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.
Before you begin painting, make sure to remove any cushions or fabric from the chair. If you′re unable to remove the cushions, cover them with plastic. Next, you′ll need to prepare the surface by sanding it with coarse-grit sandpaper. This will create a surface that the paint can really adhere to.
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.
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.
