I am going nuts trying to choose a paint color for my kitchen.I like my kitchen cabinets and counters ..however its boring and I want it to pop.. My cabinets are maple with a ginger glaze..my appliances are black and my counters are giallo quarry silestone with beige, browns and black specks..I have included several pictures..Any thoughts on a color to pull it all together.
Thx

if you're looking for subtle, what about something like BM Baby Turtle? It's beigey with green undertones. Along those lines Dried Basil is another one.

You could also go bold if you really want contrast with something in the rusty tones. I just had a sense that bold may not be your vibe.

What rusty color would you suggest to make my cabinets pop?

What about a sage green? I would stay away from "beige" considering your entire kitchen is beige. More beige will not make it pop. I would go with green.

Which one goes best

If I were you I would pick several paint cards. put them up in your kitchen and see which ones you like best. See how they look up against your cabinets and your granite. Then once you narrow it down to 2 or 3 you can go buy samples. BM samples are $6 around here, and SW are the same. Totally worth it to me. Then you can paint large squares in your kitchen to see what will look best in your space.

If you are up for a strong statement, you could also paint one wall a sort of coral-paprika soft red (not dark). My niece had similar cabinets and used this on just one wall, it looked great (and gave that pop factor) with her maple cabinets and plain counter & floors. Her other walls were a very soft, pale sage-beige -- a color that I believe would be found in the "whites and lights" category at the paint store.

Take a look at BM's Camouflage. It's a soft color that I think would look nice with your cabinets and countertops. Ask them for one of their big samples to take home and try. It's a very nice color but subtle.

I love Raee suggestion of a light coraly red! While looking at homes for sale, I saw a kitchen with maple cabinets, Santa Cecilia granite, SS appliances, tumbled marble backsplash and light coraly red walls and it was gorgeous! The adjacent living area walls were tan and there were coral accents throughout, barstool covers, throw pillows, artwork and area rug. I loved the look, it gave an otherwise bland nuetral space(the house was on the market) a punch of much needed color!

what do you all think about bm dry sage? minus the mess on the counters!!

RE: Kitchen paint color help needed!

sis2two, I have BM Camouflage in my bedroom and used to have it in my kitchen before I updated it. It's the most color I've ever had on a wall and I really love it in my bedroom. It changes throughout the day and is always soft and soothing. However, in my kitchen (not as much wall space) it kinda faded out and was inconsequential, maybe just the way the light hit it. It does look nice with all tones of wood.

I think the dry sage looks great. How does it look in person? It looks very warm and inviting with the other tones in your space.


 o
RE: Kitchen paint color help needed!

It looks lovely on my monitor. Seems like a great choice with your cabinets and countertops.

I may be too late --- but have you considered blue?

or a lighter greenish blue

Rusty red

Red

I don't think the sage provides the pop you wanted. I love the first blue one that nosoccermom posted, but you wouldn't have to go quite as intense. It looks like it would work well with the counters. What color is the floor?


 o
RE: Kitchen paint color help needed!

I would consider a gold


 o
RE: Kitchen paint color help needed!

I think dry sage is perfect! How are you feeling about it?


 o

Im liking the dry sage
