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.

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.

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.
