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.
Just like the title of the popular movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.
Before you begin painting, make sure to remove any cushions or fabric from the chair. If you′re unable to remove the cushions, cover them with plastic. Next, you′ll need to prepare the surface by sanding it with coarse-grit sandpaper. This will create a surface that the paint can really adhere to.
One idea for a classic Tuscan kitchen is to pair deep-brown paneled cabinetry with a beige- or gold-veined marble countertop. Rustic subway tiles can be used to create a distressed, Tuscan-influenced backsplash, while iron chandeliers provide a glamorous finishing touch. While you might not want a completely red kitchen, consider using a deep red decorative rug in this space to give the room a splash of color.
