Choosing the right colors for painting your kitchen and your kitchen cabinets can be mind-boggling, but there is a trick to make it simple. For selecting the best painting colors for your kitchen you need to consider these factors:
1) Consider the Style of Your Home
Certain color combinations will blend better with your home decor than others. If you want to update the color of your kitchen walls, consider how the color will work with your kitchen cabinets and the overall style of the home. Is your home contemporary, vintage, royal, serene, eco, wooden or bohemian?
2) Kitchen Ambiance
You may want to give your kitchen a personality that reflects your personal tastes or a color that will enhance the purpose or function of the room. More often, the kitchen is a gathering space where families enjoy each other’s company, cook and munch, which is why many prefer a pacifying color palette.
3) Think about kitchen cabinets and fixtures
If your cabinets and fixtures follow a certain style and theme, you may want to keep the same style and theme for your kitchen walls —unless you want your walls to staunchly stand out. If you are considering a complete kitchen remodel, you can play with ideas for cabinetry, appliances and fixture choices.
4) Furniture is important
Re-purposing kitchen furniture is a great way to re-invent your kitchen’s style. Color can bring a kitchen to life, and it doesn’t need to only be on your walls. If you want to go bright, think about painting your kitchen chairs and tables with vibrant colors. If you want to experiment with something more exquisite, consider contrasting furniture that complements the backdrop or other decor in the kitchen.
5) Consider neighboring rooms
When choosing the right paint color for the kitchen, consider the theme, color, and style of neighboring rooms. If your room or hall shares a wall with kitchen, think about how the kitchen paint will look when moving towards the kitchen from hall or room, or vice versa.
6) Decide on the color palette
Before painting the kitchen, select a color palette. Consider what will make you feel peaceful, productive, or just plain social while you prepare meals or spend time with loved ones. You can opt between a classic, mild or trendy color palette depending on your taste.
