Color for kitchen and family room
farraeJanuary 3, 2013
I have black granite and oak cabinets in the kitchen. I really like the stainless backsplash and would like to install it. The kitchen also has black appliances. I am looking for a color that I can paint the kitchen and eat in area but also have a second color that I can paint the connected family room. In the family room there is a brick fireplace. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks and happy new year!

Timeless Appeal
Yellow toned oak cabinets are over. I would have gotten stainless appliances instead of black (too much black), but this is what you have, so I would recommend you paint the cabinets a dove grey. Use stainless hardware to match the backsplash. Paint the walls a darker shad of grey and use either a white or off white color for trip. Possibly you can paint the ceiling a lighter shade of the walls. I find wrapping the room in color gives a nice warm feeling. Here's the genius...grey is a neutral color so you can accent with a million different colors that would work! Good luck....but really, do the cabinets. Look at (google) Sara Richardson's work online. She paints the cabinets in many of her kitchen designs.

Can you post pictures of both rooms for a better view of both spaces?

Here are the pictures of the kitchen and family room. They are connected. I recently painted the ceilings and prepped the walls for painting.

Thanks 14thstreet. I am going to look into painting the cabinets. It made such a difference in the before and after pix

Since both rooms ard connected, you could paint both rooms in a nice beige or tan color that is in the brick fireplace.This will give your rooms a nice flow of color. I love the colors in your kitchen and dining room rugs also.

If you don't mind something darker, you could go with Benjamin Moore's Dry Sage. It's similar to the shade of green that is in the kitchen rug.

I don't mind darker. I will check out the color. Also since I do like the colors in the rug I will see what other colors could be pulled in. Thanks so much for the suggestion. I am fairly new at decorating. My mom use to be the decorating genius but unfortunately she is no longer with us. Thanks so much for the suggestion.
