What’s your idea of the most-traditional paint color in the kitchen? Perhaps you’ve never given it much thought as you just migrate to the room which is the “hub of the house”. Whether you head to the kitchen to prepare the meals or raid the refrigerator, do you think of your kitchen as warm and inviting? Perhaps your kitchen area is small, crowded with large appliances and the countertops are jammed to capacity with smaller appliances, not lending much room to be too creative with wall colors. Maybe it is time to re-arrange the kitchen to create more space and add more color to this go-to room. Why not brighten up and lighten up your kitchen with some of the newer trends in paint colors and design listed below:
Wallpaper is out
Wallpaper is great when it is new. But over the years, it starts to absorb cooking odors, moisture from steaming pots and whistling teakettles, then the seams begin opening resulting in torn edges and/or gaping seams. Ugh. Re-wallpapering is quite a feat. First, ripping off the wallpaper is a tough job … almost as tough as spending hours poring over heavy wallpaper books to get the right look for your kitchen area. So … paint is your best choice! And, if the kitchen needs sprucing up or a lift in a few years, it sure is easy and inexpensive to apply a fresh coat of paint or two. Voila – a masterpiece … now to just master the mostaccioli.
Think neutral colors
You cannot go wrong with picking a neutral paint color for your busy kitchen area. Neutral colors work best in the traditional kitchen and are easier to accessorize and work well with all cabinet finishes.
Yellow is a popular color for kitchens, and that’s why you usually see a sunny yellow as the top pick for that room. The sunlight streams in and those bright and cheery walls help to make the kitchen the one place where the family will gather the most, even if your house has a separate dining room. Lingering, grazing and grabbing a bite to eat is all done in the kitchen.
But, besides the basic primary color of yellow, some other neutral or bold colors, or color combos, to add flavor to your traditional kitchen might be:
Coffee and cream or oil and vinegar
