Yes, we did say the word…. Christmas! With the clocks changing and a chill in the air, it’s just around the corner! So, if you are going to be gearing up for a big family dinner, then perhaps now is a good time to give your kitchen a refresh before the madness really begins!

As we know the kitchen is always the hub of activity at this time, so its good to choose a paint colour that is warm and inviting. Whilst many people have traditionally selected neutral colours for their kitchen, a bold colour such as a deep red or emerald green can make a real difference in creating a fresh new look.

As well as thinking about the colour, the type of paint you choose will make a difference. As the kitchen is a place of high humidity and an area where stains and marks are likely, having a paint that is resistant to moisture, steam and grease is necessary. We take a look at some of the paints available for you to consider:

Dulux Kitchen + Matt paint is a tough paint, making it a good option. Its grease proof formulation helps protect your walls and it is washable without any colour fade.

Crown Kitchen & Bathroom Mid Sheen comes with added mouldguard. Its tough, durable finish allows for frequent washing. It is also quick drying with a low odour.

Johnstone’s Kitchen & Bathroom paint has been specially formulated to provide durable protection in areas of high condensation. It dries to a subtle mid sheen finish that resists moisture, stains and grease.

Berger Kitchen and Bathroom Mid Sheen paint keeps your walls fresh for longer. The special formulation is resistant to moisture, steam and grease. It can also be applied to wood and primed metal to match-in the whole room!
