When selecting your kitchen colors, think about the mood you want to create.
Many interior design professionals advise choosing warm colors that stimulate the appetite.
But before you start choosing your color, you must consider several elements, such as the notion of space and your accessories (furniture, etc.).
In some kitchens, space is limited, which may direct your choice towards colors that will have the effect of enlarging your room.
Think about the colors of the elements that will make up your kitchens, such as your appliances and utensils.
Next, avoid using the same color for your accessories and your walls; otherwise, your room will have an overly monochrome effect.
On the other hand, putting too many different colors will make your kitchen seem too busy.
To avoid this, go for contrasting colors. If you choose to paint your wall in light tones like clay gray, add color with accessories or furniture that showcase vibrant hues.
This will allow you to add a contemporary touch to your kitchen.
The size of the room, the height of the walls, the architectural elements, and the light source are important things to consider when choosing colors.
The ceiling also plays a big role in the size of your room.
For small kitchens, prefer light colors for your walls and ceilings as they visually expand spaces. White is the best option for this effect.
For large kitchens, try darker tones on a ceiling if the walls are light-colored or vice versa.
If you want to repaint your kitchen, your choice isn’t just about color.
The desired effect is also very important and will direct your purchase towards a specific type of paint finish.
There are different types of finishes: matte, gloss, satin, and ultra-gloss.
• For a clean and homogeneous effect, the matte finish will be the best choice, but the surface should not be washed too frequently as this could deteriorate the paint.
• To have a shiny effect and enlarge the rooms, we recommend a glossy or even ultra-glossy finish. We recommend this finish because this space being messy and damp, the surface can be cleaned as many times as you wish without damaging the paint.
• Satin finish – It is versatile and can be applied in any room of your home: kitchen, living room, bedroom, showers, etc.
There’re two main families of paint which differ in their composition.
The most popular are water and oil paints.
The acrylic paint (water paint) is considered the most suitable for kitchens because it resists moisture and doesn’t degrade too rapidly.
Also, this composition contains a little solvent, so after application, it gives off very little odor and has no risk to health.
The kitchen furniture, as well as the tiled worktop, can also benefit from painting to adopt a more contemporary look and in line with your tastes.
The advantage of painting is that you can choose from many different colors and finishes.
Also, the paint adapts to all surfaces, whether they are flat or not.
For a porous floor, it will be preferable to go for acrylic type paint.
This type of paint may not need an undercoat.
The porous surface may consist of porous concrete or a tile type cement or terracotta tiles.

Kevin began painting houses with his father’s company, C&K Painting, in 1996. His father taught him how to use a brush, roller, and caulk and clean a brush properly. He then worked for several other paint companies, where he learned how to spray oils, lacquers, and all water-based finishes. In 2012, after 15 years of experience, he decided to get licensed and start the Maller Painting Company.
