Now you've chosen the design of your kitchen cabinets and worktops, the next move is to choose the materials and the colours of your walls. The most common materials for the kitchen walls are tiles, wallpaper and paint. Tiles will mostly be used as a backsplash above the hob and the worktop and they come in a lot of different shapes and sizes. Colour the tiles in into your design drawing and measure how much you need. After that you can calculate how much that will cost you.
Paint is the cheapest and fastest way to transform the feeling of your kitchen, wallpaper is more expensive, but can give just a little more character with its large variety of patterns. When you use wallpapers and paints for your kitchen walls, make sure these are especially made for the kitchen as these will be more resistant against humidity and will be easy to clean.
It depends on your own taste which colours you will choose, but contrasting colours work the best. The kitchen would look really bland if you would choose for cream kitchen units and cream paint on the walls. Kitchens also lend themselves especially for bold colour statements, as this is an activity area that is mostly used by daylight. Define for yourself which atmosphere you want to create in your kitchen and use the colour on your walls as the main contributor to this. After all, it is always easier to change the wall colour than your kitchen units!
