Give your kitchen a weekend makeover with paint

(NC)—Worn–out and tired cabinets, scuffed walls and an unsightly back splash. Does this remind you of your kitchen? If you haven't remodelled your kitchen in years, then the answer is probably a disheartened yes. But is it time for a complete kitchen renovation, or just a quick makeover?

The answer depends on your budget. The bad news is that a total kitchen renovation with new cabinets, countertops, flooring and backsplash can be very costly. The good news is that you can rejuvenate the look of your kitchen in a matter of days and with little investment by choosing to paint your cabinets, walls and backsplash in fresh new colours.

“If you don't have the money to buy new kitchen cabinets and like their current design, a little paint can instantly and dramatically change the look, not only of your cabinets, but your entire kitchen and as a result, increase the value of your home,” explained Dominique Pépin, Marketing Manager for Sico Paints and a Chairholder of the international colour forecaster Color Marketing Group.

Whether you want to lighten up dark cabinets or brighten them up with bold colours, paint can provide an instant makeover for almost all types of cabinets. For the best results it's imperative that you choose a super adherent primer and high performing paint to withstand every day use in the kitchen.

Thanks to the latest breakthrough paint specifically formulated for cabinets and furniture this job has become much easier for do it yourself homeowners and professionals alike.

Recently introduced by the Sico brand, this latest innovation features a unique formula that combines the best of both worlds: the durability of alkyd with the ease of use of water based paint to create a heavy–duty paint ideal for furniture and cabinets as well as ceramic wall tiles of your backsplash. Because of its alkyd emulsion formula, the Sico Furniture and cabinets paint offers remarkable resistance to repeat washing, yet delivers an ultra–smooth, marring–resistant finish.

“The excellent levelling that results from the application of this product provides an ultra–smooth finish that resists marring exceptionally well — a much appreciated characteristic, especially for those surfaces that see a lot of daily use, such as furniture, cabinets, doors, trim as well as walls in high traffic areas,” added Pépin.

Available in a wide range of colours to match any décor, you can create a brand new look for your kitchen in a matter of days instead of the months required for a complete overhaul. Thanks to the water–based formula, the waiting time between coats varies between 4 and 6 hours. So most painting projects can be completed in one day or over the weekend for an entire kitchen.

With your cabinets, backsplash and walls donning a fresh new look complete your kitchen transformation with the choice of the latest kitchen cabinet knob and handle accessories to help bring your kitchen into the 21st century.
