hmm im not sure which ones you should go with, you should paint them near the counter so you can see them with the cabnets, i dont think the floor matters too much..

Put up a poll. I like the terra cotta better, but it might be too strong. Fine in small doses, but all over the kitchen might be too much. Can you get a lighter shade of the same paint?

@KoiKove:  I agree, with the dark cabinets and the color of the floors, I think you can go a little lighter (in the teracotta shade). That would also give you some colorspace to maybe get a couple of pops of color in there for any decoration you might want to do.

Kitchens really tend to get “color-cluttered” fast unless you keep everything in cabinets/drawers, which makes them really great in terms of how easily you can change up the feel of the room (think seasonal produce in bowls, colorful dishtowels, your great mixer), but also makes it harder to go bold on anything bulky/not easily changeable.

I like the terra cotta colors over the darker reds 🙂

I woudn’t go dark as its already pretty dark in there with the cabinet color. You should paint some paper plates in your favorite colors and stand them all over the room (leaning against the backsplash,wall on the floor,etc) and look at it at all times of day. You’ll know pretty soon which ones suck the light out of the room and which ones make everything look better.

I’d lean towards the warmer colors too.
