Painting the kitchen will help bring back a much-needed glow. In some ways, painting the kitchen is an easier project than painting bedrooms or living rooms because the amount of wall space tends to be limited. Most of the wall space of a kitchen is dominated by floor cabinets, wall cabinets. For an unfurnished kitchen, you should paint the walls with a roller or paint sprayer. You should always use a brush for window and door trim. For a furnished kitchen, you should use a wide wall-width roller and a brush for small strips such as cabinets. If you do it right, the decoration method of your kitchen will also be perfect.
Tools and Materials You Will Need:
-Interior acrylic-latex paint
-2 1/2-inch paint brush
– Roll frame and roll cover
-Paint tray and liner
– Canvas drop cloth
-TSP (tri-sodium phosphate)
-Random orbital sander and shifting grits sandpaper
Dust mask or gas mask
-Soft, clean cotton cloths
1- Choose a Kitchen Paint Color
You will want to choose your kitchen paint colors wisely and carefully. The best kitchen colors tend to adapt to the idea of food and food as they have high visual impact.
2- Choose the Best Paint Coating
You should think of paint finishes like the spectrum of color in a paint fan. However, in this case, the spectrum is not colors but shades of luminosity. Matte (flat, non-glossy) on one end and high shine (very glossy, you can almost see your face) at the other. What is the best paint for the kitchen? Satin and semi-sheen tend to be favorites, but matte is rarely recommended because it is difficult to clean and moisture beads can cause streaks.
3- Determine the Area to be Painted
Take square shots of your walls to find out how much paint you will buy. Often, space in a new construction kitchen will be devoid of everything except drywall. You can calculate the square image of each wall by multiplying the room height by the room length. Then add up all the walls to get the sum.
4- Clean All Surfaces To Be Painted
If you haven’t dealt with an empty room with fresh drywall, kitchen walls need a lot of cleaning. You can clean the areas on and around the oven and countertops with warm water and TSP (tri-sodium phosphate). Door trim can also often benefit from TSP cleaning. You can clean dust, cobwebs and other floors on the upper parts of the baseboards with a vacuum and a damp cloth.
5- Mask and Cover
Masking and covering will not be required for the empty room without the finished floor. Paint droplets on the sub floor will then be covered with the floor covering. If you are using a paint sprayer, make sure to drag the plastic onto the doors into adjacent rooms to prevent the paint mist from being carried over. Before painting the walls for the finished room, you must apply masking tape to the coating. You should lay a canvas drip cloth on the floor. You should cover large objects such as cabinets, appliances and tables with plastic wrap or masking film.
6- Apply Primer
If a surface has already been painted and the paint is in good clean condition, priming will not be required. Unpainted drywall, bare wood and poorly painted surfaces should be primed. You should apply the primer to large areas with a roller and small enough to get the width of the roller with a brush.
7- Roll Large Areas
You must determine which areas are large enough to accommodate the roller. Pour a small amount of paint into the tray, wet the roller cover, then roll the excess well. You should roll these large areas of the wall in a W pattern that covers sections of about 4 feet x 4 feet. You should bring the roller to about an inch or two of the painter’s tape.
8- Paint Brush
You should wait for the paint to dry for about two hours. Dip the paint brush in the paint can and manually paint the areas that the roller cannot reach. You should avoid drips by applying minimal paint and re-brushing. Areas that were painted more than a few minutes ago will likely be filmed anyway. Therefore, limit re-brushing only to areas that have been recently painted.
9- Apply Additional Coats
Paint colors will be applied in two or even three layers, deepening and reaching their full potential. You should let the paint dry for at least a few hours, then you should roll the paint again and brush it again.
