Top 5 Inspiring Kitchen Paint Colors

Updated: Jul 30, 2020

Coat your kitchen in a color you love with our favorite paint picks. With ideas for blues, grays, greens, and yes, even white, these versatile kitchen paint colors bring the beauty.

Tiffany Blue

Create a serene kitchen setting with a light and cheery hue inspired by the sky. This airy, bright blue paint lightens the look of the deep espresso floors and complements the clean white cabinets, marble countertops, and classic subway tiles. Be sure to use painters tape—especially if the walls curve, as in this archway—to achieve the desired crisp lines.

Paint Color: Quietude SW612, Sherwin-Williams.

Sandy Taupe

Take neutrals to the next level. Taupe-color walls serve as a warm but subtle backdrop for dramatic accents, like this kitchen's bold blue island and shimmering ocean-inspired backsplash. The sandy paint color, along with clean white trim, helps ease the transition between an open kitchen and the surrounding rooms. Keep in ming that for such a high-traffic area, you'll want paint that lasts and is easy to clean. Opt for a high-gloss or semi-gloss finish.

Bright white

Few hues are more timeless than crisp, clean white. For a warmer look, opt for a shade with a yellow undertone. Then dress your kitchen with the neutral paint color, then layer on color through cabinetry, lighting, and decor. If you choose to paint cabinets, be sure to apply two to three coats of paint, letting cabinets dry in between coats. This provides extra durability in a high-traffic area.

Buttery yellow

There's no happier place to enjoy that first sip of morning coffee than in a yellow kitchen. The cheery paint color provides a golden glow all day long and helps brighten taupe-gray cabinetry and dark countertops. Yellow works especially well for kitchens that don't already get a lot of light, so try it in a basement kitchenette or a home where the blinds stay closed.

Warm Greige

A deliciously rich mix of gray and beige, greige feels at home in any style of kitchen. Greige is incredibly versatile. The color can be mixed up depending on the ratio of gray to brown you choose. Balance the deep hue with white details, such as this cottage kitchen's beaded-board paneling, or an off-white ceiling color like khaki.

Paint Color: Texas Leather, Benjamin Moore.
