When winter hits, you might succumb to what some call “cabin fever.” The less admirable nooks and crannies of your home become more noticeable, or you begin to take stock of some of the bigger home projects that you’ve been thinking about. Is a kitchen remodel one of those?
We’ve talked about what kinds of paints you should consider when you’re repainting your home but what kinds of paints do you use on things like cabinets? Do the same rules apply? We’re here to say yes, yes they do.
When you’re looking to renovate your kitchen, take a holistic look at what the project might entail. You’re looking at protecting walls and surfaces from things like food and water. You’re looking at preparing your cabinets to handle the traffic, bumps and scrapes from little helpers and pots and pans. Finally, you’re looking for ways to include your own personal touches in your kitchen.
Prepare and Protect
Before you even begin this project, there are several things you should consider. Are you using quality products that will ensure a clean look? Are you allowing yourself enough time for the project? Have you prepped the area to protect other surfaces?
We work with the highest-quality brands and best-looking palettes to make sure we’re achieving the look of your dreams. More examples of our work can be found here.
When you begin painting your cabinets, you want to make sure you’re using a paint with at least a satin finish to ensure you have the wipeability and protection you need. When food splatters or condensation covers surfaces, we want you to continue cooking knowing your hard work is going to live as long as the product says it will.
Another layer of protection comes in painting the inside of your cabinets. Whether you’re having guests over or serving brunch on a lazy Saturday afternoon, constant traffic from plates and cups will wear down a surface or even leave a stain. A clear finish on the interior of your cabinetry will offer protection and give it a cleaner look over time.
Our technicians are specially trained to handle more advanced projects, including repairing slightly damaged surfaces and breathing life back into a kitchen by selecting an entirely different color palette. Our more than decade’s worth of experience have transformed homes all across Northwest Arkansas. Examples of our work can be found here.
Every homeowner is different and the colors within your home should reflect your personality. Your kitchen is no different.
An island can easily be the centerpiece of your kitchen. However, it can also provide a whole new level of functionality and personality to your space. Better Homes and Gardens touches on a few of those functions. They also make note of how an accent island can bring out colors and materials used in your backsplash or cabinets. By taking advantage of this key design opportunity, you can easily add another layer of design to your home and instantly spark conversation.
Other ways to add personality to your kitchen include staining your cabinets instead of painting it. We also encourage you to focus in on details, like hardware associated with your cabinet handles or the type of tile you decide to use in your backsplash. Every inch of your kitchen is an opportunity to let your personality shine.
