Are you ready to have your kitchen painted with a new fresh color, but are struggling with all the choices?
In this article, we will explore different fresh colors that will work with most kitchen styles and cabinet colors. We hope we can help you love your kitchen again.
First, it’s good to start by keeping in mind your cabinet color, flooring color, backsplash, and countertops. If you have a piece or swatch of each of these items (a designer’s dream) you will have a much easier time choosing the right color. Pulling these items together helps you see the undertones in each element.
What do you see? Do these have cool, warm, or neutral tones? Even with the elements that may seem neutral, sometimes putting them together on a white table, you may notice blue, yellow, green, or purple undertones for example.
Next, start pulling paint swatch samples. What style kitchen do you have? Are you trying to create a farmhouse style kitchen with nice neutrals, blues, greens, or creamy yellows? Or do you like a modern and sleek style that uses monochromatic colors or lots of whites?
We know sometimes you may not really have a style, you just want a beautiful kitchen with paint that looks perfect. Here are some paint colors from Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Willimas, and Behr to help you choose the right one for you.
Neutral paint colors are great in a kitchen where you just need a soft muted color or if you a trying to sell your home. They help to pull together a kitchen with boldly painted cabinets, or a kitchen that you would like to keep light and airy.
You can pull beautiful neutral tones out of your natural countertops or flooring which will guarantee a great color pallet.
If you have an open floor plan, soft neutral paint colors give a calm transition between rooms. These colors look great with any cabinet color choice and can help your cabinetry, backsplash, or countertops pop.

Some people find figuring out cool colors to be tricky. Especially in the hundreds of gray color swatches. There are both cool and warm grays.
If you are looking for cool paint color, look for one with light purple, blue, or green undertones. They will remind you of the sky, water, or snow.
Most people find these tones to be very calming. These colors will work best with white or dark cabinets.

For warm colors, think of tones you see in the sunshine, wheat, or desert landscapes. Colors with warm tones tend to make rooms feel cozy and inviting, which is especially nice for a kitchen.
A beautiful warm color can make a kitchen that gets filled with morning sunshine in the winter feel cheery even on a cold overcast day.
If you have painted white, natural, or oak cabinets, you will find these colors will be a great compliment.
