If your kitchen has dark cabinets, choose a lighter shade for the backsplash to keep the room from feeling too heavy. If you have white or light-colored cabinets, a bright or darker paint color could work well. Since it‵s pretty easy to paint your backsplash, you can feel free to have some fun here. If you end up not liking the color you choose, you can just paint over it!
L-shaped kitchens work particularly well for homeowners with a small- to medium-sized kitchen space — they require at least one wall, which will usually feature cabinets and other permanent fixtures like a stove and sink. They may also incorporate a kitchen island, which can be extremely useful for food preparation and added storage. L-shaped kitchens often feature one portion of the "L" as an open counter space with a pass-through to a dining or living room to open up the entire kitchen space and create the impression of a larger area. L-shaped kitchens can be particularly functional and attractive spaces, as useful for cooking and cleaning as for gathering, eating and conversing.
When it's time to paint, make sure to prime your walls to prepare them for the new paint you've selected. And make sure you′re using the same type of paint that′s already on your kitchen walls. If you try to paint latex paint on top of oil-based paints, the paint will peel and chip. It‵s best to use the same paint that‵s already on your walls.
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.
