I would like to paint one wall of my kitchen walls a deep red color.
Barbara on Dec 30, 2017Eleanor, we had the same color scheme as you and we painted our entire kitchen red and we LOVE it. Same color cabinets, same color appliances, etc. Give it a try I bet you will love it too.Helpful Reply
Nancy Turner on Dec 30, 2017I would go with a backsplash that takes on some of the colors of your kitchen, white, brown, black, grey and just a little red, or use red as an accent color in your linens, some small appliances, cooking tools that are left out, knick knacks, etc.Helpful Reply

Carrie on Dec 31, 2017Clean, prime, then use a deep dark blue or grey before you ever paint with reds. If you skip first steps you will have streaks and looks terrible in different light.Wish I'd known that sooner😉Helpful Reply
Barbara on Dec 31, 2017Eleanor, Here are a couple of shots of our (messy) red kitchen. We love it.Helpful Reply
Eleanor Moyza on Dec 31, 2017I Love it! So your accent wall is white?!One of my friends said to me that if I painted one wall red, that it would look crappy! I told her she was crazy because she never wanted to take a risk with paint. I told her that paint can always be changed.Barbara, how does your family and friends feel about your red kitchen?what color is your backsplash?I see you live inBuckeye, AZ ...Hi Neighbor! 😘💕😄🤓Helpful Reply

Would it devalue my fireplace to paint it out in white? It is currently gray brick.
We have built-ins on either side of our gray brick fireplace, and I would love to paint the fireplace out in white. However, my husband feels it would be a bad idea.
