Choosing the Best Kitchen Paint
- kitchen remodeling
When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, there’s a lot of things to consider. A major consideration, for instance, is what parts you’re looking to change. One of the easier things to change is your paint or wallpaper. If you know nothing about painting, it may seem daunting choosing the best kitchen paint for your needs. Fortunately, you have the experts at McHale’s Kitchen and Bath here to help you!
What am I looking for with my kitchen paint?
For color, some of the most popular colors are red, blue, green, yellow, white, and gray. Yellow and red are both more exciting shades, while the other colors are more low-key, calming shades. As for the paint types, you’ll most likely be going with latex paint. Latex paint is highly durable and can be cleaned with warm water and soap. In older days, oil paints were more popular due to being durable. However, they carried toxic contaminants that released as the paint dried, smelled bad, and had to be cleaned with solvents.
For finishes, the best options are semi-gloss and satin. Kitchens are a busy part of the home, and the walls there will often need an extra bit of cleaning. Because of this, you’ll want to avoid a flat finish. Although it’s good at hiding flaws, it’s hard to wash without damaging the paint surface. Meanwhile, you’ll want to avoid gloss paint because it tends to show off imperfections in the wall’s surface. Semi-gloss and satin are both capable of taking a scrubbing while retaining their gloss over time. However, some of the other paints are better for painting certain parts of the kitchen. Gloss paint is best for around the sink due to its resistance to water while eggshell paint is fairly similar to satin paint.
