What Color Should I Paint My Kitchen Walls?

We have black granite countertops, orange tile backsplash and chestnut cabinets with stainless steel handles. I want to paint our walls a sage/putty green or a light gray. Would this look OK? Thank you!

It could work, but you're adding some contrast. I would also consider a tan/cream in the same tones as the cabinets, but lighter, as long as it matches the back splash, though. That's the tricky part. Get a few samples and paint them on a poster board and live with it for a few days to see.

I have honey oak cabinets with brushed steel handles, cream tile floors, and black Ukatuba granite countertops. I need exact paint colors to pull these extremes together. Please help.

I used to do design work. I suggest going to an interior design furniture store and have them do a work up for you, nothing really time consuming since you only want paint, but on a slow day they would be more than happy to sell you some paint in exchange for color ideas. Good luck. :) (07/21/2010)

I am looking to change the color of my kitchen walls. I have golden pine cabinets, black granite laminate countertops, beige laminate flooring, and espresso window blinds. What color would look good?

My kitchen walls are painted with Sherwin Williams Copper Pot. I would love help in picking out a beige/tan color for my dining room that will compliment it. I prefer that the beige/tan does not have green or peach undertones.

I'd pick up a slew of paint chips and hold them at arms length near, but not on the walls. Try it in every kind of light you'll see in that room, daylight on sunny and cloudy days, with and without turning on lights, etc. I've found that holding it up against the wall just brings out the contrast between that and the old paint. My color memory isn't good, so what I think might look good in the paint store sometimes looks yucky in my room. That's why I get lots of chips. By the way, there are some nice paints out there with no smell, off-gassing, or toxic materials. I've been really happy with Freshaire. (09/26/2009)

I have maple cabinets and white Corian counter tops. My kitchen has a clear view of my dining room which is painted a color called Cherokee brick, it's slightly on the pink side. I picked out a light green color called blue grass and it looks horrible. Do you have any advice?

How about a light tan with just a hint of light pink or apricot in it? Or accent some places with a deeper color like Hunter Green. (06/25/2008)

Use the same color as our dining room or just a slightly lighter version. Should be great with your maple cabinets and white counters. Your greens could be the accent colors or some color that you use in your dining room as accents. Tie the two together. (06/25/2008)

I had a very white kitchen and I wanted something new, so I went with Pumpkin Orange, and my dining room in Instant Delight, sorta like a yellow orange. Everyone that has seen my kitchen really likes it. Not everybody might like it, but I think it is really pretty. (06/26/2008)

I will be painting my old cupboards an eggshell just a galley kitchen no table, tile floors, and counter light tan with white and a light green. I would go with a sage green wall with black accents like lights, etc. (02/06/2009)
