Painting Wood Kitchen Cabinets

Painting wood kitchen cabinets at times can prove to be challenging. Depending on the current state of your kitchen cabinet and the type of wood used you will need to finalize the technique for painting them.

Deciding on the colour for your kitchen cabinet can also prove to be difficult. Check magazine and browse websites offering designs to get some ideas. Faux painting for kitchen cabinets can be an idea you could try.

For painting kitchen cabinets choose bright and light colours if you have a small kitchen. A darker shade can give closed appearance with the light not reflecting on the surface.

When selecting the colour for painting wood kitchen cabinets remember to test run the paint. Always allow the paint to dry, as the shades change as the paints dry.

Your wood kitchen cabinet could be made of real wood and may have never been painted before. They were stained and varnished. If you do not want to cover the wood grains you may think of staining kitchen cabinets.

However if you decide to do away with the grains and choose to paint them you will need to clean the cabinets and apply primer to the surface.

Depending on the amount of staining existing the primer may need to be applied twice.

Use putty to cover all areas that need some mending. Sand the surface lightly with fine sandpaper. Areas that have staining will need some additional sanding work.

You will need to wipe off the surface using damp cloth. Start painting kitchen cabinets with glossy or semi glossy for paint. Let the first coat dry off before applying the second coat. Check your work and decide if you will need a third coat.

Use some lubrication like cooking oil at the surface where the cabinet doors touch the cabinets. That will ensure the paint does not stick and at the same time will allow the cabinets to dry off.

The use of glossy paint will allow effortless maintenance and cleaning. Wiping food and other residues or grease will become easier.

If you’re wood cabinet has been painted before you will need to plan differently. For painting old kitchen cabinets you will have to clean the surface but also sand or scrape off the paint. You may need to use hard finished sand papers to get a smoother surface. You will need to use pigmented sealant type primer so that the primer adds a coat of colour of it own.

You may use two colours to paint your kitchen cabinet. Try painting one coat on top of the other. Do some sanding to remove the paint from some areas to give your cabinet a distressed look. That is of course if you would like to experiment with something as new as distressed kitchen cabinets.

If your kitchen cabinet is made of wood and laminated, use the same procedure as above to paint it. Once the painting process is over apply 2 to 3 coats of glossy polyurethane sealer. Let the sealer dry for the overnight and then you should fasten the doors to the cabinets.

As you can see from the strategies mentioned above painting wood kitchen cabinets is not too hard. With some knowledge and enthusiasm you can easily achieve great results.
