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.
Furniture that looks like it´s been dipped in paint is a popular home design trend, and this technique works well with kitchen chairs. To try it, paint just the legs of your chairs or the backs of them. Or reverse this effect and paint the entire chair except for the bottom half of the legs. This is a great way to introduce a hint of color without completely covering your chairs. Chalkboard paint can also work wonders with kitchen chairs. Use it to create mini chalkboards on the back of each chair so family members and guests can claim their spots when mealtime rolls around.
An easy and affordable way to update a room, stencils can also create a striking backsplash. They´re also much less permanent than tiles, and you can easily paint over them when you`re ready for something new.
When it comes to paint, there are two types to choose from: oil paint and latex paint. Oil paint is very resistant to water, which is why it works well in kitchens. It also tends to be very shiny, so it's mainly used on cabinets, woodwork and doors. Latex paint is the more popular option for kitchen walls and it comes in a few different finishes.
