Default Painting over red semigloss

Just wondering what if anything I should do to repaint my kitchen. It is a dark red semi gloss right now that is in great shape only a couple years old but since we are redoing the cabinets and counter tops we decided to paint as well. Now my question is do I need to primer first? Should I use one of those paints with the primer and paint in one? should I just slap the paint over the old paint? The new color is almost a pastel green or tea leaf green something like that.

Yep scuff sand the walls, wipe them down and paint. A separate tinted primer can be an option since you are covering a dark red and if you have grease splatters or other stains then a separate tinted primer may be a consideration imo.

It's all clean paint, none near the stove or sink. Not very old and in great shape, just the wrong color.

Scuff it, wipe it, and paint it then post a pic so we can all see this kitchen with all the work you are doing to the cabinets, counters and walls.

Wipe walls first, then apply two coats of paint. There is no need to apply primer.

Good Luck!
