Dark grey kitchen cabinets

I love dark grey kitchen cabinets, but what color should I paint the walls? My kitchen: dining: and formal living are all open to one another.... I love the butcher block countertops also... Help me get a color scheme please!!

Hi Jamie. A picture of the kitchen would help -- eg is there a lot of wall, or only a little? I like soft yellow with dark grey -- buttery colours -- as well as sandy/light stone colours and some creams. But there are plenty of options. Pictures of the dining and living areas would also be useful so that one can look at the flow of colour. Are you thinking of painting in those areas too, or should the kitchen work with them as they are?

Light grey, dark grey and white might work perfectly well.
You can add a textured wall or bright glass splashback too (traditional or contemporary style). To avoid the cold feeling of greys and whites, add colours and natural surfaces that will bring a warm feel to the place.
Natural surfaces like wooden worktops combined with white ones, or quartz feature wall. (note: be careful when choosing wood as worktop!)
Bright colour can be add as kitchen utensils or a couple of red candle vases. Something that also connect with dinning area will be optimal.
Overall colour scheme depends on size, but I would say: Dark grey units + light grey or white walls + wooden/white worktop + red in details. Hope it helps.
