Painting White Kitchen Cabinets

As we all know that white kitchen cabinets are very famous for its attractive and striking look. White color has the ability to lift up your kitchen accessories and appliances look and it also go with any color. But after some time white color starting fade and kitchen cabinets losing its attractiveness. Before your cabinets color starting fade you have to make decision of re-paint it. There are variety of ways to add color in kitchen cabinets example black, red, purple, yellow, gray, brown and many more.

Before painting white kitchen cabinets keep following things in your mind.

  • Remove all hardware, drawer and doors.
  • Clean any dirt or grease off the cabinets, and then lightly sand them with a sander or sanding pad.
  • Tape off all of your appliances, accessories and inside of cabinets if necessary, and prep your area for priming and painting.
  • I recommend oil based primer on kitchen cabinetry because it has a bonding agent and a harder finish. It’s also necessary to use oil based primer if you plan to use oil based paint. In addition, it also helps to use a conditioning preservative like Penetrol to lengthen the time you have to work with your oil based primer and to minimize brush strokes.
  • After your primer is dry, sand any brush strokes that do occur with a medium to fine sanding pad.
  • Apply two coats of oil based paint. I chose oil over latex because I believe it’s better to use oil based paint on cabinetry in high traffic areas like kitchens because oil based paint is typically more durable over time. I used semi-gloss for its shine and a surface that’s easy to clean.
  • You need to clean up any oil based product with mineral spirits or paint thinner.
