Painting Tips For Falling (Back) In Love With Your Arlington, VA Kitchen
Between stumbling in for a morning cup of coffee to sneaking in for a late night snack, odds are that you and your family spend a lot of time in your kitchen. It truly is the heart of your home and ideally, each time you flip on the light you should feel the love… except when you do not anymore. From painting kitchen cabinets to overall kitchen remodeling, sometimes you and your kitchen need to get back to the basics and figure out what is working and what is not.
The paint color experts in our design center have put together a list of painting ideas from quick fixes to big projects, all of which will help you fall back in love with your kitchen.
Start With A Blank Canvas
Before you even think about doing anything drastic, you need to clear your kitchen of all the items that you have accumulated over the years. Put away any unnecessary small appliances and decor and think about how your kitchen functions best. What do you love? What needs to change? Starting from scratch is sometimes the only way to figure out what you need to do to move forward.
What colors and fabrics are you drawn to in magazines or at home decor boutiques? Use these as a move toward new painting ideas for your kitchen. If, for example, turquoise always brightens your mood, use it as an interior paint accent wall or in your hand towels.
Consider New Paint Colors
Sometimes the best place to start is by repainting your walls with a new paint color that compliments your existing tile, cabinets and woodwork. If you are struggling with what color to choose, get in touch with our paint color consultant who can help you tie it all together.
Wallpaper Accent Wall
Many kitchens feature dated, floral wallpaper that can be a bit of a yawn, but today’s modern wallpaper can add needed brightness and new life to your Washington, DC kitchen. From contemporary florals to bold graphic prints, the texture of wallpaper can pull the woodwork, paint color and tile in your kitchen together in harmony.
Painting Kitchen Cabinets
It may be time to spring for an overall kitchen remodel by painting or even replacing your existing cabinetry, especially if your older cabinets are saggy or showing damage. The cost behind this can be considerable, but refinishing cabinets that are in good condition can offset this considerably. Not only that, but investing in your kitchen is one of the surest ways to increase the resale value of your Arlington, VA home.Summer is a great time to do indoor kitchen projects, because you have the option of using your grill and taking your cooking outside. Our color experts and painters would love to tackle your kitchen, and give you a space that takes your breath away even before you have had your morning coffee.
