Selecting paint colors can be frustrating and take a lot of time. There are just so many different hues to choose from. However, specific colors work best in certain rooms. Here, we’ll examine some of the top colors to keep your kitchen looking fresh and beautiful.

The color red, which is warm on the spectrum, can help to stimulate appetite, making it an appropriate choice for kitchens. Red also gives you a pop of color, no matter which shade you choose. You can use red on the walls, or — if you aren’t quite ready to commit to this bold color — on kitchen cabinets.

White is a popular choice for kitchens, and for good reason. It is fresh and clean, not to mention energizing. White walls are an obvious choice, but you can also have white cabinets, countertops, and backsplashes.

Gray may not be first in your mind when it comes to kitchen colors, but it is increasingly popular. Gray looks fantastic with stainless steel appliances. Be careful, however, with the shade you choose — go for either rich, darker shades or light, airy shades. Anything in between might look too monochrome.

Yellow is perhaps the favorite kitchen paint color. It instantly brightens up a room. Yet, it has a soothing quality that makes people feel calm and happy. If your kitchen is on the smaller side, yellow can make the room feel bigger. For the freshest kitchen, pair yellow and white together.
