Kitchen Soffit Paint Color

chaten2September 23, 2010

I'm in the process of painting and glazing my dark brown 80's cabinets SW Antique White with a chocolate brown glaze. I plan on getting new Customcraft High Resolution countertops in Sedona Trail for the main part of the kitchen and possibly Luna Night for the island. My biggest dilemma is what color to paint the soffit above my cabinets. My dining room is attached and currently everything is PonyTail (can't remember paint brand) and my curtains in my dining are a black/creme check and I have walnut floors (so a mix of light/dark wood). Please give me some good ideas for my soffit. Also if I should go with a black countertop on my island (or keep the countertops all the same).

I'm going to follow this thread because we're having issues with the paint color of our soffits right now too. We went ahead and painted them the same color as the rest of the room but I'm not quite "sold" on it yet. :o)

Yes, I'm stressing myself out over this part of the remodel. I thought about matching it with the cabinet color to give it the illusion that I don't have the ugle soffit :) But I also saw someone paint their soffit dark brown (white cabinets) and it looked great-but I have some black in my kitchen. So any input is greatly appreciated.

Here are some links on soffits from GW. Maybe they can
help you. I love this one idea of making the soffit look
like molding.
