We just bought a house which is in nice shape but with a 1988 kitchen. Oak cupboards and black appliances.
We're not at a point where we can re-do the whole kitchen but I need some suggestions on a paint color that would help it out. Any suggestions?
Black and white glass tiles as a backsplash would look nice on that one wall.

It's a blank slate so, if I were you, I'd go with whatever I liked and that flowed into the other rooms of my home.
You could certainly add color with an inexpensive porcelain tile backsplash. If the budget's extremely tight, you can paint a backsplash, too.
You could also do a valance or simple curtain over the window. If you select a patterned fabric first, you can easily use that to select towels, select other accessories and match paint.
The hardware could also be easily (and inexpensively) updated. That would go a long way towards updating the space, IMHO.
Good luck with your project!
P.S. The lighting looks o.k. but a little builders' special - I'd probably change it out. Same thing for the accordion folding doors - that appears to be Lowe's (or HD) white. As soon as you decide on a color scheme, you could easily paint them.
BTW, if you selected the lighting or doors, don't worry about it. I realize everyone's pressed for time!This message has been edited. Last edited by: AguaBella,
New hardware on the cabinets would do a lot to modernize your effect.
Although my cabinetry is a different style and my appliances now white, the age of the cabinetry (house) and stain appear the same. I once had a predominately dark green floral paper in my kitchen, but have since stripped it and painted it in a warm, med. green. If memory serves, it's BM's Potpourri. I will try to verify that tho. In any event, factor in the room's lighting. My kitchen faces SE so I get abundant sunshine. Blues and greens or variations compliment honey oak which is warm.
Yes, I believe my recollection was correct. Here "she" is...
I never actually answered your question which was mainly about paint.
I would likely do those walls in a mushroom grey.
