White is also a timeless choice which can add airiness and light to kitchens with small windows. Besides, it leaves a lot of space for impressive colors and personal elements, which would break the monotony and make the place look cooler.
Tools and Supplies You Will Need:Interior acrylic-latex paint,Primer,2 1/2-inch paintbrush,Roller frame and roller cover,Paint tray and liner,Canvas drop cloth,Masking film,Painters tape,TSP-3 sodium phosphate,Random orbital sander and sandpaper of varying grits,Dust mask or respirator,Tack cloth,Shop vacuum,Soft, clean cotton rags
And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
7. Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
5. Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
