Painting your kitchen Cupboards

Painting your kitchen Cupboards

  • You spend a lot of time in your kitchen and with today’s trend of having open plan kitchens so do your guests.
  • Usually the skeleton of the kitchen does not need much work and you would concentrate on cupboard doors and drawers.
  • Laminated wood can be painted however the paint will not last as long as painting solid wooden panels.
  • It is important to sand down your doors and make sure you get rid of all fat and grease.
  • Once sanded and all holes are filled with wood filler remove all dust and paint with a primer.
  • When primer is dry give it a light sanding and remove all dust.
  • Use a water-based enamel to paint.
  • If it is required to change the counter tops these could be cut to exact size by your hardware shop in your area and replaced, there are many inexpensive options.
  • Door handles are inexpensive and could make a huge change to the look of your kitchen.
  • You would need a foam roller and a brush, wood filler and sand paper.
