When it comes to remodeling kitchens, most people choose to play it safe, sticking to a well-trodden color palette of whites and neutrals and dark woods. But every once in a while a designer goes a little off model — with surprising and delightful results. If you're feeling brave and want to incorporate a little color into your next kitchen renovation, you'll find plenty to inspire you in these personality-packed examples.

Just a little neon is just the right touch in this kitchen from the Gravity Home Blog — quirky and colorful but not over the top. The blue light fixtures and pink table also help to give this very modern kitchen a very personal allure.

If you want to embrace bold color in the kitchen but want to try something relatively inexpensive, consider a colorful tile backsplash like this one in a kitchen from Rum Hemma.

If a colorful floor's not enough, try a colorful ceiling too, as in this cheerful kitchen from Hus & Hem.

The bright cabinets in a kitchen from Living Etc are just perfect (also lead image above). In a less restrained space, they might be over the top, but here they make a single bold color statement.
