Painting a Kitchen

The thought of painting a kitchen can be overwhelming for most home owners. In these tough economic times, we all try to save where we can. One way to do this is to do some jobs around the house you may have otherwise hired professionals to do.

When planning the job of painting a kitchen one of the first things people think of, is what color you should use. I usually recommend not painting it too dark. Try to pick up on the colors of the countertops, tiles and cabinets. I like to use Benjamin Moore paints. I find they cover very well and are very easy to clean without damaging the color.

In a kitchen it is best to have a semi-gloss, eggshell or other finish that you can wipe down. It must also be treated with a fungicide to prevent mold and mildew. The one paint I like is Perma White especially for bathrooms and you can get this at Benjamin Moore stores and now The Home Depot. This however has limited colors you can tint it to. Benjamin Moore has an excellent paint for kitchens also.

If you are having a hard time in deciding on color, go online and Google you countertop name and you may be able to find matching colors. One website I know of that does this is cambriausa.com. Just click on the Benjamin Moore area and it will take you to your Cambria counter. Click on this and it will give you 3 options. This will give you a designer look in your kitchen.

A little trick I use when painting a kitchen, is to use a little wall paint and use this to mix into a white ceiling paint so it coordinates well and is still nice and bright. You can get more information on how to paint a kitchen by clicking on this link.
