Take the cafe curtain off the window, add under-cabinet lighting, and paint those oak cabinets glossy white! You can even add a mirror over a window-less sink to bounce the light around. The lighter and brighter your kitchen, the roomier it will feel. So all white is not your thing? No problem — but try to pick a color and stick to it. If your cabinets, walls, and countertops are all varying shades of gray, for example, the space would not feel chopped up by a countertop that is a strong contrast to the woodwork above and below.
There is no set rule on where to start when it comes to choosing a color palette for your kitchen, but your wall color can help dictate how you design the rest of the room. Some popular paint colors for kitchens include yellow, red, blue, white and green. Overall, lighter wall colors tend to work well in kitchens and can create an airy and inviting atmosphere.
