Faux painting techniques can add texture and dimension, as well as detail to your walls. These techniques work especially well in the kitchen. Faux techniques are affordable options that do not require you to hire a professional. Some popular faux painting techniques for the kitchen include stenciling, color washing and sponging.
Go for shiny surface finishes. These will reflect light and distribute it all around the room, making it feel much larger than it actually is. Opt for shiny splash backs, counter tops and high gloss cupboard doors and shelving. When choosing your flooring, whether it is tiles, wood or patterned, make sure it is laid length-ways down the kitchen. This will draw the eye and elongate the room. If you lay it sideways, the eye will naturally be drawn sideways and it will make the room feel much shorter and smaller.
