Cooking is a beautiful mess for the cook, but for someone who’s assigned to clean the kitchen after all the cooking, it is just a mess. We all have that friend™ who can’t cook or chop so they’re assigned with the clean-up. I’m that friend.

Whenever my friends make pasta or bake chocolate cupcakes, I see how they carelessly splatter tomato sauce or spill chocolate ganache on the kitchen counters and cabinets. I shudder to think that this is what I have to clean up later on. Don’t even get me started on greasy oil stains.

Nobody wants a dull and dirty kitchen. That’s why painting choices are not just a matter of aesthetics or how good they would look. You also have to be practical. You don’t have to choose what to prioritize because you can get a durable and easy-to-clean paint with an attractive finish.

Have your cake and eat it too by painting your kitchen cabinets and shelves with Boysen Automotive Lacquer,  a lacquer-type paint that is used to achieve a duco finish, which is a high gloss and long-wearing finish.

Duco Finish for Kitchen Cabinets and Shelves

You might be curious—why should I get the duco finish for my kitchen cabinets and shelves?

Duco finish is synonymous to a high gloss finish. Experts will always tell you to choose a glossy finish for your kitchen because stains on kitchen surfaces with a flat finish are difficult to clean, and too much scrubbing or cleaning would leave burnish marks or scratch marks on the finish. It’s important to choose a paint that considers the special cleaning needs of the kitchen. Duco finish stands up to frequent cleaning. This finish is perfect for busy areas like kitchens as these spaces are no longer just places to cook meals or wash dishes, these also work as places where family and friends can gather.

Besides, painting your kitchen cabinets with duco finish can work wonders. You’d be amazed at how a high gloss finish can transform your kitchen interiors. It will lend an attractive finish to your kitchen cabinets and could vastly improve the look of your kitchen.

Painting Ideas

Kitchens with open shelves give an airy and uncluttered feel but they are also prone to dirt and dust build-up. Choose for closed cabinets and paint them as well as the shelves with Boysen Automotive Lacquer to maintain a kitchen that looks spotless and squeaky-clean.
