Im tired of my yellow kitchen and i want a new color. I am asking this because I am thinking of going blue but Im not sure. I want to pick color but its harder than I thought! There are hundreds of them and I just have no clue...My cabinets are brown and white floor....I have always had a sort of coca cola them and I do like the retro look very much...you see why I am having trouble, I want a new color that does not look old. Please help with any suggestions..thank you.

Can you take pictures of what it looks like now?

Blue would be pretty,a light blue though since your cabinets are brown.You wouldn't want your kitchen too dark...neutral colors are always good to consider too.

My kitchen is green, but my cabinets are white. Do you have a picture of your kitchen? That would help in giving color suggestions.

Grey with yellow accent is the new "trend" colors.

My kitchen is blue right now but I may paint it a soft grey in the future. Not because it's the trend though...lol! I've actually been thinking of doing grey for quite some time now.

This is the blue I have now....

I reccommend going to valspar.com There you can a pick a kitchen or any other room that closely resembles yours and play with colors to see how it will look. What I also like about that site is it will help suggest trim colors that go with the main color you choose. That is how I chose what colors I was going to paint in my house.

Bump.

I'm going through the same kind of agony about trying to pick out a color for our 2 story foyer and, well, basically the entire main level. My kitchen is a bright yellow.  I have dark green counter tops so I don't know what other color.

Be careful what color blue.  A friend painted their kitchen a medium blue but their brown cabinets had an orange undertone and it looked awful.

My kitchen is green.  We have maple (I think) cabinets and brown tile.  This is the green color.

I've always liked dark tones for the wood, with like a gold color for the background

So something like this

With this color wall, they call it Tuscany gold

My kitchen has tan walls (Drifting Dune is the name of the color), white cabinets.  I LOVE sunflowers, so those are my decorations.  I love the dark green accents that I have.
