Paint Color Ideas to Brighten Kitchen

I have white kitchen units with black counter tops. I am looking for a suitable colour for the walls. I don't get a lot of sun in the kitchen and don't want to make it appear darker. Any ideas?

You could go with a golden tan that brings in a hint of yellow or do sage or celery and go green, both will lighten the space.

Thanks Allison, actually have green on the walls at the mo but think it's the wrong shade!

My friends were horrified when I told them that I was painting my kitchen walls bright pink, but now they absolutely love it! Pink with black and white would give a retro 50's look. Dare to be different!

Paint it a satin gold or amber color. I actually know someone with these exact colors in her kitchen and it looks fantastic!

How about a cantalope or honey dew color? An aqua would also be nice. Good luck!

Personally I am a big fan of yellow, not orange yellow like school buses but a clear, bright yellow like summer sun. depending how much wall space you have to cover, you could do a couple of shades, one lighter than the other, on opposite walls and if you like yellow.

I think a tera-cotta would be awesome.

I am thinking either a baby powder blue, or a light gray which would pick up the black.

I painted my kitchen 'Halo Yellow' which is a very pale yellow, and it is beautiful. It is like a creamy whitish-yellow. It will brighten your kitchen as well. I wish I could remember the brand, but I know it was a common brand, Behr, etc.

I would love pale green for most of the walls, with a deep gold as an accent color.
