Most of our mornings, afternoons and evenings are spent in the kitchen, preparing meals for ourselves and loved ones; painting your kitchen is a great and inexpensive way of creating a warm and homely space in which you can break bread with your friends and family. It’s a new year and you feel that it is time to update the look and feel of your kitchen; however, the only problem is that renovating your kitchen can be quite an expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient endeavour. So, what do you do when you don’t have the time, money and energy required to overhaul the old to bring in the new? Perhaps you should consider painting your kitchen.
Paint Your Kitchen Walls
Cooking can be quite messy, especially on days when you want to keep your little ones occupied by asking them to help mommy prepare a superhero meal. The best paint to use on your wall is water-resistant, semi-gloss paint; it is easier to clean.
Perhaps the tiles above your stove are looking a tad bit old and tired; they have succumbed to the powers of the steam that rises every time you make your world-famous chicken soup. There is nothing more frustrating than having to remove tiles and go through the process finding new ones, and cleaning up afterwards. Painting your tiles is a hassle-free and cost-effective way of upgrading your kitchen. Since the surface of the tiles is quite glossy, you have to use surface conditioner as a primer to ensure that the paint sticks to the tiles; additionally, you need to uses enamel paint, as other types of paint may not stick to the surface.
Painting over your existing cupboards is much cheaper than getting rid of them and installing new ones. Additionally, deciding to paint them presents you with an opportunity to be as creative as you want. Make sure that the colour of paint you choose for your cupboards complements the colour of your kitchen walls and tiles. The best paint to use on your tiles is oil-based paint, as it is durable and it dries harder. Make sure that you clean your cupboards thoroughly before you paint them.
If you want your kitchen to look as good as – if not better than – new, you need to invest in high-quality paint. Hyper Paint only stocks premium paint brands such as Dulux; in fact, we are the leading stockists of Dulux paint in Southern Africa!
