Take a look at all the places where paint can be used. You will be surprised what a simple coat of paint can do for the look of your kitchen.

Hardware

Yes, you can update your kitchen hardware with paint. Just make sure to choose a metallic spray paint that is specifically designed for metal. Clean and lightly sand your kitchen hardware before you start painting. Then just follow the simple instructions on the can and let dry.

Cabinets

We have all heard it but it cannot be emphasized enough, a fresh coat of paint can make kitchen cabinets feel brand new. Choose neutral colors of paint like white, brown or black so that your cabinets will not feel outdated again in a few years. Just make sure you do the proper preparation before you start painting so that your new finish will last for years.

Countertops

If you are living with old laminate countertops, why not paint them to look like granite? There are thousands of people who have done this with great success and then posted their results online. There are an endless amount of techniques you can use to get this look. So find someone who has made the look you are going for and then find out how they did it. If you do it right, no one will be able to tell that your new granite countertops are actually paint.

Appliances

If you have old mismatched appliances, make them feel like a new set with appliance spray paint. There are plenty of colors to choose from, so you can get any look you want. Just make sure you follow the instructions provided for you carefully so you get a professional look.

Lighting

Finally, paint that ugly fake gold lighting fixture to make it look completely up to date. Use the same metallic spray paint that you used on your hardware and turn a gold lighting fixture into a brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze one. Simply follow the instructions on the can and make sure to protect the electrical work on the piece.

As you can see, you can create an entirely new look for your kitchen with nothing more than paint. There is no need for demolition, new cabinetry or expensive new appliances. Just pull out that can of latex paint or spray paint and make your dream kitchen come to life. Just make sure to open a window…
