Monochromatic pastel colors work great for smaller kitchen spaces while larger kitchens require a strong presence of fire and earth tones. Brushed, marbled or "sponged" paint styles work great in the kitchen. Use high gloss paints that are easy to wipe clean and maintain. A dull finish will not give you that much needed energy in the morning.
