Did you make any resolutions this New Year? If so and you’re like most people, chances are good that your resolutions revolve around food, family and finances. This means you could be spending a lot more time in your kitchen in 2019 – eating healthier; spending more family time at meals; saving money by dining in more often. Choosing the right kitchen paint color can make your room more inviting and increase your chances of keeping those resolutions.
Complete kitchen renovations are costly and few people will do them more than once or twice, depending on how long they stay in their home. Repainting your kitchen walls is another story. Finding the kitchen paint colors that go well with your cabinetry and tile can give your room a whole new look, but you’ll also want the right feel.
Whether you’re cooking, eating or just hanging out with family and friends, your kitchen is one room you probably spend most of your time in. Think carefully about the feeling you want your kitchen to evoke and find the color most suited to that feeling. If you want sophistication, monochromatic gray is a good choice. White adds glamour, while burnt orange suggests warmth. If you’re looking for a light, bright, cheerful feel, consider shades of green. Even blue, a traditional favorite for bedrooms and baths, can work well in your kitchen.
When it comes to kitchen paint colors, there can be an overwhelming number of options. To help narrow down your choices, use your countertops, tile, cabinets, even your dishware for inspiration. Remember, you want people – yourself included – to enjoy being there. After all, it is the heart of the home.
