Why Choose Horner Painting?

Tip of the Month: Classic Kitchen Colors

November 9, 2020

Painting your kitchen can completely change the character of the space. And, done right, a new paint job can make your kitchen feel cozier, cleaner, and more welcoming. So, which colors work best for kitchen walls? And why? Let’s delve into some considerations to weigh when choosing the perfect color to coat your kitchen, and let’s take a look at a few classic colors that always seem to work.

As always, if you’re ready to update your kitchen (or any surface of your home — interior or exterior!), you can call on Horner Painting for our premier painting services. Horner Painting proudly provides painting services throughout Northern Colorado — feel free to  reach out to us today to get started!

Kitchen Painting Considerations

Take a fresh look at your kitchen. Look at the tile, countertops, cabinets, windows, and flooring, and ask yourself: Is there a theme? What character would I like to give this space? If you have a light, airy, open kitchen with clean, white cabinets, then you may want to stick with light, natural tones to match the theme.

Or, if you have a kitchen with warm wood cabinets, brass fixtures, dark wood floors, and a dark tile backsplash, then a bold red or slate color may work well to keep with the rich character or your kitchen.

Since it’s easiest to change the paint of your kitchen (versus the tile, flooring, countertops, etc.), it’s best to base your upcoming paint color on your kitchen as is — unless, of course, you’re planning a full kitchen remodel. Be sure to get plenty of paint color swatches, and compare all your options with the fixtures, furnishings, and surroundings of your kitchen to help you settle on the perfect pick for your paint.


Classic Paint Colors

For the most part, you’ll want to steer clear of gaudy colors in your kitchen. Instead, opt for natural colors, including colors that are reminiscent of plant life, like avocado green, lime, or aquamarines. Lively earthy tones work great in kitchens, since food is often in view. These hues are perfect if you keep a few houseplants in the kitchen, too.

You can also go with dark neutral tones, such as slate, charcoal, or espresso brown. Consider these colors in kitchens with a richer character, and don’t overdo the dark tones, especially if you have a smaller kitchen (since dark paint colors can make a room appear smaller).

And on the other end of the scale, you can consider white, off-white, and ivory. These light, uplifting colors are ideal for smaller kitchens, and kitchens with a clean, airy appeal.
