Paint yourself a whole new kitchen image  and add vital value to your home ….

Updated: May 30, 2023

As we have highlighted on various occasions recently here on this blog, one of the very best ways to add value, to your home for a ‘later on’ home move with an improved sale price - vital in these testing financial times of course  -  is to spruce up, rev-up and improve that all important kitchen of yours.

You can do this, of course, in a range of different ways… from a full re-design and re-fit of all your tops and cupboards - with all the bells and whistles you can afford, or you could cleverly and carefully perhaps, consider instead, a far less extravagant ‘wow factor’ kitchen improvement, using some carefully considered ‘painting tactics’.

These tactics, of course, can include good colour choices and painting of the kitchen walls, as well as the room’s woodwork fittings, such and skirtings and door frames  ..that’s a given! But, the really ‘clever’ added value, and money-earning, kitchen renovation ‘best-effect’ move, is to take on the challenge of giving a vital painted facelift and colour-ways change to those perhaps now rather worn and exhausted looking kitchen cupboards, thus avoiding an expensive, full-on costly units and cupboards replacement. 

look and style

The cupboards , of course, are at the very heart of the kitchen’s look and style, and, for sure, a major part of the whole ‘visual and style’ effect that you have in your kitchen at the moment. Change and revive these with a clever, well-chosen, well-delivered, budget-busting, stylish painted facelift …and you can really rev-up your kitchen to be more than it has been for a very long time! It can surely be more than you thought it could ever be! 

added value

Painting right -  and with style and confidence - means, hopefully, that a successful, ‘added value’ effect - second to none - can be achieved with a minimum spend. Get it right, and you’ll have a true winning home price ‘added value’ opportunity on your hands, which will be ready, willing and waiting to play a vital part in helping you make a ‘later on’ home move sale happen as and when it is needed when the difficult, testing financial outlook eases.

Key to success with these vital painting tactics is to make sure you get your hands on the right paint for your kitchen cabinets, in order to achieve that most important first move towards your kitchen’s total transformation. Those considerable experts at Real Homes - and Annie Collyer in particular -  have recently highlighted, online recently, some sound guidance and help on this vital ‘paint choice’ matter. A good read this ….and with much vital help and guidance not to be missed.

best choices

So, what might be the best paint type and colour choice for your kitchen’ revival? The options for colour and finish are extensive, that’s for sure. As the Real Homes team say… whether you're after gloss, satin or chalk paint; a neutral white, statement black or a contemporary colour,  perhaps take a look here… kitchen paint ideas …..and be wowed!….

dare to go

As they suggest - whether you fancy a barelythere Scandi-inspired soft grey or you dare to go for one of the season’s bold deep inky shades of colour, the right information is yours to help get you started and thinking all about what could surelybest transform your kitchen for that all important ‘added value’ facelift.


It is for sure exciting to choose a bold and effective colour for your kitchen re-vamp, but, as well as the colour choice, the texture of the finish can also be vital to achieve best overall effect . The top tip from the experts is to consider that paint choice very carefully…review a mid to soft sheen presentation offering perhaps - this can achieve just the right kind of more contemporary look - a better bet say the experts than going for anything too glossy.
