Always work in shaded areas during the hottest part of the day. If you are applying in hot, windy conditions or on porous surfaces, thin the first coat by up to 10% with water.

Kitchens

The kitchen is the heart and soul of your home. Bring fun and energy into your kitchen by adding colour to walls, trims and accessories.

Colour in your kitchen

Popular colours include reds, blues and deep neutrals such as charcoal. You may also wish to consider the light your kitchen receives – If it's a cold or dark kitchen, use warmer tones. If it's a warm kitchen with plenty of sunshine, go for the cooler tones.

Painting your Kitchen: Hints and Tips

Preparation: Remove any oil, grease or food stains in the kitchen with a damp sponge, some detergent and a little elbow grease! The surface you are going to paint must be clean and dry. If existing paint is peeling off the kitchen walls, you will need to remove it by stripping or scraping and then sanding smooth.

Paint selection: Kitchens need a tough, stain resistant paint that can withstand regular cleaning without leaving glossy patches.

Pascol Kitchen and Bathroom Semi Gloss paint has a scrubbable, easy–to–clean formula. It also protects against the growth of mould, mildew and fungus.

Pascol Kitchen and Bathroom Ceiling Paint has a durable, Eggshell finish that resists steam, moisture, mould, mildew and fungus. Both these Pascol paints are low odour so they are more gentle on your senses and better for you and your home environment.

Surface refresh: When painting a kitchen, don't limit yourself to just painting the walls. Depending on the type of cabinets, doors and trims, it's easy to reinvigorate their appearance using Pascol TRIM Water Based Enamel in Satin or Gloss.
