This can be a long, tedious process, but the results are worth it. Using the tape to create different sized "tiles," you can mimic a number of different materials, from glass to stone. If you`d like to incorporate a bunch of colors into your backsplash, this technique is the way to go.

Paints come in a number of finishes, from flat to high-gloss. The general rule of thumb is the more matte the finish, the harder it is to clean. If a finish is glossy, it tends to be more "scrubbable."

Once the primer is dry, paint a 2- to 3-inch cut-in line on the ceiling using a paintbrush. Make sure to start painting the ceiling with your roller while the cut-in line is still wet to avoid having a visible line. Then, make a zigzag pattern with your roller and go over that with straight strokes to even out the paint. Let the first coat dry and then start the same process over again for a second coat.

Priming will ensure your chairs have a beautiful, clean finish. Once the primer is completely dry, you can begin painting your chairs. Remember to go with the grain of the wood and use consistent strokes with your paintbrush or roller. Let the paint dry in-between coats, and make sure to seal the chair with a layer of polyurethane. This final step will protect your chairs from inevitable kitchen spills and general wear and tear, and it will also give them a glossy, even finish.

Since kitchens are such a busy part of a home and often need extra cleaning, a satin or semi-gloss finish is the best options. Satin and eggshell finishes are commonly believed to be the same, but in fact, satin is a bit shinier. Satin finishes are easy to clean and good at standing up to mildew, stains and dirt.

Before you begin painting, make sure to buy a paint roller with an extension handle so you can easily reach the ceiling without standing on a ladder. If your ceiling is textured, you‵ll want to use a thick-nap roller to ensure you can completely cover the irregularities in the surface.

If you want to add some drama to your walls without relying on tiles, try stenciling a design, favorite quote, food-related words, or a beloved family recipe on your backsplash.

Latex paint is the more popular option for kitchen walls and it comes in a few different finishes.
