For example, what will be hard-wearing, easy to clean, and won’t stain? How you want your kitchen to feel tends to be quite different from the rest of the house. Living rooms should be cosy and comfortable, bathrooms should feel clean, bedrooms ought to be a relaxing or sensuous space. But what about interior paint for your kitchen? Well, given the amount of equipment you need to get into a kitchen from pressure cookers to coffee machines, most people opt for something light and airy, designed to make the room as big and spacious as possible.
What colors work well in a kitchen?
What colors work best in the kitchen? Whether you own your house, or live in the apartment of your dreams, the same rules apply.

How to get a professional finish
Most professional decorators will tell you that the secret to good decoration and interior painting lies in the preparation. The first thing is cleaning. Boy, is that a pain. But cleaning prior to interior painting is essential. And if you’re planning to repaint your kitchen, then there’s a very likely chance that you have a lot of cleaning to do.
