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.
Additionally, semi-gloss or gloss paints are a better choice for a finish when painting in a room with humidity or moisture—like a kitchen. The extra sheen offered by this paint finish will help to ward off water spots and stains.
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.
