The first key step is to consider the overall color theme of your kitchen when deciding on paint colors.
Think about how they’ll look alongside your countertops, backsplash, and flooring.
Think about the contrast between cabinet colors and what kind of statement you want to make in your kitchen.
You can go for a bold look by pairing two different colors that create an eye-catching contrast, or you can opt for a more subtle mix of similar hues that still adds visual interest.
Select colors with the same undertone. For example, if you are selecting blues choose shades that both have yellow undertones or pick shades that have cool undertones.
Consider opposites on the color wheel. Black and white a stark opposite and create a modern look that can fit almost any design style.
This can be the color for either the perimeter cabinets where the kitchen island is a different color or all the base cabinets can be one color and the upper cabinets are a different hue.
Pay attention to the undertones of the primary color. For example, if your primary color has warm undertones, you may want to choose a complementary color with warm undertones as well.
