Are you considering kitchen painting/kitchen cabinets painting?
The kitchen is considered the heart of a home and the busiest of all the rooms. It is where meals are cooked and consumed every day, and is where people gather during parties. Since the kitchen is the busiest room, and painting it is a major undertaking, have a meal plan before you start this house painting project. It could mean precooking the meals, or ordering take outs. Eating and cooking in the room while painting is dangerous.
Appliances, displays, or accessories should be moved. Be cautious in moving cooking appliances, such as microwaves, stoves, and refrigerators that have a water connection. Disconnect all gas appliances as well. Remove or cover electrical outlets. Cover the doorknobs and other fixtures to avoid getting paint on it. Remove food and grease stains on kitchen walls because they will interfere with the paint adhesion.
The paint to be used for a house painting project for kitchens should be durable to accommodate unique temperature changes and eliminates the need for constant touch-ups. Look for inspiration from the photographs of a magazine when selecting the paint colors. Use a bold color to make a statement. Red stimulates the appetite according to experts. The cabinetry, flooring, and appliances also contribute to the overall color palette and inspiration of the room. Warm colors would always look great with yellow wood tones. Designers agree that earthier colors, neutrals, and yellows are the best kitchen colors to use. These colors provide cheer, reflect light, and easily coordinate with cabinets and trims.
White would be the best color for small kitchens. This color reflects more light. It enhances the sense of space and makes the walls seem to draw back. The white color, when applied to cabinets, countertops, walls, and ceiling, can create a seamless space without boundaries. The use of the several shades of white and the combination of contrasting textures keeps an all-white room from feeling sterile. Deep or dark tones, such as black, navy, charcoal, and chocolate also creates the impression that the walls are farther back than they really are. House painting should always extend to the ceiling to create more impact.
A semi gloss finish is recommended for kitchen walls. This durable paint can withstand frequent washing.
Kitchens fall into the active room spaces category, but it doesn’t mean that it is recommended to paint every wall of the room with warm colors. Too much of warm colors can create a numbing, exhausting feeling. It is important to balance colors with a lot of energy.
