In a small kitchen colour can be very important, this is because bright colours can make your kitchen seem much larger than it truly is. However having a single shade of colour can easily ruin the kitchen. This is because the kitchen needs to fit the rest of the home, and if your home gives and antique feeling then the kitchen should to. What I would do is, add a bit of patterns to your kitchen walls and make it match with the rest of the house. Remember the kitchen is the heart of the home so it should also match the exterior.
We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
We looked and planned the movements around the kitchen, what we wanted to do with the space and how we wanted the kitchen to function. So, one week, we ordered a 40 yard dumpster to be delivered to the house. We knew about these as when we moved in, we had filled five of these babies with junk from inside the house as well as the yard. We checked with each other hoping that we were really sane, picked up sledge hammers and started on the walls. What fun it was, tearing away what had become a kitchen that we did not like and could not stand.
