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."
You can paint your kitchen backsplash a solid color, use a stencil, or even create the look of faux tiles using painter's tape.
Painting a ceiling can be a pain in the neck (literally!), but it's a relatively easy project that you can do yourself. Before you begin painting, make sure to cover your floor, countertops, cabinets, appliances and any other surfaces with a drop cloth. Using painter′s tape, cover the area where the wall meets the ceiling, unless you′re using the same color on both surfaces.
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.
