Color in the Kitchen: Kitchen Bars that Pop!

Whether it's the enticing smells that lure you, or the sizzle of a simmering pot, the kitchen is always a popular place. There's something inviting about the casual convenience of pulling up a stool for a front row seat to the action. Since this month's all about incorporating color, check out some kitchen bars that pack a punch with color!

People love to gather in the kitchen, often creating a crowd in the midst of a cooking frenzy. A kitchen bar welcomes guests, while also maintaining a barrier for the cook. More than entertaining, the bar provides a place for a casual meal with a quick cleanup. As we move away from formal dining rooms, eat-in kitchens offer a compromise that still encourages eating together in a central location.

Whether you have the option of creating a kitchen bar, or just enjoy dreaming about it, these interiors provide some inspiring ways to boost your kitchen with a kick of color. From painting a salvaged bar stool, to refinishing the cabinets, there are an endless number of ways to incorporate color.
