We’ve also curated a list of the trendiest green paint colours so you have a shortlist of green hues!

Considerations Before Buying Paint For Your Kitchen Project

Choosing the right paint for your kitchen walls isn’t easy as you need to take various factors into consideration:

  • Moisture resistant - kitchens are exposed to high levels of moisture and condensation when cooking, this is an important factor when choosing the right paint for your kitchen walls as the paint needs to stand-up to high levels of moisture.

  • Durable finish - it’s typical for food to splatter on walls during cooking, especially around the cooker and sink areas. In case of spills, it's crucial to opt for a paint that provides durability, allowing easy wiping or, if needed, scrubbing without compromising the colour or finish.

  • The look you are trying to achieve - if you are looking for a flat, non-shiny finish then you would be best opting for a matt finish. Alternatively, if you are looking for a higher-sheen level you may be best considering a satin or eggshell finish. This choice regularly comes down to personal preference.

  • Price - last but by no means least is price. This will be a key factor in your choice of paint. We do recommend you consider the longevity of your paint, alongside price, as a durable and scrubbable trade paint

may cost more initially however this will not need to be touched up as regularly as a cheaper, retail, non-durable paint.
