Should I paint my solid wood kitchen cabinets?
Consequently, is painting wood cabinets a good idea?
Painting costs a lot less than buying new cabinets and having them installed. If you need to make an economical choice, painting is the way to go. Even if you are not forced into making the most economical decision, painting is still an attractive option because it gives you more money to spend elsewhere.

Similarly, you may ask, can you paint real wood cabinets?
Wood cabinets are ideal for painting, but any surface that can be scuffed with sandpaper can be painted. Laminate cabinets require a special bonding primer. Special cabinet paints are available that provide a smooth finish, but any high-quality paint should work. Make sure your paint is acrylic, not vinyl.
If all the finish does not come off the surface, you cannot re-stain them and get an even color. Stain needs to penetrate inside the wood, unlike paint. finish, but those products do not hold up over time. Just do one search for kitchen cabinets, and about 90% of what you will find will be white painted cabinets.
