DIY: Paint the Kitchen Wall or Not?


Help! I don't know whether I should paint the kitchen or not...

I showed a quick iphone photo of the current situation. I know that color is going to be Calypso Blue and I know that I am painting the wall behind the bookcase, but I am just not sure if I should continue the paint into the kitchen. What do you all think?!!

Love the color- definitely paint the kitchen. It will make your white cabinets really pop while bringing cohesiveness to the whole place. Also, if that bookcase is opened backed (I think it is) you are really going to want to have your kitchen painted. Love it – post after pics! jennie t.

Love that color!

Do you have under counter lighting? I think it might get dark under the counters with your darker counter top and that color on the walls.

Can't wait to see the results, Happy Painting!

Definitely paint it! I really love that color too! I was apprehensive painting mine and went with gray - looks great with white cabinets! Good luck!

Oh, I think you should paint the kitchen too, especially with all the white cabinets. And now I would love it if you would come and weigh in on my powder room makeover question!!!

I think you should paint it. Add so much depth. Will there be a backsplash under the cabinetry?

I could go either way. I'd paint the main wall and then step back and see if it something feels missing. If so, go for the kitchen too!

I love this color...do it!!! The best thing about paint...it's guilt free, you can always always paint over it. Have fun!!!

I love the color yet continuing into the kitchen may be too much. How about looking at some glass tiles to put there instead?

I say go for painting it, too! It'll look great!

I think a complimentary backsplash tile would be better.

I would paint the dining wall that great color and either tile or paint the backsplash a lighter version of that color.

I'd carry the color through the kitchen, you'll be happy!

If a Kitchen wall is painted with different colors it will be amazing.
