Paint color to go with stain
Hey guys. The kitchen in my house is done in stained paneling (i love it) but the cabenits and baseboards are done in this ugly brown color. I plan on repainting the baseboards and cabinets asap, but i was wondering if you guys could recommend some colors that would go good with the stained paneling.

Definitely need some pictures or some other color reference point to help you. What color are the walls stained? What color are other elements in the room that will not be changed? Appliances, for example. In essence, what is your starting color inventory?

Appliances are all white. Th walls are a mohagony color. I will also be gettin a new counter top soon (not sure what color) as well and may use either a white or grey tile on the backslash. I was told that a sage green would look good

Any of these mahogany stains close to your panel color? If so I can build you a color wheel real fast and post it with some suggestions. And just confirming, you are planning to paint and not stain and varnish cabinets, correct? How abundant is either natural or artificial light in the kitchen? What kind and color if you know?
