Since I have the use of reason, my mom has always painted my kitchen with shades of orange or yellow. He likes the atmosphere is luminous and inspires warmth. While I prefer to dominate the white contrast with other colors, choosing colors for the kitchen and dining responds to different factors.
In a home environment, the colors convey feelings, emotions, and moods. There are colors that reflect joy, warm, and others are the opposite. Here, we present ideas to decide how to paint your kitchen, dining room and what items to use.
Paving the way
Before painting, the surface must be in good condition. The methods and materials used are different, depending on the surface, but you should always fill in the gaps and cracks to avoid imperfections. Then make sure it is clean and free from paint, dust and grease. Brushing and application of remover or a good sanding would be enough, but the paint will not stick as it should.

Colors for every situation

Therefore, it is best to choose neutral colors and clear, cream, beige, white or other light colors. In this way, will not saturate the view of those who are there.
