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.
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.
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.
French country kitchen colors are very popular, and this theme gives a cozy and warm look to the kitchen. Pick color for walls which are a butter shade of yellow and off-white and stucco texture for the ceiling. Add weathered and stained cabinets, and display copper cookware, and use terracotta tiles. Pick an earthy granite material for kitchen countertops. Then add few wrought iron chairs and chandelier to complete the look.
No kitchen remodeling is complete until you replace your old kitchen countertop with new ones. Choose inexpensive countertop material like laminate and tile instead of costly countertop materials like solid stone slab and quartz surfacing countertop. You can also choose ceramic tile countertop as they are inexpensive and comes in a variety of styles and designs. However, they are very time-consuming to install. Laminate countertops are one of the cheapest option and they are durable and available in a wide range of patterns and textures.
