The Perfect Kitchen and Dining Room Paint Color Ideas
Combined Kitchen and Dining Room present challenging painting opportunities.
A common dilemma when choosing paint colors for combining rooms is whether to paint them the same color or not, and if not, how to transition between them. You could simply ignore the problem and paint whatever colors you like best, but they may prove visually incompatible on the walls. A better way to create harmony between rooms is by emphasizing color choices within the same family, using complementary colors or by making gradual transitions using different shades of the same colors. Use of color visualizers and paint-chip combination suggestions can help you see the possibilities before you paint.
Kitchen and Dining Room Color Schemes
Kitchen and dining areas involve food, so choosing appetite-stimulating color schemes is one way to narrow color choice. Warm colors in the yellow/orange/red range promote appetite while blue/green colors suppress it. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a blue or green kitchen and dining room, but you may want to add warmer elements to both rooms, perhaps through light- to medium-toned yellow trim and cabinets paired with light blue walls, for example, tied together further using deeper-toned yellow and blue accents for dishes, linens and seat cushions. Similarly, if you love green, choose yellow-greens such as lime, avocado or olive rather than blue-greens to keep things warm, and pair it with amber-colored woods or similarly toned French grays.
