For a kitchen remodel, the kitchen will be fully stocked with cabinets, appliances, flooring, and more. In this instance, you are dealing with far less square footage than in an empty room. Cabinets take up a majority of the wall space. One method is to imagine that it is an empty room and buy enough paint to cover all walls as if it were an empty room. The extra paint can be saved for those inevitable touch ups.
Application Tips.Do you have flat cabinet doors, or do they feature inset panels and raised edges? If you have flat doors on your kitchen cabinets, you can make quick work of paint application by using a paint roller with ¼ nap (for the most even application and smooth finish). Paneled kitchen cabinets require a little more work—use a paint brush to evenly coat angled surfaces and inset areas. Remember to choose a synthetic bristle brush if you are using latex paint, since the water-based formula will swell the bristles of a natural paint brush.
Think of paint finishes as you might the spectrum of colors on a paint fan. In this instance, though, the spectrum is not colors but gradations of glossiness: matte (flat, non-shiny) at one end and high-gloss (so shiny you can almost see your face) at the other end. Which is the best paint finish for the kitchen? Satin and semi-gloss tend to be favorites, while matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and beads of moisture will cause streaks.
A large double ceramic dish with a bridge over tap to ensure maximum use of a practical sink is another key feature of the farmhouse kitchen.
When it's about handles, pews may be common because they are practical with porcelain inserts and pewter knobs. The wooden knobs can also supplement the laid back appearance of the kitchen and bind in any areas of the woodworking surfaces. Granite workstations, often used in high-use fields around Range and often combined with a shaky grain cutting board, are increasingly prevalent to the farmhouse kitchen.
