HELP with Kitchen Color


What would be a good wall color for kitchen/dining area with only 1 window???
This opens up to Living Room which is painted tan/taupe color. NO window treatments in any of the rooms & NO color scheme, just painted walls in LR. Sorry no pic of kitchen/dining at this time.

HELP with Kitchen Color


go for some light beige, light lemon yellows, lime green or ivory colors. donnu how much light in that room but if you want to have a space with some natural light get it painted in some light color shades.

HELP with Kitchen Color


If the pictures available then it becomes more easy to decide which colour has the best effect.Now i think the light grey colour will suits and the cabinet should be brown.

HELP with Kitchen Color


I have a kitchen w/ a double window facing North over the sink at one end and at the other end 2 large doorways on either side leading to other rooms. It doesn't get direct light, so it's fairly dark. The first thing that helped was I painted the cabinets an off white, dover white, satin from sherwinn williams. Then I installed a polish black granite (yes, black) and white subway tiles-both reflective surfaces. I also got stainless steel appliances, also reflective. I then installed recessed lighting throughout. Because the kitchen is in between two rooms, when selecting a color I had to consider the colors in the other rooms. What I decided to do was match the kitchen with the slate blue couch I have in the LR-I absolutely love it. It's not a light and bright color, but it brings life to the kitchen. So I would select a color that compliments the tan/taupe color or pull a color from that room, say from a striped throw pillow or an area rug.
