The best color for a kitchen depends on the whole design of the house. Some of the most common kitchen colors include yellow, brown, pale powder, red, apple green, taupe, pink, cream, green, blue, grey, black, sage green and orange. Homeowners need to consult designers before choosing a particular color.

According to About.com, most designers seem to agree that yellow, neutrals and earthier colors are the best colors for the kitchen. This is because they complement the cabinets, reflect light and provide cheer in the kitchen. HGTV states that red, green, white, blue, gray and yellow shine well in kitchens.
