to bear extreme dryness, when you set your oven at high temperature, whereas, the next moment they are left alone to fight moisture and humidity resulting out of steam from boiling vegetables. Rough handling and an exposure to variety of stains are other damages that we inflict upon our cabinets. Needless to say, your kitchen cabinets must be extremely sturdy to withstand all forms of abuse. Although your kitchen cabinet material may be strong enough and shows no signs of withering even after years of usage, the surface of the cabinets is most likely to fade and become unattractive. Painting kitchen cabinets is a great way of pepping up the appearance of your worn out kitchen cabinets. Oftentimes, you may give a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets just to change the look of your kitchen.
There are many popular colors used to paint kitchen cabinets with. These are usually neutral shades so that they match with any type of kitchen furniture, like a wooden dining table. These colors can be gray, beige, cream, lemon yellow, wooden brown, steel gray, etc. There are other bright colors which are also very popular and are used on a large-scale, for example; blue, green, red, orange, mustard, pink, yellow, etc. Sometimes, the cabinets have glass doors so as to give them a showcase exterior. A stained glass on the doors of these cabinets would look perfectly classy for a modern kitchen.
An acrylic water based glaze is the best option for an already painted kitchen cabinet. If your cabinet has not been painted in recent times, then you can choose an oil based glaze, instead of the water based one. Crackle painting and faux painting are among the other options that you can use to give your kitchen an antique look. For crackle painting your kitchen cabinets, you need two colors of latex paint and a crackle glaze. Apply the base color to your kitchen cabinets after they have been cleaned thoroughly and allow it to dry. A thick coat of crackle paint is then applied on the base color. The top color is finally applied on the crackle paint.
