    I just bought a condo and currently the kitchen is baby poop brown.
    I want to re-paint it, but can't decide on the color.
    The cabinets are currently 80's off white laminate with a light wood trim. I'm planning on eventually refacing them with a light wood door. The appliances are black. One wall has a soft transition to the dining room which is currently a dark red. I'm planning on putting up chair rail in the dinning room and painting the bottom half high gloss while with a boxed molding detail and leaving the top red. The flooring is a light laminate. Any suggestions on the kitchen color?

    If you are unsure, cover the walls in cling film first.

    That way if you do not like the colour, you can simply peel it off!

    Don't like the sound of that.

    What kind of natural light do you get? If none or very little, go lighter and brighter. My kitchen is haystack yellow; we get no natural light and it brightens the place up considerably. My wife and I cook a fair amount, so it's important to us.

    we are planning to redo our kitchen ( and our bathroom, our bedroom etc etc) and plan to have the same light coloured wood, probably beech doors.

    I plan to use different coloured tiles as a splash back behind the cooker and worktop in reds, oranges and yellows. Not sure about the rest of the kitchen but we'll probably go with a yellow colour. Anything darker and it will look too dark in our kitchen.

    Post a picture or two, it will help make right suggestion.

    I am in the middle of a complete house remodel and frankly I am running out of steam. Luckily all major decisions have already been made...and by me.

    Masterbath: before and during. I'll post the after pic if I make it to the end of it all.
