Add the perfect finishing touch to your kitchen with paint colour that highlights and brings together the existing features of the space.

Kitchens have several fixed elements, including the countertop, backsplash, cabinets and flooring. While neutrals are very popular for kitchens, there are also opportunities to bring accent colours into the room—even a small dose of colour makes a big impact. Benjamin Moore’s Regal® Select Interior paints offer fresh colour for your kitchen along with superior durability and washability no matter what sheen you choose.

Our tips for choosing a kitchen scheme

Colour Guidance

Cabinets take up the most visual space, so let them guide you to the best colours for your kitchen. If your cabinets are finished in dark or medium wood, look to colours that will create balance by using lighter hues. White and pale wood cabinets pair well with many colours, particularly cool blues, greys and greens for a look that is updated and works for both modern and traditional schemes.

Cabinet Colour Trends

For a long time, white has dominated kitchen design. But it may have to share the trend spotlight as pale or muted grey, blue and green cabinet colours shake things up a bit. If you’re not ready for a complete cabinet overhaul, consider a fresh coat of paint on lower cabinets or highlight an island with a different colour. This will add some visual interest and a layer of detail, especially when the primary cabinet colour is white and you use a deeper colour on an island.

Go for the Bold

In an open floor plan, the best kitchen palette complements colours in adjoining living areas for eye-pleasing colour continuity. Since wall space is more limited, choose a colour option that will complement not only the kitchen, but also adjoining rooms. Need more inspiration? Pull a colour you like from your countertop, backsplash or even a favourite upholstery fabric for a paint colour that will visually link the two spaces.

Sprinkle on Colour

Add some visual spice to a kitchen filled with neutral countertops and cabinets: paint one element with a strong, contrasting colour. Because of its central location, a dramatic kitchen island can bring a room into focus. Or define one of the activity areas, like a breakfast nook or work area, with paint colour. Choose paints with a subtle sheen to enhance the effect such as an eggshell finish.
