Selecting the right paint finish is essential when painting a high-traffic space. Paints come in a number of finishes, from flat to high-gloss. The general rule of thumb is the more matte the finish, the harder it is to clean. If a finish is glossy, it tends to be more "scrubbable."
If you have kitchen chairs that feel dated or boring, don't rush out to buy a new set. Freshen them up with some paint and bring new life to your room.
One idea for a classic Tuscan kitchen is to pair deep-brown paneled cabinetry with a beige- or gold-veined marble countertop. Rustic subway tiles can be used to create a distressed, Tuscan-influenced backsplash, while iron chandeliers provide a glamorous finishing touch. While you might not want a completely red kitchen, consider using a deep red decorative rug in this space to give the room a splash of color.
Paint is an easy and inexpensive way to update a kitchen. If you' re never painted a kitchen before, it can seem like an overwhelming task, especially when it comes to choosing the colors and finish for painting kitchen walls.
