When you are looking to redesign and remodel your kitchen, one of the things that can make the biggest difference in how it comes out is the paint color you choose for the walls. There are a lot of factors that go into this, including whether you are matching the color to your existing cabinets, countertops, and floors, or if you are having your Sacramento kitchen remodeling contractor redesign your entire kitchen from scratch. A complete redesign leaves you with endless kitchen paint color options, while just repainting your walls limits your color choices because they need to match what is already there. Either way, you must choose the right kitchen paint colors or risk spending time in a kitchen that doesn’t fit your style tastes.
When you hire a Sacramento kitchen remodeling contractor to paint your kitchen, they will bring a lot of expertise to the table. But in the end, the color you choose for your kitchen walls will be entirely up to you. Don’t worry. There are plenty of tools out there to help you pick the right color. For starters, you may want to look into online design programs that let you simulate what different colors, patterns, and textures will look like on your kitchen walls. Many of these programs offer 3D views, and may even allow you to share the results with your friends and family to solicit their opinions. Plus, some of them are even free to use! Then, when you have a consultation with your contractor, you will be able to provide them with paint colors you like, creating a great starting point.

TITLE: How to Choose Kitchen Paint Colors
NARRATION: Hi, I’m Nadia Geller, interior designer with Homestyler. Today, I’m going to show you how to refresh your kitchen with paint.
There are so many options to add color to your kitchen. First, decide on the tone you are going for… cool or warm. If you’re keeping your cabinets as they are, this may dictate your direction. For instance, warm wood tones go really great with blues and greens. But if you have dark brown, black, or white cabinets, you can go in any direction. Just keep in mind the color of your tile and your flooring. You wouldn’t want anything that clashes.
If you have decided to paint the walls, a home design program can save you a lot of time and money. This one is Homestyler. It’s a free service that lets you create 3D design of your home and experiment with everything, including color, so you can play with swatches in the program before you buy samples of paint. You can even look up a specific color from the paint manufacturers library, so there’s no question what you’re looking for when it comes time to purchase.
Another idea… consider wall treatments. They come in a variety of textures, and even stripes. Experiment with Homestyler until you find an ideas that feel right for you, and then share them online with family and friends. Then, print out a list of paint colors and take it with you when you purchase your paint (or present it to your Sacramento kitchen remodeling contractor for their thoughts).
Whether it’s a single wall, just a ceiling, or some carefully chosen accents, you’ll be surprised how different a change of color can make a room feel. It truly is a funny and inexpensive way to completely change your kitchen. So go ahead, cook up some color.
