Best Paint for Kitchens & Cabinets

My kitchen is certainly the busiest room in the house. And as such, I made sure to paint it with specialist kitchen paint.

The paint is much easier to wipe down and protects against stains, dirt and mildew. Not to mention, the little pot that was leftover is perfect to touch up the odd chip or scuff!


Exceptionally robust grease resistant paint.

This paint has been the ‘go-to’ choice for many people I know that have repainted their kitchens.

Its greaseproof formulation will stand up to every day cooking stains and it is washable without fading the colour.

It does require two coats with either a brush or a roller and it is advisable to leave at least 5 hours between coats.

It will keep even the busiest kitchen looking great for years!

It is available in 8 different colours but keep an eye out for the nutmeg white. To my mind it is the best of the bunch and a colour that is very difficult to find with other brands.
