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.
Before you begin painting, make sure to buy a paint roller with an extension handle so you can easily reach the ceiling without standing on a ladder. If your ceiling is textured, you‵ll want to use a thick-nap roller to ensure you can completely cover the irregularities in the surface.
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.
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.
