Selecting a wall color for the kitchen can be one of the most difficult home decor decisions you make. There are appliances, cabinets, countertop materials, a backsplash and flooring to consider. And if your kitchen is small, choosing the right small kitchen wall color seems even more crucial. There is no “best” small kitchen wall color, but there are many excellent choices that can make your space look larger and give it the style you seek. Use cool colors in a small kitchen because they recede and allow the kitchen to appear larger. Cool colors tend toward blues, greens and purples. Use muted versions to make the small kitchen even larger. Try celery, lettuce or mint for greens, dusty muted blues like colors of sea glass or purples in the range of a deep iris or a muted (sliver or grey) berry. Cool colors will do well on walls in the small kitchen because they are not overwhelming. Try painting cabinets and walls the same color to make whole sections of the kitchen open up visually. Combine with a white for more expansion.
Go neutral with a soft cappuccino, a gray oyster white or a buttery off-white. Neutrals work much like white to create visual expansion. White will always make a space or room appear larger and is the perfect paint color for a small kitchen. Use a latex enamel paint for easy cleaning of painted surfaces. Add a touch of warmth and allow the color of nuts to guide the paint color choice–peanut butter, almond or cashew provide a starting point for selecting color. These just a few small kitchen wall color ideas that you can choose. After all, keep in mind to choose that open the space up and feel refreshing instead of cramped.
