Help! SW Paint Choices for North Facing Kitchen?

3 years ago
last modified: 3 years ago

The project is painting my north-facing kitchen. Nice size but lots of brown cabinets and just a couple windows.

My research pointed towards Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige-6106 as a good color to go with, but after painting test samples on all four walls, it seems a shade darker than what's on their now and I can't decide if I like it. The next color down from it is Divine White-6105. Is this also a good choice for a north-facing room? I plan to get a sample of it as well.

In attached photo, which makes my kitchen look way brighter than it is, the Kilim Beige painted sample is below the star left of "Welcome". The current wall color is generic paint from Walmart 12 years ago. Looking to freshen up the space. In front of island out of view is the kitchen table. On wall to left of island, also not seen, are the sink, windows and door.
