Need help choosing kitchen wall color!!

June 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I want to paint my kitchen walls a shade of grey that goes with the new dark grey laminate flooring and the countertop that has hues of taupe and medium grey in it. I have tried a couple of shades already, but the first was too blue-grey, which didn't look right, and the second is too pale, too 'institutional grey'. I don't want the color to be too dark either, more on a medium shade but definitely something warmer. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

Revere Pewter is a light warm grey. By Benjamin moore HC 172. This color may work for you. Most paint stores will have sample pots. Pick a few and bring them home and see how they look in the different light of your kitchen .

My kitchen is Abalone from Benjamin Moore. It's a taupey grey. Silver Fox is a good one too, a bit darker.

It may be hard to tell by the photo but the floor is a dark grey, but with an undertone of taupe in it. The countertop is a greige color, you can see the corner of it in the photo. Right now the walls are a light grey which just looks awful. I would like a nice warm grey, or even a shade of taupe that would go with floor and the counterop.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, I am considering Silver Fox, just wish it was a bit lighter.

BM Abalone is the lighter shade of Silver Fox. I have Abalone in my kitchen, and Silver Fox in the adjoining family room.
