Cooking Up Colour : Choosing the Perfect Wall Paint for Your Kitchen

Hello, colour enthusiasts! It's Rachel from Farrelly & Co, and today we're delving into the world of kitchen wall paint. Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and selecting the perfect paint colour is crucial for creating a space that's both functional and visually stunning. Join me as we explore the best paint colours for kitchen walls and uncover some tips on painting over dark-coloured walls to elevate your culinary haven.

Best Colour for Kitchen Walls

The first step in choosing the perfect paint for your kitchen walls is deciding on the colour. The best colour for your kitchen walls depends on your personal style and the mood you want to create.

 If you're aiming for a clean, timeless look, you can't go wrong with classic white or off-white shades such as Bán or Trigg. These colours create a bright and open feel, making your kitchen look more spacious. Plus, they're incredibly versatile, allowing you to experiment with colourful kitchen accessories.

For a bold and contemporary look, consider using deep blues like Filly, olive greens such as Grands Boulevards, or rich greys like Subiaco. These shades can add a touch of sophistication and depth to your kitchen. Darker colours like navy or charcoal can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, perfect for those who love a warm and intimate kitchen vibe.

Painting Over Dark Colour Walls

Now, what if you're dealing with dark-coloured walls in your kitchen and want to switch things up? Don't worry; it's entirely doable! To paint over dark-coloured walls successfully, follow these steps:

Preparation: Start by cleaning the walls and filling any holes or cracks. Sand the surface lightly to create a smooth canvas for your new paint.

Primer: If your paint is not self-priming you will need to source a suitable primer for your walls. Luckily our paints are self-priming so they save you a step here!

Select the Perfect Paint: Opt for top-tier paint for walls, such as Farrelly & Co's premium collection, which offers an array of exquisite colours and exceptional coverage. For walls, we would recommend our Pure Matt or Silk Matt finish, and for your kitchen cabinetry an eggshell finish.

Use the Right Tools : Don't forget the importance of using the correct painting tools. Quality brushes and rollers will make a significant difference in achieving a professional finish. Check out our range here.

Multiple Coats: Be prepared to apply two or even three coats of paint to ensure full coverage. Allow each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next.

Kitchen Paint Colours

In the world of kitchen paint colours, the possibilities are endless. Some trendy choices include soothing pastels like mint green or soft blush for a refreshing vibe. If you're feeling adventurous, a pop of vibrant colour like terracotta or a bright green can make a statement as an accent wall or on your cabinets.

Ultimately, the best paint colour for your kitchen walls depends on your personal style and how you want your kitchen to feel. So, take your time, gather some Peel-and-Stick paint samples, and experiment with the different lighting throughout the day to find the perfect shade for your space.

Choosing the right wall paint for your kitchen is a creative journey that can transform your cooking haven into a place of inspiration. With the right paint for walls and a bit of passion, you'll create a kitchen that not only serves your culinary needs but also elevates your home's overall aesthetics. Happy painting!
