A simple, solid color can work on a kitchen backsplash, but chances are it´ll feel too boring over time. If you want to add some drama to your walls without relying on tiles, try stenciling a design, favorite quote, food-related words, or a beloved family recipe on your backsplash.
Just like the title of the popular movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.
A painted kitchen ceiling can also help draw the eye upward or bring high ceilings down. It`s a nice way to completely envelop a room in color if you choose to paint your ceiling and walls the same color. But choosing the right color for a kitchen ceiling can be tricky.
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.
