Which wall color fits best with my kitchen?

With a really nice wall color, even an older kitchen shines in a whole new splendor. But even the built-in furniture looks even better in front of a freshly painted, radiant surface! Unfortunately, you can fall pretty far wrong in the color selection, so it is advisable to consider this step very carefully: What really fits my kitchen - and what not?

The kitchen: no longer a usable space!

Cosiness is very important in the modern kitchen, even if it is just a small room with a simple kitchenette. Often there is not only cooked, but also sat (or confessed) and talked, nibbled and laughed.

Larger kitchens usually also contain seats today, either at a bar or on an invitingly prepared dining table. The sociability is therefore very important here, so it seems all the more important to make this space friendly and comfortable.

And then there is the trend to separate the kitchen with a door from the rest of the living room: food and life simply belong together, so the cooking area remains open and visible to all. A good reason to go to a lot of trouble with the color selection!

Interplay of wall and front: a colorful duet

From the list above you can see that the kitchen fronts and wall paint must of course match to create a common visual effect. Of course, the combinations suggested above are to be added otherwise according to taste!

Above all, it is important that you decide before painting on whether you want a color harmony or prefer to create a strong contrast. In addition, the information could be helpful that bright colors make a room larger and darker make the kitchen look smaller.

If possible, paint the ceiling in white, because darker tones are often perceived as "stressful" above the head. Plus, just painting one wall in full color and the other in pure white could be a really good, individual solution for you.
