The kitchen is an inner part of your home that is also one of the most abused places. It’s where all the delicious foods are made to fill the nutrient requirements of your family. But more than that, it’s the busiest place in your home and probably the only one with so much activity on a daily basis.

While the traffic inside the kitchen is very high, it significantly affects the whole space, occasionally stains and bruises may occur on the walls, wood, and the cabinet door. Some kitchens are spacier than the dining space and require extra care.

Painting the kitchen is one of the hardest things but is a must to keep the house running. Healthier foods come from a healthy kitchen. As much as we like to admit, the right color for your kitchen has the most impact on its health.

So much tension over the kitchen space, yet there’s always the expert guy telling you about the hacks to keep your kitchen tidy and comfortable. With that in mind, let’s hear 7 pro tips about how to prep before painting your kitchen room.

How To Prep Before Painting Your Kitchen Room

Get A Proper Planning

Painting Your Kitchen Room in dublin

The kitchen painting job is a tough nut to crack as the working area is limited due to the nature of its space. Since the painting happens inside a compact placement, most probably you will lose access to your kitchen for a couple of hours.

That’s why it is important to properly plan your schedule before you spray paint on your kitchen walls. Because you can tolerate a tasteless kitchen for a day. but not your empty stomach.

So, the best course of action would be careful preparation before your call the experts to start painting your kitchen.

Proper planning not only helps ease your troubles but also relieves your house members. Also, you will be able to get steady working progress with less tension and more efficiency. It is a good move to save additional expenses if nothing goes wrong.

 

Empty The Kitchen Space Of Troubles

It’s very common for a kitchen to have a lot of objects that could unexpectedly poke your knees or scratch your toes. Better to clean up the kitchen before painting. Especially, you must remove anything with a sharp tip like knives from the kitchen.

Also, turn the gas off and unplug any electrical appliances beforehand. Don’t forget to put away the new carpet from the kitchen floor, though expert painters could take care of it.

Dissemble Cabinet door

It’s alright if you leave the cabinet door intact but we always see that makes a sloppy job at the end. It’s not worth using cabinet paint when it’s attached to the shelves as most surfaces will leave paint drips unevenly.

So, detach the cabinet door before painting, use proper sanding to remove the old paint and wood grain. Then just lay down the cabinet door on papers. This way the oil paint will properly spread on the wood.

No need to worry about the metal joints as the painter would cover them with masking tape or painter’s tape before painting the kitchen cabinets.

Choose What To And What Not To Paint

Many parts of your kitchen may not need new colors soon enough. For example, the porcelain basin, kitchen counter, microwave shelter, etc already have colors and don’t need anything new.

Unlike the cabinet paint, the paint on these parts of your kitchen almost lasts forever. So, you need to carefully plan the things required for new paint and whatnot. Especially, most of the fixtures are as good as they are.

Don’t Go For Cheap Painting Job

Before you settle in for a paint job for your kitchen, remember to hire experts who know about this very well.

Quality finish will score you long-lasting durability of the paint. As the kitchen is a place to be used frequently, the higher amount of traffic means rapid degradation of the surroundings. So, painting the kitchen requires more concentration to apply the paints perfectly all over the place.

Cheap paint jobs will only give you trouble while a good finish will last for years before repainting. Painting In Colour is professional enough to bring back the beauty of your kitchen beyond your expectations.

Patience Means Perfection

This is a quick reminder, don’t rush your paint job ever. Painting is technically a systematic process that needs to be executed perfectly. If there’s need two coats of paint after 2 hours, it needs to be done like that.

Most importantly, any rush in the job completely ruins it. You can’t skip between the process to hasten the job only to fail miserably at the end.

For example, the drywall needs proper sanding, then some caulk and primer. Skipping either the sanding or the primer would make the paints peel off within the next hours after the job finishing.

But, if you paint it following the manual, it’s gonna last longer. Also, you need to give time to cure the paint as well. There’s a lot to do like prep walls, kitchen cupboards, oak cabinets, etc. All of these take a lot more patience than just the walls.

Remember, kitchen paint needs a lot more time to cure properly. Rushing will not give a good finish in this case. Also, be prepared to leave your kitchen alone for a week most to let the paint settle for good.

Use A Balanced Color, Don’t Splash Random

Before you grab the paint roller over the kitchen walls, remember to have a specific color setup. It’s common for people to try out different shades for experiments but that only makes the job more complicated.

A kitchen needs to look tidy to set the mood for the cook. Too many colors in all directions make it look disorganized and messy. Not recommended at all.

So, to preserve the kitchen aesthetics, try to make a balance between three shades of colors, not more. That would be the perfect painted kitchen for you.

Conclusion

That is all it takes to prepare for having a great kitchen painted to fulfill your desires. Hopefully, you won’t face any trouble after performing these easy preps for your kitchen.

We can't say enough great things about this painting company! They were so professional and friendly. I loved the way they took our vision for a family room, made it come true - painting ceilings/walls along with trimming out an area in their home that was perfect for us. We will definitely hire them again when we need more work done down here on premise or even just around town where you're not sure who does good quality paint job these days...

Robert and his team from Painting in Colour is a great company to work with! They painted the exterior of our house and did an amazing job. The price was affordable, they arrived on time every morning for their job which made us happy as well because it gave them more time if needed due rescheduling or other complications that can occur at times like these (life). I would definitely recommend Painting In Colour again -they really went above what we expected from them by being so dependable!
