What Paint Colours Could I Consider for My New Kitchen?

I am in the process of redoing my kitchen and I am observing all kind of colours that are being used in new kitchens. I would like to paint the walls to give the kitchen a warm and inviting look and I noted that yellow-based tones are usually selected with this purpose, notably for accent pieces and  curtains. I am not sure if I should go yellow, also because I am not that particularly fond of this colour. I am now wondering what type of alternative colours could I use instead of yellow…

Hi,

I understand your doubts since me too I really don’t like yellow based kitchens. Alternately, you could use a very close tone such as a cork-colored yellow or terra cotta red for your walls as well as for other accent pieces.

I think that it is always the style of the kitchen and material selections that affect any colour choice. Yellow is very common, indeed, for country kitchens, but if you are going to have a rustic kitchen you can also choose antique white, browns of all kind or even oxblood reds.

My husband and I we turned to a consultant and decorating expert for advice on kitchen colours to create a perfect scheme for our home. At the beginning, we had very different ideas about paint colours before start building our new house, indeed. Our kitchen designer and colour consultant suggested trying dusty shades of blue and lavender for our kitchen, as well as rosy browns or fresh greens, ensuring more pizzazz than earth-toned neutrals paint colours that people commonly use. These colours can represent a good alternative option for you too. In any case, I personally think that browns generally work better than greens.
