Maybe you’re considering making an extreme makeover to your eating room so…
Decorate the heart of your home in five easy steps with us!
First, clean the walls
Kitchen walls and surfaces are often greasy. Before you start painting, it’s important to clean all surfaces thoroughly to ensure that you get a good finish. The best way to do this is to clean them down with soap or a strong detergent solution. Use warm water and thoroughly rinse off all residue before allowing the surfaces to dry.
Then, prepare the room.
Before starting to paint, cover the edges of any tiles, appliances, trim and worktops with masking tape. This will help you to create a clean, crisp edge to the painted surface. It’s best to also cover worktops, appliances and the floor with a plastic sheet to catch any drips.
Now, start from the top. As with any room, start painting your kitchen from the ceiling down, so that any paint drips don’t fall onto freshly painted surfaces. For ceilings and walls, use a kitchen paint as these are hard-wearing and designed to be wiped down easily. A standard vinyl paint can be used on ceilings as they don’t need to be washed as regularly. You may find it easier to paint smaller surface areas and edges with a brush rather than a roller.
Now, paint cabinet doors!
Yes! That’s a great Idea and also we show you how to do it in other of our videos!

Finally, finish by painting all woodwork. Paint from top to bottom, starting with the windows –we suggest to begin painting in the morning so that they have a full day to dry before they need to be closed in the evening-
And next, paint the door, door frame and architrave, followed by the skirting. By painting the skirting last, there is less risk of your brush becoming contaminated by dirt or dust.
The last step should be to clean it all! Once everything is dry and clean, you will spend more time in your brand new kitchen with some dessert to celebrate!
