Colorful Kitchen Designs

Although the trend in kitchen design leans toward dark surfaces and muted color palettes, some homeowners march to the beat of a different drummer. Love bright color? Take a peek at these stylish kitchen spaces from Rate My Space users.

  • Bold Blue

    Rate My Space user Ambera2 remodeled her kitchen to match a blue KitchenAid® mixer that sits on her countertop. The wall color complements the tiled backsplash, and the island was repainted a shade to match the great room, adjacent to the kitchen.

  • Your Royal Blueness

    Royal-blue barstools and glass pendant lights punctuate the transitional kitchen of Rate My Space user OutoftheBox. Two-tone cabinets in maple and dark cherry, a glass-tile backsplash and a dancing workshop island topped with blue-speckled black granite complete the look.

  • Big Red

    Rate My Space user Brenovate combined three rooms in her 95-year-old cottage to create one big, bold kitchen. The original sink (the only salvaged item from the original kitchen) served as the inspiration for the bright-red color scheme.

  • Vivid Red

    Rate My Space user NoSo makes smart use of square footage by combining a kitchen, bar, library and dining room in one small space. Bright red shelving and storage space and eye-catching chandeliers dress up this cooking and entertaining area.

  • Sunny Yellow

    The bright, cheery wall color takes center stage in this clean and uncluttered kitchen by Rate My Space user jeannekhoe1_6310912. The focal point, a hanging light fixture by Kevin Reilly, adds a rustic touch. “I searched for two years to find the perfect fixture and this is it.”

  • A Touch of Yellow Charm

    Walls in a faux finish add charm and cozy character to this oversized kitchen. Rate My Space user Leeser completed the design with Ubatuba granite countertops and under-cabinet lighting.

  • Soothing Green

    This kitchen by Rate My Space user Karma518 boasts a host of amenities: an eat-in island, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, cherry cabinets, an office nook and a pantry and bar with a wine fridge. Yet the soothing green wall color steals the show.

  • Energetic Green

    A mix of eclectic and modern, this high-energy kitchen by Rate My Space user Schatzl features a rainbow of colors: bright green walls, a blue ceiling and interior cabinets, plum upper cabinets, black lower cabinets and black doors painted with chalkboard paint. A flat-screen TV on the back wall is used to display Schatzl’s collection of Flickr photos.

  • Spicy Orange

    A gut renovation of Rate My Space user mvbarlow’s kitchen inspired the warm wall color, chosen to complement the Tuscan Old World decor theme. Features include a tumbled-marble backsplash, granite countertops, distressed cabinetry, pendant lighting, large Italian-tile flooring and a vineyard mural above the cooktop.

  • Warm Orange

    Rate My Space user victoriansandy was challenged with updating a Victorian kitchen in a circa-1884 home after Hurricane Ike swept five feet of water into the space. Along with the warm color palette, this revamped space features a glass-tile backsplash, tumbled-marble walls, two-tone cabinetry, Brazilian koa flooring and a faux mantel over the stove – a nod to the home’s six fireplaces.
