Designers offer strategies for finding the best color to bridge finishes. Find out which shall work best for you It used to be that many people thought everything in a house — wood tones also metals with countertops — had to match.

But today it’s perfectly acceptable to choose one type of countertop for your kitchen perimeter also another for the kitchen island. You might choose one hue for your upper cabinets also a different one for the lower ones. You could mix metals plus wood tones with lighting styles with finishes.

It’s great to have freedom, but all this mixing with matching could also lead to confusion. After you’ve selected multiple finish materials, how do you choose a paint color that bridges them all? See how three designers approach this challenge.

Don`t head to the paint store first. This kitchen, by Tammara Stroud blueprint in Seattle features a wide range of materials. The kitchen island countertop is butcher block; the perimeter counters are Costa ’Esmeralda’ granite, a natural stone that resembles soapstone. The tile backsplash — which appears both gray plus ocher in places in this photo, owing to the lighting — is really a smooth pearl gray.

When it came time to choose a paint hue that will work harmoniously with all the surfaces, Stroud revolved to the blend of materials for direction. "There`s always something you have to pull color plus inspiration from," Stroud says.

"The island is a beautiful solid walnut" that has red undertones, so she knew the color she selected couldn't clash with red. "The stone had subtle sand colors in the veining." The paint hue she selected — seen at right in the photo over as well as to the left of the double doors — is a gray with brown undertones that echoes the sandy tones of the countertop veining.

Designer tip: Stroud doesn't have hard as well as fast rules for choosing wall paint hue in a mixed‐materials kitchen. "Every project is so different," she says. "What I shall advise never doing is picking one thing in isolation." Instead, she endorses looking at all the surface finishes together before finalizing each one. Only then must paint hue be selected.
