    Color schemes and painting ideas for your kitchen

    When homeowners decide to repaint and redecorate their kitchens, the driving force is frequently a desire to ‘brighten up the space.’ Dark wood cabinets, along with typically smaller and fewer windows, have a way of making many kitchens look cramped and constraining rather than stimulating and welcoming.

    If you’re in the mood to update your daily preparing-eating-conversation space, you've come to the right place to get fresh painting ideas. So feast your eyes on these color schemes to brighten your kitchen's appearance and please your family and friends … and you!
