7 Inspiring Colorful Kitchens
We love a white kitchen. There’s something about the crisp, clean look of a snow-white kitchen that feels so upmarket and contemporary. But there’s nothing wrong with a splash of color, either. In fact, we think colorful kitchens have gotten a bad reputation for looking dated and overly rustic. We’ve collected our favorite non-white kitchens to show you just how chic they can be—keep scrolling to see our picks!

This compact galley kitchen feels sophisticated and thoughtful thanks to the tone-on-tone blue hues. We love the inclusion of wallpaper, seldom seen in kitchens. The metallic print gives the space a glam vibe, and the pattern makes the space feel larger. Sticking with simple white countertops and a large farmhouse sink keeps the clutter to a minimum.
We're suckers for classic hunter green. It's timeless and immediately transports us to the English countryside. And while it can sometimes feel a tad dowdy, contemporary gold pendant lamps, a geometric backsplash, and unexpected vinyl barstools work to create a look that gives this old school color modern, fresh appeal.

With greens, blues, and yellows, the walls of this kitchen are striking. And yet it manages to be both colorful and subdued at the same time - no easy feat. There's so much to love about this kitchen, from the vintage gold bar stools to the cerused wood accents, but it's the walls that take it from a utilitarian room to a fabulous and chic living space.
This kitchen is a study in color theory. We love the combination of the green cabinetry with bold peach walls and eggplant backsplash. Adding black cabinets prevents the colors from overwhelming the space.
This beautiful light-blue kitchen manages to use a traditional color in a fresh, modern way. The unadorned cabinetry, sleek appliances, and heavily veined marble backsplash work to achieve this effect. Parquet floors and vintage stools bridge the gap between old and new.
Varying shades of rich blue hues create a beautifully contemporary, happy kitchen that feels sleek yet warm. Mosaic tiles reflect light while low shelving decorated sparingly coupled with floor-to-ceiling windows help to keep the narrow kitchen from feeling too small.
It’s hard to pull off the inclusion of so many different hues and still feel like the eye has a place to rest, but this kitchen manages to pull it off. The blue and white patterned walls manage to create a surprisingly neutral foundation for bold punches of color and choice metallic accents. The use of different hues of pink creates a sense of consistency without being too matchy-matchy.
