The type of paint used for wooden kitchen cabinetry are acrylic enamel paint, water based paints or alkyd paints. Acrylic or waterbased paints are a type of paint which can easily be cleaned off with water. They contain less fumes and are often odorless. Alkyd paints, on the other hand, are oil based and typically have a strong odor. Instead of using water for clean up, alkyd paints use mineral spirits.
Painting shaker style cabinets in white or gray, for example, allow them to fit in a more contemporary setting. Pairing it with a luxurious natural stone countertop and a rich color makes it well suited for classic kitchen settings. Alternatively, the use of wood stains in deep, dark color helps in enhancing the rich undertones and bringing out distinctive graining patterns of the wood. Overall, shaker style cabinets offer flexibility and versatility in terms of design despite its traditional origins.
