The Best Way To Choose A Kitchen Paint Color

This quick tip will have you picking new kitchen paint colors in no time


Often referred to as the “heart of the home,” the kitchen is the hub of activity for most families. Whether you’re ushering everyone out of the door in the morning to start their day or entertaining friends late into the evening, the kitchen always plays a central role. Now could be a great time to think about updating its color palette.  

"Produce" Some Ideas

If you’re struggling to find color ideas for your kitchen, try looking around the produce department or your own refrigerator. The deep violet of an eggplant, the vibrant green of a pepper or the subtle neutral tone of an onion can be great inspiration for your kitchen color!

Reds, oranges and yellows are popular colors for the kitchen due to their warmth and natural knack for stimulating conversation. They also happen to be the colors of kitchen staples. Think of apples, oranges (well that was easy) and bananas. Now, think of all those other kitchen items that could serve as your inspiration.

Hey, your favorite foods and appliances may be telling you something.
