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."
After you‵ve finished sanding, make sure to prime your chairs. Many people choose to skip this step, but you shouldn‵t. Priming will ensure your chairs have a beautiful, clean finish. Once the primer is completely dry, you can begin painting your chairs. Remember to go with the grain of the wood and use consistent strokes with your paintbrush or roller. Let the paint dry in-between coats, and make sure to seal the chair with a layer of polyurethane. This final step will protect your chairs from inevitable kitchen spills and general wear and tear, and it will also give them a glossy, even finish.
A semi-gloss finish is even glossier than a satin one, but it reflects a lot of light without being too over the top. Another tough finish that′s easy to scrub, it′s a smart choice for the kitchen and especially your backsplash. Glossier finishes tend to highlight imperfections in the wall, so this isn‵t the best option if your walls have a few dents and dings.
