5 Top Wall Colors For Kitchens With Oak Cabinets

1,008,177 Views
As a Home Stager & Color Consultant, I see a lot of Oak cabinets and my goal is to make them look fresh and updated. Sometimes it's as simple as choosing the right color for the walls.
If you have Oak or Honey toned wood cabinets and want to refresh your kitchen, consider painting the walls in today's neutrals, such as soft blue-grays, greens and neutral beiges.
There are hundreds of choices but these are my Top 5 Pics!
Top 5 Colors For Oak Cabinet Kitchens
In the 90's the look was to paint walls in various shades of yellow. But as you can see from this example below, it did nothing to enhance the wood and clashed with the tile.Via Forums: The Nest
Another popular color often used in Oak Cabinet kitchens is red. In my opinion this is too dark and once again just dates the space and makes it feel too dark.Via Buzzle
Benjamin Moore Sweet Spring is a perfect choice to offset the golden tones of the cabinetry.
If you like green, consider Benjamin Moore's Hazy skies, a beautiful soft green.
If you love Gray and would like to use it in your kitchen, Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay is a great choice.
Sherwin Williams Ancient Marble is another great choice and looks great with Stainless Steel appliances.
Benjamin Moore's Pleasant Valley is one of my go to colors when working with golden cabinetry.
This kitchen with Amber toned cabinets and stainless appliances looks fresh and updated with the addition of blue -gray walls.

    I have the oak cabinets and painted the walls Pewter Tankard (Sherwin Wms) about 3 months ago. It seems to be a silver green. Looks great with stainless appliances. The color is very near your pick!
