Painting Kitchen Prep To Consider in Denver Metro, CO.
You should be well aware of the importance of keeping up the appearance of your kitchen — and a lot of this will come down to how the walls look, in terms of how well they have been painted.
The good thing to know is that once your walls have been properly painted, it’s not something you have to put much thought into for a while — a good painting will last you a number of years and until that point, you can enjoy the work that went into getting your kitchen walls painted.
The thing that you should know about painting your kitchen is that when you are getting ready to paint, there are some prep steps that you should think about incorporating that when you do them well will extend the life of your painting project.
Let’s have a look at some painting kitchen prep that you might want to consider in Denver Metro, CO.
1. Removing Furniture
One thing that people will often overlook when they’re thinking about how to best paint their kitchen is the act of fully removing or at least partially removing the furniture from the room.
There are many benefits to removing furniture from the room in which you are going to be painting, chiefly being that you are not going to have the furniture in the way which will help to make for a faster painting process, and you are eliminating entirely the possibility that you will get paint on your furniture.
2. Clean The Surfaces
The kitchen walls that you are going to be painting will need to be thoroughly cleaned before you start — and there are two levels of cleaning that you’re going to have to do here is that it’s your kitchen.
One is your basic removal of dust and the like from the surface, which should be pretty much your first step when you’re looking to get any surface ready for a good painting.
However, when you’re working in the kitchen you also have to be mindful of the fact that a whole lot of cooking might be going on in there, and as such you might be dealing with some grease on the surfaces (especially those close to where the stovetop is) and that needs another kind of cleaning — and once you have finished cleaning off the grease, you will, of course, need to allow time for the surfaces to fully dry.
3. Pick Out A Good Color (Or Colors)
An often neglected step in preparing to paint your kitchen is having available the color or colors that you’re going to be using for painting.
Though many might imagine that all you’re going to have to do is to head into a paint store and pick a color or colors based on paint strips and how good they look, the truth is that you ultimately bring home a few small samples of paint to paint little areas of space in the room to see how the colors are going to look in different lighting conditions.
Only then are you going to really know what the best color or colors will be for your kitchen — and who knows if you may change your mind about what is going to look best ten years down the road?
4. Be Prepared To Prime
Lastly, you need to be prepared to prime the surfaces that are going to be painted and the reasons for this are simple – one being that you will want the surfaces being painted to be as smooth as possible, and applying primer is going to help you with that endeavor.
The second reason that it’s good to prime before you paint is that applying a good coat of primer before you paint will get you a surface that is more adhesive than one that lacks the primer.
