Painting can bring a new life to your kitchen area without breaking the bank. Depending on the type of style you want your kitchen to give off the color you choose will be very important.
With all the color options you have to choose from how do you know what color will work well for your kitchen? Well here are some things to consider. Are you looking for a more calm feel when people come in? Then you should lean more to the grey, blue, and green family. If you want a more pop of color that brightens up the room and brings energy then go more yellow and maybe even red.
While you are deciding what color to choose keep in mind that paint comes in two options Latex paint and oil paint.
Latex paint: Is a popular option for kitchens and come in many different finishes
Oil paint: Has a more shiner finish and is resistant to water, which makes it a great option for your kitchen walls
Types of finishes
It is good to know which finish you would want to put over your paint color. A finish is just how much light the surface of your paint reflects
High Gloss: Very High durability mainly used for kitchen and bathrooms because they are so easy to clean in high traffic rooms
Semi-Gloss: High durability Just like the high gloss it is easy to clean and bounces off more light into the room than a flatter finish
Satin: High durability, this finish gives you the in-between feel of a mat finish and a semi-gloss. It is a great medium when you can't decide what look you may want in your kitchen.
Eggshell: Medium Durability, Give you everything a satin finish will give you with less of the shine. Doesn’t make it dull the color still pops you just won't have that extra shine giving off more light.
Matte Paint: Low Durability, Has no shine at all. It is a flat color not very easy to clean because of the lack of gloss.
