Evening all…this week I call it quits for the 2015 Garden renovation & move back to the next room project…the kitchen, & was hoping for some pointers on the paint front please.
What I have now:
a reasonable wall finish in a gooseberry green Matt Dulux Diamond point finish
a fairly poor (but relatively new) ceiling plaster finish painted in Dulux Lumitec Matt
Wall shelving unit & rad. cover painted in a silk Hessian Dulux paint, also not the best
What I intend to do:
Presonnett joint filler all walls & ceilings, already half done, rest next week
Oil U/C & Spachtel Kodrin the wall units & rad cover then finish with a suitable paint
Then paint walls/ceiling with a suitable paint
It’s a fairly hard working kitchen rather than a show case & so hoping get not only a first class flat paint finish but also something hard wearing & ideally wipe-able
Looking for advice please on best possible paints to use on the walls / ceiling but also on the units.
Have used Matt in Motion & Eco with very happy results in three other rooms. Have no problem continuing with either of those but just keen as always to get it right first time. Not bothered about budget & have all the tools.
That said I was also wandering if the units would be better sprayed than brushed or roller-ed? Read lots of the articles on kitchen unit repainting & a bit of me would like to dip a toe but only if it’s worth it.
I have a compressor & car grade spray guns. Not entirely sure if that’s the right stuff & again very happy for advice on that.
Many thanks in advance for any help
