Can I Paint Over Laminate Cabinetry?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I are in the process of closing on this house, and I would like to give the kitchen a new look by painting the cabinets and adding hardware before we move in.

I know I want to paint them white... but as you can see they are a lovely blonde oak color with a white laminate piece in the middle. Are there any suggestions on what color white would work best after they are sanded and ready? Can I even paint over the laminate piece?
