Painting kitchen cupboards and walls is a quick and cost effective way to completely change the look of your kitchen. Sometimes adding nothing more than a few coats of paint is all it takes to transform a kitchen from outdated and dull to chic and vibrant!
Choosing your new kitchen paint colors is probably the hardest part of the process. Classic white is very common in kitchens, but to some, it can also be rather boring. Neutrals, like beige, are also usually safe bets, but even those can fall short. If you’re really looking for a unique kitchen paint scheme, take a look at the ideas below for some amazing inspiration!
1. All White Kitchen
An all white kitchen can really brighten up a space and make it appear much larger. Painting kitchen cabinets white alone can make a huge difference, but painting kitchen walls white or off-white can really transform a kitchen completely!
2. Painting Kitchen Cabinets Black
If you’re going for a chic and sophisticated look for your kitchen, painting kitchen cabinets black can really make an impact. To keep this from making a kitchen too dark, though, stick with light colors for the walls, countertops, and trim.
3. Dark Kitchen Cabinets
Painting kitchen cabinets a dark color besides black can also create the sophisticated and chic ambiance you want, without being too harsh or gloomy. This dark gray-blue color, for instance, helps break up this large kitchen.
4. Red Kitchen Walls
Need to liven up your kitchen? Add some warm energy with some deep red walls.
5. Red Kitchen Cupboards
Craving color? Try painting kitchen cupboards a bright color, like bright red. To keep it from being too overwhelming or hard on the eyes, stick to light neutrals for the rest of the room.
6. Orange Kitchen Walls
If you’re the type to think outside of the box, try orange for your kitchen walls. It’s cheery and energizing!
7. Yellow Kitchen Accent Wall
Yellow is also a bright, cheery color for your kitchen! If painting kitchen cupboards or walls completely yellow is a bit too much for you, consider painting just one wall for a bright accent wall.
