Choosing paints depends on the mood you want to create in this area. For this, the homemaker’s choice should be given priority, as she will be using this area the most. For a calming effect, you need to consider cool shades and for a lively effect, go for the bold shades. You can use colors like yellow, off-white, beige, cool shades of red, pale blue or green, etc., to paint the walls. Color schemes can consist of dual tone walls with one of the above colors paired with off-white or white. Chocolate brown and beige also make a great looking scheme. For a lively effect, use gaudy colors like hot red, bright pink, violet, magenta, chocolate, orange, and black. For a jazzy look you can consider combos like hot red and gray, black and violet or magenta, orange and black, or black and a hint of bright green.
If you are thinking of kitchen remodeling, then Tuscan theme is a good choice. Tuscan kitchens imitate nature and colors like green, brown, yellow and red are used on walls. Use a stucco texture to get this theme, and opt for curtains which are light-colored or have striped or checked pattern on them. You can place wall tiles in front of the sink which have floral designs on them, and hang copper vessels for display. Add some wooden kitchen furniture, and for finishing touch place a large-sized copper pot on the table.
If you have a flexible budget, then you can go with a theme kitchen like Italian, Tuscan, or French country. If you are looking for a calm look, go with more whites and off-whites. For a cheerful look in the kitchen sunshine yellow walls are a good idea. If you want your kitchen to look stunning then pick colors like lavender, black, mint blue, light cherry, or pale green. Make sure you have enough cabinets and shelves to accommodate all the utensils to maintain the kitchen space uncluttered, this will also help in kitchen cleaning. For easier maintenance of the kitchen, go with a semi-gloss finish, as this finish makes the wall more durable and can be scrubbed.
Bright colors are used in a Mexican kitchen. Use warm colors like red, orange and yellow on the walls. For the countertop, different colored painted tiles look great.

Iron hardware on painted wooden furniture will add a nice rustic look. You can add some wrought iron chairs. Copper sink, with copper stove hoods will lighten the room and add to the ambiance. Hang some baskets and place them on table with some decorative food items, to complete the look.
Colors play an important role when it comes to decorating a house. Whether building a new property or renovating an existing one, a paint job is something which should be done wisely. The first step in this is choosing paint colors. This can get very confusing and frustrating. But, if you are sure what kind of effect you want in the room, the process of choosing room colors becomes easy. One of high traffic areas of the house is the kitchen. Hence, special attention should be paid when choosing colors for kitchens. If you have dark cabinets for your kitchen then here are some ideas on choosing the wall colors.
While you start working on the colors, you need to take into consideration a lot of elements. Starting with the kitchen cabinets, you also need to think about the shelves, island, and dining table. Cabinets occupy a major area of the room, hence matching colors with these is a must for right decor. You can have the cabinets painted in dual colors, both or one of these matching with the shades used for the walls. The dining tables and chairs (if you already have this set) also need to go well with the walls. Next, the tiles must be in shades that match with the paint for kitchens.
