Kitchen Painting Mistakes To Avoid in Scappoose, OR

Kitchen Painting Mistakes To Avoid in Scappoose, OR.

In looking to paint your kitchen, you're going to want to be careful - there are many areas in the kitchen in which you need to take great care, and the kitchen has great significance in the life of just about everyone with a home in terms of food preparation and in some cases eating.

When you're looking to paint your kitchen, you may possibly make certain painting mistakes which will, unfortunately, cause a great amount of harm to your painting project and maybe even make the project take longer and cost a lot more.

However, many of these mistakes can be prevented if you learn about them in advance, as it were.

Let's look at and think about some kitchen painting mistakes to avoid in Scappoose, OR.

1. Using The Wrong Kind Of Paint

With as many kinds of paint as there are out there, you might be thinking that there's no way that you could get the wrong kind of paint for painting your kitchen, right?

The truth is that it will be wrong, as it were if you were to start painting your kitchen with a paint that is meant for the exterior of your home - and we don't just mean from the perspective that it is likely going to cost you a lot more than painting with an interior paint!

It's also going to be wrong in the sense that exterior paint has qualities that make sense for the exterior of your home - it protects against the sun to some extent and depending on what kind it is, the elements - but unless you're expecting epic snow showers in your kitchen, it's probably the wrong way to go.

Moreover, as it is the kitchen you understandably are going to need to clean your walls on occasion and as this is the case it is a good idea to make use of paint that is easier to clean, which is to say glossy paint.

2. Not Ventilating

It's rather unfortunate that one thing that people don't think about when they're painting their home is the process by which they are going to ventilate the area being painted - perhaps they think that with modern paints, this is no longer necessary.

Even with the most modern of paints that claim to be entirely free of volatile compounds, you still need to have some sort of ventilation system in place as the fumes, free of volatile compounds as they may be, still are rather strong and you will want to be able to get those strong smell out of the room.

The best way that you can ventilate your kitchen while you are painting is to have at least one window open and ideally a couple of doors so that you can have one way for air to get in and another way for the air to get out.

3. Not Cleaning

If you are going to paint your kitchen and you don't first clean the surfaces that are to be painted, you will find that ultimately your surfaces are not going to be well painted.

The reason for this to be the case is that putting paint on top of a dirty surface is not going to get your walls in the kitchen to look like you properly covered them - the paint will just look like dirty paint, and depending on how much you use your kitchen for cooking (and not so much bringing in takeout from a restaurant for example) you very well may have a good amount of grease on the walls as well... and if you think the paint on dust looks bad, you should see how it looks when you try to paint over a greasy wall.
