Paint can work wonders on your walls, but painting kitchen chairs is a great way to give furniture a facelift too.
Tuscan kitchens are often accented by elegant designs, like an ornate wood range hood over a stove, or handmade tiles to provide an Old World look to a backsplash. Copper fixtures, distressed stone and wood floors are common in Tuscan kitchen designs. Add decorative vases of bright sunflowers to countertops to give the room a natural spot of color. While the overall feeling of a Tuscan kitchen should be family-friendly, the room should feel grand upon entering.
Selecting the right paint finish is essential when painting a high-traffic space. Paints come in a number of finishes, from flat to high-gloss. The general rule of thumb is the more matte the finish, the harder it is to clean. If a finish is glossy, it tends to be more "scrubbable."
A painted kitchen ceiling can also help draw the eye upward or bring high ceilings down. It`s a nice way to completely envelop a room in color if you choose to paint your ceiling and walls the same color. But choosing the right color for a kitchen ceiling can be tricky.
