Advances in water-based paint formulas have made it much easier to use latex paint for kitchen cabinets. Many latex paints are now produced with greater durability for cleaning and can stand up to a good scrubbing. This is a must for a kitchen, so definitely look for a paint that is described as washable for your cabinets.
When balanced, however, grey can offer both warmth and serenity. A gray kitchen, therefore, makes a great choice.By adding texture, accent colors or bright hues, you can create a striking grey kitchen. In fact, grey cabinets will stand out from more usual white, wooden or beige kitchen cabinets, adding interest to your home. Many homeowners rule out grey kitchens because they believe the color to be dull or boring.
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.
Most farmhouse kitchens also have a distinct welsh dresser, often fitted with a wooden top, with a possibility of additional shelving areas. This strengthens the principal idea of the farmhouse kitchen, where most cooking appliances are in sight and not stored.
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.
