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.
To help you out, you might opt for a laminate-specific primer or paint. These products are specially designed to bond to the shiny surface of laminate. But you do not have to spring for laminate-specific products - a quality primer will go a long way in helping paint stick to the surface.You will still need to sand the surface before and after priming - just make sure you use a fine sandpaper and go at it softly to avoid sanding through the laminate surface.
Single color kitchen cabinets are the most common and they are a good choice if blended in with the rest of the kitchen. However, two-tone kitchen cabinets are more attractive and make a great visual impact.Adapting to two-tone cabinets is very easy, whether it is the traditional or modern style. All it takes is a good arrangement and you will have a great spacious cabinet that you will be proud of!
