Safety First

If you're planning to create a country kitchen, there are certain paint shades you should plan to incorporate in your design. White, yellow, light blue, red and beige shades can all create a country vibe in your cooking space.

You can't go wrong with white in the kitchen, especially when you're going for a country look. With so many whites to choose from, it's hard to know which ones to use. For a country vibe, look for ones that have warmth and don't feel cold and stark. Creamy whites or those with a touch of beige can help soften your space and make it feel more inviting.

Yellow is a color that's commonly used in kitchens, but for a country vibe, you'll want light shades of yellow. Calming and serene, these hues resemble fresh sticks of butter and have hints of cream in them. Try these lighter yellows on your cabinets or walls and pair them with light blues to really enhance the country theme.

Light blues are a wonderful choice in kitchens because of their calming effect, but they work especially well in country kitchens. Choose powdery or grayish blues and pair them with yellow or white accents for a warm and peaceful effect. Medium and dark blues could also work, but make sure to keep the room as light and fresh as possible. Robin's egg blue also looks pretty in a country kitchen, and it can be paired with distressed woods and creamy whites and yellows while darker shades such as navy are better in more modern spaces.

Red is a color that often comes to mind when thinking about kitchens, and it works well in country kitchens also. Instead of using a bright and bold red, look for a more muted one. Choose reds that resemble brick or have a more washed-out appearance so they're not too overpowering, and think beyond your walls. Red looks great on cabinets, chairs, tables and other areas of the kitchen. Looks for reds that are reminiscent of antique barns and crisp red apples for a no-fail combination, pair these shades with white cabinets and accents.

Mint or other pastel shades of green also make sense in a country kitchen. Pair these soothing shades with light cabinetry and countertops for a calming vibe. Avocado or moss green also work in country kitchens and can create a shabby chic look when paired with distressed wood and a tiled backsplash.

If you prefer a neutral with a bit more depth, consider using an oatmeal or wheat brown shade. Not as stark as white, these beige shades pair well with yellow, blue, red, and green.
