For many people, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It's where you start your busy day and where you unwind with a good meal — and maybe a glass of wine — in the evening. It's where you make breakfast for your kids on busy school mornings and where you enjoy dinner with the special people in your life on the weekend. It’s also the spot for finding healthy snacks and comfort foods, depending on your mood. 

So, obviously your kitchen is a very special room, which means it deserves some very special consideration when it’s time for an upgrade. Choosing the perfect paint color is an ideal starting point — and an important one. While you can obviously select any color you want for your kitchen, HGTV recommends white, gray, blue, green, yellow or red. Let’s take a look at why each color works so well in the most important room in the house.
