Take a simple kitchen: maybe it’s an awkward space, lacking natural light, or just requires a little something extra. With a few bold stripes of color painted across kitchen walls and cabinets, that simple kitchen is instantly transformed.

Lately, we’ve been focused on color zoning with paint seen in the bedroom, on fabric, in the children’s room, and now, in the kitchen. But a high functioning, high-traffic kitchen requires a durable paint resource. Canadian-based DIYers are in luck with Sico’s latest innovation: Sico Evolution® Interior Paint with an unprecedented DurabiliT™ technology providing a protective shield that is ulta-washable and ultra-scrubbable (no matter what the finish). The paint and primer is VOC-free and is available directly from Sico.
