For many of us, the kitchen is the hub of our house. It is the place for rela, socializing and generally passing time. Over the years kitchen styles have changed dramatically. We have seen the kooky colors of the 60’s evolve into the rustic french farmhouse chic. From minimalistic straight lines to smooth seamless curves, our kitchens are now designed to be practical yet inviting, functional and somehow cosy.
Kitchens are a costly room in the house to redo. Designing and fitting a new kitchen can set you back thousands and it can bring a lot of stress to you and your daily routine. That being said, there are many ways to revamp your current kitchen without replacing everything, and you will be surprised at how much of a difference a lick of paint and new accessories can make. So we have compiled a list of 10 kitchen paint color ideas to inspire your next kitchen makeover!

Originating from the dark blue officers worn by the British Navy and the way it contrasted with the white of their shirts. Navy blue is a timeless classic and will bring a hint of sleek sophistication to any kitchen. (works great with white cupboards and accessories)
2. Rich Black Kitchen Paint Color
