5 Colors to Paint Your Kitchen This Spring

Paint Your Kitchen Black

People typically think of kitchens that are painted a bright white. However, why not paint your kitchen with a little zest this spring by choosing one of these overlooked colors to match your kitchen personality?

1. Black

Black is back in stylish kitchens this year – and with good reason. Sleek and elegant, the color black is associated with luxury, easy to match, and timeless. Add an accent of black to your kitchen by painting the cabinets. This will give your kitchen a modern noir look. Or, if you’re feeling bold, you can paint the walls black. Black looks great when balanced out with rich lighting and bright colors.

Bonus: the color black suppresses hunger. So, if you’re on a diet, painting your kitchen black could be a smart move to curb excess snacking!

2. Green

Bring the joy of nature into your kitchen by painting your walls green. The color green promotes feelings of health and tranquility, making your kitchen a place to recharge and restore your energy after a long day. Mint and forest greens look great paired with natural wood cabinets.

3. Red

There’s a reason that the color red is so popular in restaurants. Red is a warm color that draws your attention – and stimulates your appetite. Red is the go-to color if you want to make your kitchen an inviting place for your family to linger over a meal. Choose a deep red, such as burgundy. Decorating your kitchen with this color can help improve your kitchen’s ambiance, and make every homemade dinner feel like you’re eating at a five-star restaurant.

4. Yellow

Most people begin their days in the kitchen. Painting the walls a warm color such as yellow can help give a positive start to your day. The color yellow is associated with optimism, sunshine and happiness. To go with a more conservative look in your kitchen, try choosing a pastel or softer yellow. A bright yellow can tend to overpower a room, but it’s a great color choice for a trim or cabinets. If you go with a bolder shade of yellow, make sure to balance it out with more neutral whites or matching pastels.

5. Grey

Grey is a gorgeous color for an art deco-style kitchen. If you have stainless steel appliances, light grey walls can complete the industrial-chic look. Grey walls look best in kitchens with ample lighting.
