Because much of your wall space tends to be covered by cabinets, backsplashes and appliances, the remaining areas offer a perfect opportunity for a bold accent wall color, without the risk of dominating the room.
Color is the easiest way to turn a kitchen (or indeed any room) around. Pick up a paintbrush and in half a day you can go from drab to fab, or instantly transform the space with accessories and artwork in off-the-radar hues. People often get stuck in a kitchen color rut for some reason, opting for the same old subdued palette of pale neutrals. I’m in the “dare to be different” decorating camp. I’m evangelical about intoxicating, lavish colour—not to be gimmicky or quirky but because it’s the biggest game changer I know.
Before you head to your local paint supplier and mix up a new kitchen palette, it pays to know a little bit about color theory. The idea got its start with Sir Isaac Newton, who described three primary colors of light — red, green and blue — and developed the color wheel. Colors across from each other on the wheel canceled out when mixed, producing grey, black or white. This bears some similarity to the concept of complementary colors; warm shades such as yellow or orange have complementary cool colors like green or purple, which provide a striking visual look when paired but aren't overwhelming.
If you have a black-and-white scheme, or espresso woods with white walls, and you want to soften the whole look a little, a midtone counter will bridge the very dark and very light elements so they meet in the middle.
