There are certain colors which can stand out and make the cabinets look less prominent. These are mostly bright colors. These colors need to be selected wisely, otherwise they can look too loud. The best is to go with medium or medium-light shades of such color. Some of the colors which will make the wall look more prominent than the kitchen are sunshine yellow, bright green, orange, red, and turquoise blue.
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.
One way to check if the wall paint colors go with your dark cabinets is to simply place some paint chip samples on it. Another way to do this is to take a picture of the kitchen cabinets and walls. Then paint the wall in a design software and compare. This way you will get a preview of how the two colors go with each other.
One of the best way to update the look of a plain and boring kitchen is to change the wall colors. Pick a paint color that is lively and fresh instead of a muted or pastel color. A bit of color in the kitchen can give the kitchen a completely new look. Choose paint colors like tangerine, sunny yellow and citrus greens to give the kitchen a warm look. Painting a kitchen is one of the most cost-effective way of renovating a kitchen. Alternatively, you can even install a wallpaper on one or two walls of the kitchen. A modern wallpaper pattern can enhance the kitchen decor and make it look stylish and contemporary. And the best thing about using wallpaper is that there are many inexpensive and discount wallpapers available in home improvement stores.
If you want a harmonious look of painted walls which complements the dark cabinets then use these ideas. The simplest way to do this is to choose a shade which is lighter than the color of the cabinets. For example, if you have dark brown cabinets then go for a shade of medium or light brown. If your cabinets are black in color go with gray.
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.
