THE ADVANTAGES OF PAINTS FOR WOODEN KITCHEN FURNITURE
Paints for wooden kitchen furniture have many advantages :
They are economical. You will be able to give your wooden furniture a new lease of life without having to undertake a lengthy renovation of your wooden kitchen.
They opacify the wood. They mask the natural grain of the wood. Therefore, paints for wooden furniture will help you to hide the slight defects of your furniture.
WHICH PAINT SHOULD I USE TO REPAINT A WOODEN KITCHEN UNIT ?
TO PAINT A WOODEN KITCHEN UNIT, CHOOSE THE RIGHT COLOUR
First of all, the colour of your wood paint is important. If you wish to make a choice of colours that do not go out of fashion, we recommend neutral or light colours. For example, wooden kitchens painted in grey are very popular.
Within the Anova Wood range, you will find the Interior Wood Paint PBI900. It is available in bright or lighter shades. Would you like to opt for white ? White Interior Wood Paint BLI900 is the perfect choice. It is a sure value for a painted wooden kitchen. You can also repaint a wooden kitchen by combining two colours to bring a more modern look to your room.
CHOOSE THE RENDERING OF THE PAINT FOR WOODEN FURNITURE
You also need to choose the finish of your wood furniture paint: matt, satin, gloss... In general, the glossier the paint, the more it tends to enlarge the room by reflecting the light. To avoid problems with a glossy finish, make sure you prepare your wooden kitchen furniture well to reduce imperfections and make the furniture smooth.
TO STRENGTHEN THE PROTECTION OF WOODEN KITCHEN FURNITURE WITH WOOD VARNISH
We advise you to choose a washable wood kitchen furniture paint. This is because a kitchen is a place where stains or water splashes will frequently occur. It is therefore important to be able to clean your painted wooden furniture easily.
All the wood paints in the Anova Bois range are washable. However, if you want to make cleaning even easier, you can apply a wood varnish such as Furniture Varnish VM500 after the wood paint. In addition to making cleaning easier, protection against water and stains will be reinforced. This combination of products is very common on furniture that is highly exposed to aggression, such as wooden kitchen furniture.
PAINT YOUR WOODEN KITCHEN FURNITURE IN A FEW STEPS
PREPARE YOUR WOODEN KITCHEN FURNITURE
Before you start repainting the wooden furniture in a kitchen, you must first prepare it. If your furniture is varnished or waxed, sand it to remove all traces of wax or varnish. To repaint your wooden kitchen, the furniture must be rough, with no traces of old finish.
APPLY AN UNDERCOAT
To paint your wooden kitchen furniture, in some cases it is advisable to apply an undercoat to prepare the wood to receive the product. This is the case for tannic woods (oak, chestnut...) and exotic woods (ipe, iroko...) for which we recommend applying Anti-Tanins Primer PAT400 as an undercoat.
