How to make an immediate change in just one day
A top-of-the-line kitchen remodel can be very expensive – new cabinets, new appliances, flooring, countertops, lighting, furniture and accessories can average $55,000. However, prudent homeowners don’t have to spend quite so much to create a stylish, attractive kitchen space.
The first place to start is with kitchen paint. Before replacing your cabinets, consider how a few coats of new paint or an innovative kitchen painting technique can change the entire look of your room. Here are some kitchen painting ideas to consider.
- Go back to basics. Sand down and paint or stain your kitchen cabinets. A sander, paint, latex gloves and a brush is all you need. Check out new hardware to complete the fresh look.
- Think about a pickling technique. Simply paint on a light coating of a flat, oil-based paint. Then wipe enough paint off to let the wood grain show through.
- Learn decorative kitchen painting techniques. You can apply the same techniques you may have used in other areas of your home to your kitchen. Think color washing, ragging or glazing.
Giving your kitchen a new look is a simple as using some tried-and-true kitchen painting ideas. Repainting your walls and adding a fresh paint technique to your cabinets may be all you need to achieve the change you desire.
