5 Signs It’s Time To Rethink Kitchen Painting

Sign 1: You Haven’t Repainted in More Than 5 Years

  • Food stains
  • Grease marks/stains
  • Strong food odours
  • Handprints and scuff marks
  • Heat-affected areas
  • Paint peeling/cracking




Sign 2: Your Kitchen Painting Is All One Colour

Ideally, having a second, neutral colour can highlight the best parts of the room and help hide some flaws.

For a unique style that is all you, try mixing some textures and patterns like stripes. Click here for our guide on painting stripes!


Sign 3: You Don’t Feel Happy In Your Kitchen

It’s your home, you should enjoy it! If you are finding yourself unhappy, or just feeling blah about your kitchen decorating, try painting. A fresh coat of paint helps to reinvigorate your space, even if the colour isn’t all that different.


Sign 4: You Feel Embarrassed To Invite People Over For Dinner

Painting kitchen cabinets alone can make a stunning difference. Interior decorating trends are moving more towards open concept kitchens and dining rooms, while makes a fresh, clean, and beautiful kitchen even more important for making a good impression on your guests.

If your new appliances don’t match old paint, a paint update can make your kitchen look brand new.

Sign 5: Your Kitchen Doesn’t Fit Your Life



You are classy and elegant, but your kitchen is too colourful. No matter how much you used to love it, it just doesn’t suit you anymore. You’ve grown up. Now is the time for your kitchen to grow up too and look more sophisticated to match your life.

Refreshing your kitchen can bring the fun back into the most visible room in your house. Your home should reflect you, and your own kitchen decorating ideas. A new paint colour, or adding a new element like stripes, can give your home a fresh look that speaks to you.
