Paint is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update your home. In the kitchen, a few cans of paint will work wonders on the walls, cabinets, kitchen island, table, chairs and even your backsplash.
The traditional kitchen allows for flexibility, but it most often relies on simple design while making way for a few bold accents. For example, a white kitchen with black granite countertops might include a standout centerpiece, like a bold red kitchen island. These design choices maintain the overall look of a traditional kitchen while adding a bit of spunk to the design.
Paint can work wonders on your walls, but painting kitchen chairs is a great way to give furniture a facelift too.
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.
