The kitchen is one of the most heavily used rooms in the entire home and the wear on it shows, which may come as to no surprise when it comes time to repaint it.
There are many things that one should consider when one is painting or repainting the kitchen, and it is helpful to know what one is doing before starting in on the project.
The size of your kitchen can have an impact on the kinds of colors that you would want to select for your kitchen.
There are some who might say that a larger kitchen should get lighter colors, those that are more pale as it were.
A smaller kitchen, on the other hand, can go well with colors that are brighter, and certainly not the sorts of darker colors that might make a person feel as if the walls could be tighter or more narrow.
Colors that are lighter, like a mild cream color, could be just right for a smaller kitchen.
The way your kitchen is lit really changes the way that your walls appear both during the day as well as at night.
If your kitchen is well lit, for example, getting adequate light from the windows and the lights that you have installed — track lighting or otherwise — you will find that you can have just about any paint color that you want in your kitchen within reason.
Kitchens that are too dark, on the other hand, are a bit more restrictive in terms of what colors you would want to use for painting.
Darker colors would possibly work for you but some might say that they make a dark kitchen look and feel even darker.
On the other (other) hand, it may behoove you to update the lighting in your kitchen while you are already making improvements to your kitchen in the form of the paint on the walls.
An accent wall is a wall that’s painted separately from the other walls in the room — and it can come with a number of different features.
The wall that’s above the backsplash of your sink, for example, might be fantastic as far as accent walls go.
An accent wall can be the wall that looks nicest out of all of the walls of your home’s kitchen.
The walls of your kitchen are a bit unlike the other walls in your home, in that all of the kitchen walls are exposed to different kinds of things that dirty up the walls, many of which come from cooking in your home.
The various greases that can come about from cooking will make quite a mess over time, even if they are not visible.
Since you will not want to paint on top of dirt and dust and layers of oil, it is best to properly clean your walls prior to starting the painting process.
Though there are some who might tell you that you always need two coats of paint for any given paint job and sometimes more, you do not necessarily always need them.
You can get a feel for if you will need a second coat of paint depending on how your paint job looks after you have finished applying your primer coat as well as your first coat of paint.
It will be quite evident from just the appearance of the wall.
