Hi everyone, I could use some help with picking a painting scheme for our kitchen. We are getting all new cabinets that are very similar in stain to what we have now (just newer, nicer, more functional, and a simpler style). So my problem is how to paint the attached eating area. The paneling on the bottom is looking it's age so I'd like to paint it. Options are as follows:
1. Bluish color on bottom and greenish on top walls. My husband likes this option as it would have more color. Both colors would be somewhat lighter than this inspiration photo and there wouldn't be cream on the walls. I guess the blueish color would be on all the trim and doors.
2. Bluish color on bottom with a very light beige on top and white trim and doors.
3. White/cream on bottom and then light bluish or green on top wall. White/cream trim and doors.
I'm trying to go for a visually calm look. We have the brown stained cabinets and then brown sparkle granite which is rather subdued. Floors will be Daltile San Michele Crema which is a light travertine look tile.
Thoughts or suggestions? I could really use some help on this as color isn't my forte.
