Colour may also influence a person’s mental or physical state. So, a home owner must design their kitchen with colours that uplifts their mood to increase their productivity and spark ingenuity. Colours of a room are also a direct reflection of one’s personality. This is why it’s so important to choose colours wisely when it comes to decorating your kitchen.

The lacquer finish of the kitchen is what makes it possible for such a vast variety of colours to be used on. Lacquer is a solvent-based product that creates a synthetic coating on surfaces, causing it to form a high gloss sheen. This kind of finish looks great in any home both traditional and contemporary.
Lacquer can come in basically two types, that is, gloss and matte. The processes to achieve these finishes require a great deal of time and effort. A matte lacquer finish basically involves a basic epoxy layer and then a priming after which it goes through buffing. This process is repeated a second time before two coats of paint is added. Once the paint dries, it goes through another round of buffing after which a layer of lacquer is applied. It then goes through another round of buffing and then a final layer of polishing is done. To attain a gloss lacquer finish, additional steps to the matte lacquer is required where a layer of extra gloss is applied and then once dried, it goes through water buffing. Then it goes through a process of compound buffing and then wool buffing. This involves more time to get the desired result.
Furniture pieces like kitchen cabinetry finished with lacquer wear well, resists heat discoloration, water spills, oils, dilute acids, and alcohol. The lacquer finish also resists cracking due to heat modulation or wood shrinkage. Lacquer also doesn’t oxidize and become crumbly or brittle over time as is the case with many oil based products. These factors lend lacquer finishes exceptionally good life spans, thereby allowing them to remain attractive and serviceable for longer than many other treatments.
