I think a red kitchen with brown cabinets would be really dark.  If you’re not up for painting both the walls and cabinets, maybe you could leave the walls white but paint the cabinets red, that way you’d have some good bright color to balance the red.

I agree that red walls with brown cabinets would probably be too dark.  Unless you have a lot of windows in your kitchen which doesn’t seem very likely.

I think yellow or green could work.  Yellow is very sunny!  My dad has his kitchen as lime green with white cabinets and it actually looks really nice!

Some people like a dark kitchen, with colors I mean. Windows would definitely help for light! I think we will end up doing a dark kitchen (someday) with a dark golden yellow and dark brown cabinets.

You can add red decorations maybe!

I see you already decided against red, but just wanted to affirm your decision… red makes you hungry! Haha, I just read an article on it the other day. It’s why so many fast food places use it.

It might be dark but Ive always wanted a red kitchen too!  Our friends painted their kitchen walls red but they had a lighter wood for cabinets.  I cant paint our kitchen and dont know if I would once we get a house, but I have all the red appliances and towels 🙂

I may be the minority here, but we have a white kitchen and I am NOT a fan!  It requires constant cleaning to look pretty and clean!!

I think the red could be really fun and adorable. Here’s some pictures I found:

I love the first picture. That is like, my dream kitchen. I love the retro feel.
