Kitchen Paint Ideas
Savory smells and sumptuous meals. Afternoon snacks and homework at the kitchen table. Whatever you use your kitchen for, the right kitchen paint colors can set the tone. Think of relaxed breakfasts in an ocean-blue nook with white trim. Or imagine whipping up a pot of pasta surrounded by cheery red-painted walls and tons of family. From energetic to tranquil, use this guide to find the perfect color to bring your kitchen dreams to life.
Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets
A coat of paint for your cabinets can refresh your whole kitchen. Make a bold statement with cherry red cabinets, or go sleek and modern with a layer of glossy black paint. Warm tones like reds and subtle golds help lift your spirits and make your guests feel welcome. They also excite the appetite. Complement buttery off-white walls with rich reddish brown tones. It creates an inviting earthy ambiance perfect for entertaining. Sip a morning cup of coffee among slate-blue cabinets and sandy beige walls and soak in the calming, coastal vibe. Or bask in contemporary chic with charcoal grey cabinets over a black countertop.
Harmonize Your Cabinets and Countertops
Contrast your black counters with painted cabinets to keep your kitchen on-trend. Think white or misty grey for a monochrome approach, go for high contrast with ice blue or rich golden tones. A flashy set of appliances can unify your kitchen and keep black counters from looking stark.
Brown granite countertops have a consistent color profile. With hints of rust and cream, this makes them easy to match. Pair your brown countertops with mahogany-colored paint for a Tuscany-inspired look. It’ll inspire everybody to gather for a family-style pasta feast.
Reframe Your Tile and Appliances
Contrast white appliances with a burst of color on the walls. Imagine fresh blue or sunny yellow for instant farmhouse charm. Or choose between daring red and sophisticated charcoal grey to get a modern look. For a casual and relaxed vibe, complement beige flooring using paints with orange to red undertones. A touch of pink or gold glam can catch the eye in a cream-colored kitchen, (think hardware pairings for cabinets and drawers). Or warm things up with homey burnt orange accents.
