kitchen paint color advice


i'm having difficulty choosing a paint color to go with my kitchen backsplash (pic attached). i plan to renovate in a few years so don't want to change the tiles at this point.

i want to add some color, but nothing i've looked at seems to work with the retro tile, so i'm reluctantly thinking about a light cream. the cabinet handles are being changed to silver and i'm considering oak laminate flooring.

any advise?

If you are considering Oak laminate flooring, choose any color that is similar to that of white sand. will give you that woody structure of uniformity

Was curious of the same....the countertop and cookstove look to be as high as the door.

As far as color, pale yellow or or a soft terracotta or peach color would look very nice with the existing colors in the room.

thank you for your suggestions. I ended up painting a light yellow which worked out well.

Its a standard size side door. There are a 3 steps down to landing, which doesn't show in the pic, making it look smaller!

OMG...I thought the same thing when I saw the door but then realized that there was prob a step-down to the door.

But anyways, did you put the backsplash up?

I would paint a similar color that is in the backsplash for the walls. New laminate flooring would look good.
