I would like to paint one wall of my kitchen walls a deep red color.

Kitchen walls are white, kitchen cabinets are brown-nutmeg color, kitchen appliances and sinks are black and the kitchen is off white with gray veins. How would the kitchen look if I paint one wall a deep red shade...maybe the wall behind the dining table? Also, what color backsplash would look good?

    Eleanor, 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.

    I 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.

      P.S. Ultimately the decision is yours and what you will be happy with. All we can do is suggest thing to do. Go with what you want. I have no wall that I can paint in my kitchen, so I have a hard time envisioning a red wall or any other color. Any where I could paint has been taken up by cupboards, appliances or windows, so all I have is the little swaths above the windows that I could paint and I'm not going to waste paint on that.

    Clean, 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😉

    Eleanor, Here are a couple of shots of our (messy) red kitchen. We love it.

    I 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?
