Kitchen paint color in 1810 cape
I'm renovating our kitchen and need assistance with paint color. I know there is a specific paint forum but I really want 'old home' color help so I hope this is okay.
My kitchen is small and the while the renovation will help it to feel larger we are unable to raise the barely 7' ceiling so I want to make sure my colors don't weigh the room down.
We are installing beadboard cabinets to match what is in the very early pantry. I keep returning to a red color for the cabinets and keeping the walls and trim around doors and windows as white but am concerned that it still might be too dark/make the room feel small. There will be four windows (3 across the front, southern facing and 1 facing north) so that will be helpful. We will continue the cabinet color into the dining room for the 2 board wainscoting, again leaving the walls and trim as white or a variation of white.
Our floors will be painted pine and I am hesitant to use white due to how quickly it will become dirty. We are a small farm and the in and out of muddy boots and dogs is pretty consistent year round. Any input on the color of the floor? Maybe a brownish yellow?
