By using a professional painter that knows what they are doing and use the right products, cabinet painting is a powerful and cost effective way to remodeling your kitchen.

Sherwin Williams carry a ton of great products for cabinet painting as well as a process to complete the task. Your most import product to use will be your Primer.
The primer will give a firm and solid foundation for the paint to bond to. It will also seal the wood (the cabinets) from leaking any oils or stains that may still be on or inside the wood. So to really prevent this you will want to get an Oil Based Primer called Pro Block Interior Oil Based Primer.
You can't miss this step! Be sure to select a good primer for your cabinets, ask a Sherwin Williams Sales Associate to help you with making this choice.
Now that you've chosen the primer you now need to get your finishing coat. You can either use a Latex Finish, A Lacquer Finish or a Enamel Finish.
Each will give its own character look but if your going for the smooth fine finish then I would prefer either the Enamel or Lacquer Finish. A good product to use would be the Sherwin Williams Emerald Urethane Time Enamel.
Well we hope this helped you make the right choice when it comes to remodeling your kitchen, especially your cabinets.
