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.
Before choosing a color, look at your space and find a shade that works best with the other accents in the room. It`s also important to consider how much light your kitchen gets. Light blue is a good go-to color for kitchen ceilings. Reminiscent of the sky, it feels light and airy.
If you love the look of tiles but prefer to use paint on your backsplash, you can create faux tiles with paint. This can be a long, tedious process, but the results are worth it. Using the tape to create different sized "tiles," you can mimic a number of different materials, from glass to stone. If you`d like to incorporate a bunch of colors into your backsplash, this technique is the way to go.
Yellow, red, blue, white, green and gray are all popular paint colors for kitchen walls. Yellow is a cheerful shade that can create a welcoming space while red can feel intense; both are believed to stimulate the appetite. Blue, white, green and gray are more low-key, calming shades.
