Unless you are dealing with an empty room with fresh drywall, kitchen walls will need a lot of cleaning. Assume that areas above and around the stove, oven, and counters need to be cleaned with warm water and 3-sodium phosphate. Door trim usually can benefit from the TSP cleaning, too. Remove dust and cobwebs from the tops of baseboards and other trim with a vacuum and a damp cloth.Mask and Cover
Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look. However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as slab cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
Figure out the square footage of your walls so you know how much paint to buy. Usually in a new-construction kitchen, the space will be devoid of everything but drywall. Calculate the square footage of each wall by multiplying room height (likely 8 feet) by room length (variable). Then add up all walls to get the total.
