Painting the kitchen will help bring a much-needed sparkle back to it. In some ways, painting the kitchen is an easier project than painting bedrooms or living rooms because the amount of wall space tends to be limited. Most of a kitchen is wall space is dominated by base cabinets, wall cabinets, and backsplashes. On the downside, the small area that remains to be painted usually needs extensive cleaning and prep work. For an unfurnished kitchen, use either a roller or a paint sprayer for the walls. For window and door trim, always use a brush. For a furnished kitchen, use a roller on the large expanses of wall and a brush for the little strips, such as between the backsplash and the cabinets.
Oil-based paints are known for their resilient finish, and so they might be your first thought as the best paint for kitchen cabinets. If you open the cabinet with sticky or greasy hands, you can scrub away any residue without worrying about wearing away the paint or dulling the surface. However, oil paints have some flaws that become especially hard to ignore when painting cabinets.
Look at the size of your kitchen before making your choice. A small kitchen with little natural light will look dark and dingy if you install dark gray kitchen cabinets.Kitchen cabinets painted in a light shade will reflect light, making your kitchen appear bright and airy. However, in a large kitchen, a darker grey will look great.
