Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo Mari O’Connor My ‘new to me’ house has the dreaded oak kitchen cabinets, too. They’re good quality, in good shape, so they’ll stay. The previous owners painted some of the wall red and some beige. I actually prefer the red walls with the oak (makes the oak look prettier and more modern. If you search my name you can find photos of my kitchen, red walls with oak and beige walls with oak. 1 Like Bookmark March 13, 2014 at 3:57PM Thanked by chloebud

Thanks so much for this post. I have all golden oak trim and doors in my house with a paler oak laminate flooring. We have just moved our kitchen to our old living room and are planning to open up our whole living space. I have already painted my new (used) cabinets Amherst Gray, which I love. I love its contrast with gold/brass. My countertops will be Emerald Pearl granite–which is pretty dark– black with flecks of blue and white. I have a mix of stainless and black appliances– not as bad as it sounds. I am also making an antique hoosier cabinet part of my kitchen. An oil finish made it golden/red in color. Windows are mostly east and west, a little south. I am just really stuck on what to do for wall colors. Right now there are four coordinating shades of beige/brown that help tone down the oak. I would like to do something similar with shades of gray. Any suggestions?

Tip #2: Select your paint color at home Don’t choose a paint color while standing in the paint store aisle. Bring home actual paint samples (many brands offer small sample jars) that you can apply to your walls. Paint these swatches next to cabinetry, flooring, countertops and any fabrics you plan on using in the space. Observe how the paint changes during the day and notice if any of your other kitchen materials are affected by light hitting the paint and reflecting onto the surface. For example, a strong red wall color may, at certain times of the day, reflect a pink hue onto white cabinetry or flooring.

Painting your kitchen walls is one of the quickest, and easiest ways to re-do a kitchen. Before you rush out and buy gallons of paint, think carefully about what your dream kitchen looks like. Experts agree that it’s not just the color on the walls that determine how a kitchen looks and feels. How the wall paint color relates to the cabinetry, countertops, tiles, molding, appliances, lighting and flooring is very important. Before you buy paint, test sample swatches on your walls and observe how the colors look at various times during the day and evening. Bring all your color influencers into the room so you can see how the paint looks with all the various elements.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo jhx1 Denita, I think there are some charcoal tones in the stain/grain of your cabinets that allow them to mix so well with the gray/beige colors. That might be enough of a difference that the same treatment might not work with the honey oak cabinets that do not have this. I am having a similar problem as chloebud, my cabinets might be slightly darker, (pics are hard to tell) but are still more honey than not. I also need to find a new wall color and may not be able to paint my cabinets. And grays are not working at all. 2 Likes Bookmark March 13, 2014 at 3:58PM

Tiny Kitchen: You don’t have to steer away from dark colors in a small kitchen. In fact, having a mix of contrasting colors can help the kitchen feel larger. Depending on your cabinet color, a strong paint like Rapture (4001-6B) has enough blue and red, as well as gray, to make it work with a variety of other colors. Adding rows of shelving and utilizing the kitchen’s vertical space can help break up the paint while maximizing storage.

Southern Exposure: Southern light is stronger, more direct and tends to shift throughout the day. This might make your paint colors look very different at different times. You might notice that the strong sunlight makes paint colors reflect onto nearby surfaces. Kitchens with a southern exposure can do well with all walls being painted with the same color but keep in mind that during the day, each wall might appear to be a different shade. As the warm light will draw out warmth in the color, choose earthy colors like Almond Oil (EB46-4) or go with a stronger color like Sunglow (3003-2B) or Exotic Sea (5004-10B).

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo janedoe2012 I think the original photo look better than anything suggesting in the thread. Why not white? The cabinets are dated, but I think the “yuck” reaction to honey oak is overdone. They aren’t avocado appliances. There is nothing intrinsically awful about light oak cabinets. And I think the bright counters look great with them. And I am surprised to see how well the stainless appliances coordinate. I am just not seeing a problem here (although I am a little wary of the floor I can’t quite make out). Like Bookmark November 7, 2015 at 9:32AM
