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. You can go with mosaic tiles also. Terracotta floor tiles add a warm and traditional Mexican kitchen look, and are easy to care for. 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.
If you wish to give a touch of modern decor to the kitchen cabinets then certain color combinations like these would be useful. One of the most popular combinations these days is that of black cabinets with deep red walls. You can also have dark red kitchen cabinets with white walls. To give your kitchen a natural-Zen look, consider going with fresh green walls with some white wall designs and dark black or dark brown cabinets. White walls with some dark painted cabinets also look modern and give a very different look to the kitchen. White goes with deep blue, deep green, and deep red cabinets. Another way to make your kitchen look modern is to paint the kitchen walls in turquoise blue or lavender colors.
While picking the kitchen themes, there are many aspects you need to consider. If you have a small kitchen then for kitchen decorating, use monochromatic colors like white, blue, light gray or yellow. You can also consider installing additional windows and light fixtures to increase the amount of light in the kitchen. Make sure you maintain the least amount of clutter. If you have a large-sized kitchen then go for darker colors like purple, maroon, brown, etc. Also, the kitchen cabinets should be fitted according to the kitchen design to create harmony. For a squarish kitchen, go with a round or square dining table, for a large kitchen you can go with an oval or rectangular dining table. If you are on a tight budget, then go with contemporary theme, and look for cheap kitchen furniture, and add few lights and a flower vase to decorate your kitchen.
One good idea is that you must have 75% of the kitchen painted in the main color and 25% of it in a shade used to neutralize the effect, while you want to have a lively effect. For example, in case of schemes where you have black, it must cover at least 75% of the kitchen. This is essential to get the perfect feel. In case you are creating a calming effect, you can have the two shades in equal percentage. This way you can use same combination to create different effects. Like a combo of magenta and off white, violet spanning 75% of the kitchen and off-white spanning the rest will give a flashy look to the area. Same colors used in an equal ratio will give you a considerably cool effect. While you work on this, you should also consider the aforementioned elements like the cabinets, dining table, and wall tiles to have the desired effect.
If you have a small kitchen, go with a monochromatic light-colored theme, like whites or off-whites. If you have a medium or large-sized kitchen, then color themes like lavender-white walls with black appliances look great. You can also go with aqua blue and white walls with white appliances. Ceiling loft lights look great, and use soft colored towels in kitchens. You can also consider painting cabinets to match the appliances color.
