Having the walls completely white will reflect maximum light in the kitchen. Alternatively, you may have a light shade of yellow or green too.
Tip: Try to have the lightest colors in the kitchen as dark colors absorb light and heat, thus making it stuffy and hot.
In the end, your home should be having a combination of all colors but at the same time you should avoid an overdose of any color. An ideal home design will consist of light shades on the walls accessorized with different accent colors.
