The kitchen tends to be a place where people play it safe with color. Whites and greys predominate, with a little bit of soft, subdued color, if you're lucky. But a few homeowners have gone against the grain and embraced bold, balls-to-the-wall colors in their kitchens. Here are few examples of such kitchens, and a few ideas for how you can get the look.
This kitchen from Bungalow 5 rocks a Barbie-pink countertop, which is a lovely contrast to the walnut cabinetry.
This brilliant kitchen from Domaine Home makes for a pleasing pop of color in a minimal home.
Painting just the lower cabinets works, too. We're loving this sunny yellow from Skona Hem.
This kitchen from Domino manages to surprise with a brightly colored window frame.
In this kitchen from Domino, a pink backsplash and dramatic lighting amp up the drama.
If you're feeling especially bold, you could opt for an entire kitchen covered top-to-toe in a striking hue. From Home & Decor.
This house, from Casa Vogue, takes an approach that's a bit more subtle but no less exciting.
Another thing we're loving? Brightly colored appliances, like these spotted on Home Bunch.
And finally, proof that you don't have to go too crazy to get crazy color into your kitchen — just a painting will do. Bonus points, of course, if it matches the oven. From Escapade.
