Go big also bold or else dwindle away. Laura Groenier, owner of Silver Leaf insides in Madison with Wisconsin has three strategies she likes to employ when tackling the wall paint color for a mixed-materials kitchen.
"One is to stay pretty neutral also let the selected finishes do their thing — pop with balance each other," she says. "Another option is to go with a deep rich neutral maybe a navy," she says.
The kitchen photographed here by Ray Gardner at principal Line Kitchen blueprint characteristics the second policy. The white circumference cabinets with a black countertop with the black kitchen island with a white countertop are set off plus pulled together by the rich impartial gray of the feature wall.
This Silver Leaf insides project — an off‐white kitchen with midtone wood floors as well as a beige, brick‐like backsplash — is a good example of Groenier's first strategy: letting the finishes balance one another.
No need for a rich neutral wall paint to tie them all together; instead, the choice (note the wall paint above the cabinets) fades into the setting, allowing the finishes to be the main attraction.
As a third choice, Groenier proposes producing a cohesive feel in a mixed‐materials kitchen by picking "a super powerful color that pulls everything together." In this kitchen, by Excel inside Concepts as well as building in Lemoyne with Pennsylvania teal works to give an intentional, designed feel to pale wood floors also white cabinets in‐conjunction with black countertops.
Designer tip: In deciding whether to pick a bold color or a neutral, Groenier advocates that you consider how much wall area there is to paint. "If you had a large wall almost like a blank canvas in–conjunction with you wanted to accent that wall, that shall make sense," she says. "If you had a thin little strip like between a doorway together with a cabinet, that would be disconnected — it might not make any visual sense."
On the opposing side of the same kitchen, the creator chose a wall hue that is fairly close to the cabinet color, creating a monochrome effect. Miller normally advises choosing a wall hue that would make the cabinets stand elsewhere, though this is of course a matter of direct taste.
