Painting a ceiling can be a pain in the neck (literally!), but it's a relatively easy project that you can do yourself. Before you begin painting, make sure to cover your floor, countertops, cabinets, appliances and any other surfaces with a drop cloth. Using painter′s tape, cover the area where the wall meets the ceiling, unless you′re using the same color on both surfaces.
If you have a really large kitchen and very high ceilings, you can go with a more bold hue such as dark gray or navy blue. To avoid highlighting any imperfections on your ceiling, it's best to use a flat finish, but some interior designers like to use a glossy finish for new homes to reflect light and add some dimension to the space.
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.
It‵s also important to purchase high-quality paint when painting your kitchen walls. By choosing a well-known paint, you´ll ensure the one you´ve chosen won`t peel or chip after a little wear and tear. If you`re not sure which paint brands are best, ask for help when you visit your hardware store, and a sales associate can give you detailed information.
