Color is all the rage these days, and stylish, contemporary paint colors can often work wonders in your kitchen. White, blue, yellow, red, green, and orange are all popular kitchen paint colors, but there are many ways to modernize these shades. Blue has always been a smart shade to use in a cooking space. Lighter blues have an ethereal quality and bring the beach and sky to mind. But to really add interest to a space, many homeowners and interior designers are opting for bright blues such as turquoise, aqua and cobalt and darker blues such as navy. Striking and sophisticated, these colors can take kitchens to a new level, but it is important to use them sparingly and only in a room that already gets a lot of natural light since navy blues could make a kitchen feel dark.
When painting your walls, countertops, cabinetry, and shelves, use different colors that do not have a huge contrast. The space will look bigger than it is. But make sure the colors belong to the same color family. For instance, you can use soft gray and green hues. Buyers eyes would not be confused by the abrupt shifts from light to dark and your kitchen will look spacious and serene.
