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.
Furniture that looks like it´s been dipped in paint is a popular home design trend, and this technique works well with kitchen chairs. To try it, paint just the legs of your chairs or the backs of them. Or reverse this effect and paint the entire chair except for the bottom half of the legs. This is a great way to introduce a hint of color without completely covering your chairs. Chalkboard paint can also work wonders with kitchen chairs. Use it to create mini chalkboards on the back of each chair so family members and guests can claim their spots when mealtime rolls around.
If you'd like to paint your kitchen backsplash, you′ll need to figure out the colors you′d like to use. It‵s important to consider the other colors you have in the room before settling on the perfect shade.
Since kitchens are such a busy part of a home and often need extra cleaning, a satin or semi-gloss finish is the best options. Satin and eggshell finishes are commonly believed to be the same, but in fact, satin is a bit shinier. Satin finishes are easy to clean and good at standing up to mildew, stains and dirt.
