How to start choosing colors for kitchen update

SilverpointeSeptember 28, 2013

Hubby and I bought our first home and I am so in love with this little dutch colonial, I want to stay forever.

While I have spent almost every day of the last 3 months painting every room and freshening up the trim, I haven't touched this dreary kitchen.

We can't make many updates beyond paint color changes.

What is staying: general layout, cabinets, flooring (at least for a couple of years), counters.

* Counters are a very uninspiring corian. The husband is now committed to living with it since he found out the prev owners shelled out $3K for it!

I would like to start painting the walls and in a few months, paint the cabinets. My question is, how do I go about picking wall and cabinet colors when, down the road, there may be changes to the flooring and counters (if I get my way)?

I'll upload additional pix below. I haven't figured out how to post multiple pix in one post.

If you haven't already, I suggest posting this on the "Discussions" side of Kitchens. This is the "Gallery" side that's more for finished kitchens and the like. The Discussions side of Kitchens is for on-topic discussions concerning kitchen remodels. You will most likely get many more responses over there.

Good luck!
