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.
Use black and dark wood for your traditional kitchen cabinet and don’t worry about the darkness if you have an open space with natural lighting. Class never gets old. Explore pictures of kitchens with dark cabinets in order to explore this interesting option.
And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
You need accessories like home wares, cloths and furniture to look at for your kitchen in order to develop the cottage feel. Examples of the use of white, torn, butchered surfaces, strewn vintage towels and dishcloths, an antique kitchen clock and plates on open racks over windows and doors. Store pots, glazed ironware and glass jars might be other accessories. A pitcher of fresh-cut flowers could also be placed to produce more cottage charm.
