Change color of beadboard

I had my hall painted a light yellow and bead board painted white. I hate the white bead board. I don't want change the color of the wall, but I will change the color of the bead board. Should I paint it to match my kitchen cabinets? You can see into my kitchen in the picture. Or should I find a coordinating color? I also have brownish black accents in my kitchen. (furniture)
This is my hallway from my kitchen to bedrooms. I want to change color of bead board.

    Being this is the hallway I personally would change the color based on that and not the kitchen colors. I think your best bet would be to paint the bead board a lighter version of the hallway color.In my opinion it will be just enough color and not white.

    Hard to tell color of kitchen cabinets but they also appear white on top and weathered neutral on bottom. I like all colors to blend as far as the eye can see, so I would try to find something that works with the flooring and base cabinets brown tones. If not too difficult can you repaint hall to blend more with tile in kitchen and be more pleasing to your eye?

      @Cynthia kloeter No the cabinets are the same color top and bottom. They are a neutral. The island is more of a weathered look and blends well. I like the idea of brown or weathered look. Thank you for you ideas!

    Hi Janet Thanks for your idea's. I wouldn't paint the bead board a lighter yellow since the yellow on the walls are light to start with.

    Here's a thought: maybe a color wash over the bead board with the wall color. It would be just enough to tone down the white and blend with the walls.
  • Do a darker color otherwise it will just look like it does now. Since you have brown black accents, maybe go for one of those?? SW paint has a color called Urban Bronze. That would set off the yellow nicely. If you don't want to go that dark, then how about a darker yellow tone?

    i'm with beth...darker color on bottom....a t least 3 shades darker than what is is on the wall. there is not enough difference in the color value of what is there to pop. if you were to snap a pic, convert it to black and white- would you be able to tell that there are 2 colors on the wall?

    I like the idea mentioned earlier of making the beadboard weathered, so that it ties in to the weathered wood of the island. Making both bottom parts of kitchen and hall the same would be beautiful to me. You already have difference in the color of the cupboards to the color of the yellow wall.

    Before I went t all the trouble and expense of HAVING the bead board repainted, I would get some antiquing glaze, wipe it on the bead board on one wall (not the chair rail in my humble opinion) wipe it off (s it stays mostly in the grooves and weathers it some) and see if that does the trick. There are many tutorials to help. If you don't like it, THEN repaint.

    Paint it a darker yellow to anchor the pale yellow of the hallway.

    Shade of rusty bronze weathered with the yellow from the top color would look like a pro design.

    Try antiquing glaze just on the beadboard not trim, should tone it down just enough and blend with the kitchen also. Or you could try a colour wash to tone down the white a little. oh see others has also suggested these options. Good luck and post what you choose so we can see the results.

      @Nancy Flemming I don't think I would glaze the beadboard. I'm not experienced with a project like this. I have 3 1/2 walls to work on. Thanks for your input!
