20 Best Paint Colors for Kitchens 2018
Paint colors for kitchens can be dramatic or subtle to express your personality. An all white kitchen can be budget friendly and still interesting. Go for carerra marble countertops to add pattern to an all white room and they are great for baking. Bring in texture with paneled cabinets, a range hood, or a coffered ceiling. White appliances are less expensive and they’ll blend right into the space. Add luxurious elements with a crystal chandelier or add glass to a few of your cabinets for display space.
Bring in color through the use of materials. Change up your kitchen cabinets by leaving half of them oak and painting the upper cabinets black or white. Pull out colors from the stone countertops for wall color and accessory inspiration. Light to medium tone counters will blend in for a light and airy kitchen and will have mass appeal when you go to sell your home.
Colors in kitchen design can create different moods. A kitchen can be a warm place to gather. Stick with mahogany or cherry wood tones for a traditional or old world feel. Balance the darker cabinets with lighter countertops and a medium floor wood tone. Darker cabinets will feel more expensive and luxurious and will make the room feel high end.
You can use a variety of cabinet colors in the same kitchen. Pair a painted island with wood tone cabinets or try the reverse for a more unusual look. Paint the cabinetry over the stove, or your range hood a different color so it becomes a focal point. Try green paint for a Spanish kitchen or black accents for a more modern room.
Make your existing kitchen cupboards work for you. If you have a small kitchen try a monochromatic palette where the cupboards are the same tone as the walls. For a farmhouse feel distress the cabinets over blue or gray paint. Top it off with more modern stone counters and accessorize with large iron hinges.
