Help choose a paint color for tiny galley kitchen

ChanaMasalaOctober 17, 2013

Hi everyone! I need some help picking out a paint color for my kitchen. It is a galley - well, more like a hallway - and though it is south-facing, there is a balcony outside the door/window, so it doesn't get much light.

I am a lucky renter with a flexible landlord. I recently stripped and repainted the cabinets, as they were hastily painted white (without primer!) by our landlord before we moved in. Ugh.

The cabinets are light grey and the countertops are white tile with a blue/gray glass tile border. The hardware is black and nickel and I'm going for modern black and white accents.

Any advice appreciated!

What a great job, ChanaMasala (love the name). My suggestions are a charcoal, or whatever to pick up the rug stripes and small details, for the end wall and door for a little drama, but a white, cream, or cabinet gray for the side wall we see so it all blends back? I think any darker contrasting wall there will cause the stove and cabinets to advance. Of course, now that they're looking so good... :)
