Kitchens are the heart of the home in most houses; a place to spend time together with family and friends. But of course kitchens face a lot of wear and tear – food stains, dents, oil stains… it’s endless. So refreshing your kitchen and adding a touch of character with a splash of paint is just what it may need!

Paint is a great way to customize any room at a low price; it also can be completely personal to you. You can create different finishes, styles, patterns and of course colours!

A popular trend at the moment is adding a feature wall. This doesn’t have to be a picture or a bold print, but simply different coloured paint or a darker, more intense version of the colour you’re already using.  This adds a pop to your kitchen and can really refresh an entire room up!

Things to think about when deciding how to inject character into your kitchen with a fresh splash of paint is of course firstly choosing a colour and a paint that is suitable. White paint is perfect for making a room look fresh, clean and modern but some painted walls are harder to clean especially if it’s a matt finish.  Because your kitchen is a high traffic area you need to ensure the paint you choose is hard wearing.

As well as painting your walls recycling your furniture can be the perfect way to spice up your kitchen at an affordable cost. Painting items can really freshen up a room and also add your personality. So instead of buying new pieces, just jazz up the ones you already have!
