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.
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.
You can also use chalkboard paint to create a unique backsplash in your kitchen. The classic black chalkboard color works well with white or light-colored cabinets, while a lighter shade is recommended for dark cabinets. A chalkboard backsplash will provide a canvas where you can write down grocery lists, recipes or special notes for your family. Easy to wipe clean, chalkboard paint works well in a space where there tends to be grease and spattered food.
Traditional kitchens typically incorporate painted cabinets with or without glass front doors, simple granite or laminate countertops, and hardwood floors. The best traditional kitchens lean on classic elements, while still allowing room for family fun or guest entertainment. Freshen up the look by mixing in modern or industrial elements, like unique lighting fixtures or boldly painted walls.
