Line down the wall
February 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
When we painted the dining and kitchen we left a line down the wall where the paint colours meet as this was the recommedation of the lady in the paint shop. Now we don't like this, how do we make it look good instead of unfinished

Do you still have paint leftover? Carry the gray into the kitchen and paint it on this whole wall.

Exactly as stated above.

I should have said, the grey looks really awful with the kitchen cabinets, which is why the kitchen is a different colour.

Can you take the kitchen white the other way? It looks OK wit h he gray and may not clash with the furnishings in the other room.

I would definitely paint the rest of that wall gray. Even if it clashes with your kitchen, it will look better than the line down the middle. (Love that gray color of paint by the way!)

Just continue the grey on the wall next to it and under the bar area. It's hard to see if that would be ok to leave the kitchen as is...

Perhaps should have done very wide stripes start at far right with the gray then the kitchen color and so on.

If we continue the white the other way, we have the same problem a bit further on!

try the above paint suggestion and think about adding paneling to the expose bar end and turn under the dark counter. It will be easier to wash off those shoe marks when kids kick, and you won't have clash if you maybe painted paneling same as wall. Test paint with poster board and see if you like it first. Lighting can really make a difference in the perception of colors, and might fix the "clash". Try warm or cold colored bulbs in those pot lights, and see what happens. good luck

Just take the grey across the rest of that wall, it doesn't look like just that piece of wall will impact on your kitchen cupboards at all and you have the deeper grey in your bar stools. I would also then put a large piece of colourful artwork centred on that wall to give it it's own identity.

Whether you go for all white or all grey, carry the color all the way to the corner of the room. If white it will be an accent wall, if grey the room will look bigger because part of the kitchen space will appear to be part of the other room. I prefer continuing the grey, just to the end of the wall.
