kitchen paint

I can't decide on a color to paint my kitchen walls and trim. It is very small and has 1 window above the sink. The cabinets are a oak color I have black and silver appliances. Any suggestions??

What about counter top colors? We just changed ours from a deep red to golden yellow to brighten it up a bit and it highlights the gold flecks in our counter top.

I restarted my phone and it let me add pictures!. Sorry my kitchen is dirty. This is my first day off work. (I worked 4days and 12hr shifts)

The floor has more of a beige/ tan color then what the pic shows. I don't have much wall area, just what is by the laundry room door.

It has low ceilings too.

Re: kitchen paint

I would paint it a taupe color, on the grayish side. We had that as the main color in our last house, and I loved it! I wish I could paint this house that color. It tones down the orange tones in the cabinets, I think.

Re: kitchen paint

I painted my kitchen a celery green and I love it. The exact color is new palmetto in the walmart paint brand. I think it would look very nice in your kitchen. It is a very neutral green and it has brightened up my kitchen.

Re: kitchen paint

Are you able/willing to paint your cabinets?

I would do paint them white or cream and the walls a slate gray.

I have thought about painting them. And adding handles.
