satin finish for cabinets (by J [FL]) Posted on: Apr 9, 2021 9:47 AM
Message:

If you are painting over raw wood with a rush and foam roller on kitchen cabinets, would it be better to use a satin paint finish instead of a semi-gloss for rental? I have read that satin is less likely to show brush marks than SG is. I also read that satin is better for future paint touch ups.

Or do the shininess and cleanability of semi-gloss in a rental outweigh the benefits of satin?

(I already understand that the cabinets need to be degreased, sanded, primed before the paint job--no explanations of these needed. Also I will not be buying or renting a sprayer for this job. Only asking about the finish. Thanks!) --72.188.xxx.xxx

As a general rule, flatter sheens hide brush/roller marks better, while glossier sheens show them much worse. Itís a trade off between clean-ability and appearance.

I think satin would be as shiny as you should go. --172.58.xxx.xx

I would use satin. It is really hard with semi-gloss not to show brush and roller marks. --107.197.xx.xx

On cabinets, I would use the most durable, glossy paint I can find.

Foam applicators don't leave brush marks.

I care most about durability and ability to clean them. --68.229.xxx.xxx

DH is a big fan of Glidden Gel Paint. It's very very very shiny and hard when dry. It's oil-based and thick, he hasn't tried thinning it yet but thinks it might work. --50.82.xxx.xxx

Thanks I am going to try the SW Emerald Urethane Enamel paint. It is expensive but I have a contractor discount at SW and I believe I can get by with one gallon for this. --72.188.xxx.xxx

J,

Raw wood: first sand and SEAL the grain. Then bonding primer,

then paint.

If this is raw oak, seal then use grain filler. Paint will not bridge the gap of the grain.

Semi gloss for durability and wash ability. Canít wash satin paint.

Paint the frame with a whiz roller. Remove the doors and lay them flat so any brush marks settle out.

If this is a small project, use rattle cans to spray the doors.

We use Sherwin Cabinet paint and they look like factory finish.

Color: Alabaster. Looks better than stark white and is what you get when you order white cabinets.

If these are new, I find that finished cabinets are MUCH easier and the same price after all your labor, lost time, and supplies.

BRAD. --73.102.xxx.xxx

Behr makes a specific cabinet paint. Iíve used that with a small roller meant for very smooth surfaces with excellent results. Light sand in between coats. People thought I sprayed them. --73.186.xxx.xxx

Cabinets? Always semi-gloss.

Brush marks are just character that has been added to the rental at no extra charge. Brush marks will never be a deal breaker. --184.57.xxx.xx

Check out Flowtrol. It's an additive you can add to your semi gloss paint that slows down the drying process so it 'flows' longer, eliminating brush strokes. --108.201.xx.xx
