While I do really adore the minimalism that we often see in more contemporary interior designs, it often seems that people are becoming more and more afraid of color! While beige is versatile and white is tidy and black is sleek, sometimes I long for the power of red, the regality of purple, and the freshness of green.
If much of your house is using more subdued colors – which does help create a feeling of relaxation and serenity – but you too long for some pops of color in your house, the kitchen is the perfect place to really go wild with the shades and tones!
Since the kitchen is a room that almost demands brightness and imagination, it is the perfect room to play around and go a little nuts. That’s why we’ve created this fun and funky collection that is showcasing kitchens with super bold color schemes. Hopefully here if you find all of the color inspiration you need for your own home improvement projects.
1. The Turquoise Tank Multicolored Kitchen
Layout: We’re starting off this collection very strong with a super spacious and uniquely shaped kitchen. We have a ton of storage and a double fridge on the back wall, and interestingly a hexagon shaped kitchen island in the centre. A ton of floor space lets you know that you can have more than one cook in the kitchen without losing your mind.
Color Scheme: We’re starting off gently with this color scheme. While the main features of the room are boasting neutral tones and wooden cabinets, we get a really nice pop of color from the turquoise bit of wall. It feels extra dramatic especially beside those huge bay windows.
Features: This is a really exceptionally designed kitchen with everything you could ever need. We see a camouflaged double refrigerator boasting the same woodwork as the cabinetry, an dishwasher, microwave, and gas stove built right into the kitchen island, and two sinks. Not to mention an absolute heap of cabinets and drawers.
Accessories: This room is very minimally decorated, just letting the features of the kitchen shine. We see this with the glass upper cabinets to show off your best dishware, and a neat little fruit basket to add some more pops of color. Sensational!
2. The Colorful Craftsman Kitchen
Layout: We’re going strong with this kitchen, featuring a gorgeous U shape and a generously sized kitchen island in the centre. This kitchen means business but also pleasure – meaning that it has enough storage to keep any appliance hoarder happy, but it’s also gorgeous enough to make you happy every time you enter it.
Color Scheme: Orange and blue is one of my favorite contrasting color combinations, and it’s done in a very modest way in this room. While we have a gorgeous sky blue color for the kitchen island, the orange accent wall is far away enough that it’s not an obnoxious statement. Where it all comes together is in the backsplash tiling where both colors come together in perfect harmony.
Features: Traditional kitchens always make me feel happy, since they often incorporate some really gorgeous cabinetry work and simple features. We see a camouflaged fridge and camouflaged oven, as well as a top of the line gas stove with red knobs for an extra little color boost.
Accessories: This kitchen is just brimming with personality and colors pops, but I love how they’re all coming in natural ways. The color pops come from vases of fruit and of fresh flowers, bringing texture and life to the room. Glorious!
3. The Shades of Blue Multicolored Kitchen
Layout: Here we see a really neatly shaped kitchen featuring a smaller U shape for the main bulk of it, but a wonderful custom kitchen island that features to rounded ends for lower seating, and an elevated breakfast bar. It kind of divides the room into the prepping area and the hosting area which I love!
Color Scheme: This is a super poppy color scheme here with bright green apple accents contrasting more of an aquamarine blueish green color. Each one of these colors are pretty dramatic to use on their own, so using a combination for them is completely wild!
Features: This lovely kitchen features the best of the best stainless steel appliances to make sure the user knows that they’re in a modern kitchen. Contemporary shapes accentuate this concept even further.
Accessories: While this kitchen is currently a little bit un-lived in, we get a couple of silver accessories accessories to create yet another dramatic contrast.

4. The Red & Green Country Kitchen
Layout: Here we have a classic U shaped kitchen with a generously sized kitchen island in the centre. While classic in shape, it’s exceptional in its sheer size and design. More than enough room, a traditional island with wonderful amounts of shelving space, but the coolest part of this room is the cozy little breakfast nook bench that’s built right into the room.
Color Scheme: Here we have a more subdued color combination with cherry red and olive green, but they are still contrasting colors that make quite a statement. Beautiful hardwood floors help offset the color contrasting to create something that’s rather cozy.
Features: This is a very traditional kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a gas stove top built right in to the kitchen island (which is a great feature for hosting), some frosted windows on the upper cabinets, and some sweet little breakfast stools.
Accessories: This room is elevated but its accessories. Wood framing for the windows is gorgeous, a vase of fresh flowers is always a lovely touch in a kitchen, and lovely amber hanging lights over the kitchen island are an added bit of charm.

5. The Rustic Vintage Kitchen
Layout: This is an exceptionally lovely kitchen with a classic L shaped layout and huge kitchen island in the centre. We have some really stunning craftsman work throughout all of the cabinets and a faux finish hood vent that leads us up to a gorgeous high ceiling decorated with wooden beams.
Color Scheme: This is one of my favorite color schemes. The designer chose still rather bright colors but they become more subdued thanks to some shabby chic distressing. Pistachio, mustard, ocean blue, and royal blue all come together and create a bright and beautiful kitchen space.
Features: This room has a really lovely vintage feel with that gorgeously retro oven, patterned tiles for the backsplash, and distressed decoration.
Accessories: This colorful kitchen is accessorized with beautiful kitchen accessories, with a lovely open upper shelf adorned with glassware, beautiful ceramic pots, and some clippings from monstera plants. Amazing!

6. The Modern n’ Bright Kitchen
Layout: A wonderful example of an all encompassing kitchen brought together with a kitchen island that has a double edged breakfast bar. Though in a modestly sized room, it still feels expansive because of the way it’s situated.
Color Scheme: This kitchen is a representation of a space that is using the perfect amount of white and neutral tones, warm wood, and then bright colors to amp everything up. The color scheme is everywhere: from the cabinets and backsplash tile, the facade on the kitchen island counter, all the way to the matching hand towels.
Features: This is a highly modern kitchen complete with a stainless steel dishwasher, state of the art gas stove, a stainless steel fridge, and black accents found in the faucet, kettle, and other little aspects.
Accessories: This kitchen is very nicely accessorized with a vase of lilies, red pops of color in the pot and pepper grinder.

7. The L Shaped Wonder Multicolor Kitchen
Layout: This lovely and modestly sized L shaped kitchen is completely complete with plenty of lower cabinets and minimal upper cabinets to ensure it doesn’t feel too cramped. A large kitchen island provides extra counter space and some great seating space for hosting.
Color Scheme: I think the way color was incorporated into this kitchen is very cleverly done. It’s common to use a colorful backsplash in a kitchen, and this shade of blue is particularly lovely, while using a dramatic teal color for the ceiling is a less obvious but more classy way to incorporate two bright colors.
Features: Though a little bit on the smaller side, the multicolored kitchen space has everything you need with a stainless still double door fridge, a small gas stove top, and an under-mount sink.
Accessories: This room is very nicely accessorized with a black chandelier with bare lightbulbs, open shelving to show off your best dishes, and little white vases hosting potted plants. Using black for the cabinets and white for the countertops is a great way to add contrast without adding more color.
This modern and marvellous room was designed by Studio Sven.
8. The Block Color Kitchen
Layout: This is a great galley kitchen layout that is super open and spacious. The back wall features a ton of storage and counter space, while a kitchen island features extra counter space and a couple of seats for bagels in the morning.
Color Scheme: This is a really neat way to incorporate color. It’s rather rare to see a colorful floor like this one, but it’s a lovely shade of key lime. Cabinets come in both dark blue and deep yellow – which are wonderfully contrasting colors – but the light gray countertop and white backsplash are just the right amount of neutral so that the room doesn’t become overwhelming.
Features: Though it happens in just one row, we have more than enough to keep a kitchen perfect with a small under-mount sink, an electric stovetop, and a double oven in the back sitting next to a camouflage refrigerator.
Accessories: Though the only accessory we currently see in the room is in the lovely three white hanging lanterns, the room could really do with some vases of fresh flowers and colorful kitchen appliances on the countertops.
This wonderful kitchen design comes from R2 Studio Architects.
9. The Primary Colors Kitchen
Layout: Here we have a lovely L shaped kitchen that’s is super open and airy. Lower cabinets offer tons of storage space, while wooden upper cabinets give a rustic warmth that we always look for in every room, especially the kitchen.
Color Scheme: A color scheme that is using both neutral tones and pops of bright colors all come together to create something beautiful. Starting with neutral tones with have a classic hardwood floor and sandalwood cabinets above, which are brightened up with eggplant cabinets, teal blue tiles for the backsplash, and bright green paint for inner shelving. Smart!
Features: This is a new but modest kitchen that features stainless steel appliances like a fridge, dishwasher, oven, and faucet. One of my favorite parts of the kitchen is the countertops that feature a concrete mix that’s speckled with colorful little blips. Adorable.
Accessories: The room is minimally decorated, which feels fine especially because of all of the bright colors in the room. My favorite decoration is the orange glass lamp shade hanging over the under-mount sink.

10. The Family Friendly Kitchen
Layout: This kitchen kind of reminds me of what a kid would imaginatively design, but executed by a professional. We have a classic L shape but it’s been beefed up by a wild amount of storage, with lower drawers, and two levels of upper cabinets. A little dining table in the middle can be used for hosting or for extra counter space!
Color Scheme: While the navy blue backsplash and delicate yellow cabinets aren’t too bold of a color scheme, the room becomes extra fun once you notice the extravagantly colored dining table with a pink frame and bright yellow chairs.
Features: This is a really cute family kitchen with nothing too flashy or over the top, just a traditional kitchen with a stainless steel dishwasher and fridge, and a gas stove.
Accessories: This particular kitchen has such a personal flare to it in its decorations, with welcoming place sets for the dining table, some sweet little accessories, a happy basil plant in the kitchen (it’s so great to grow your own herbs!) and some light orange hanging lamps.
This homey kitchen was designed by Morse Constructions.
11. The Bright n Right Multicolor Kitchen
Layout: Spacious and welcoming are the two words I’d first use to describe this kitchen. All of the main features are found on the back wall with a very generously sized kitchen island in the middle for some extra counter space and bar stools. We have some extra fun seating with a built in bench on the back wall. So cute!
Color Scheme: There seems to be a ton of green and blue color schemes in this collection, maybe because they aren’t completely contrasting colors but they still provide a very dramatic effect when they’re put together. Aquamarine and off green work wonders together, especially when they are off set by cement floors and wooden cabinets and shelves.
Features: Stunning cabinetry work is topped with a gray countertop, and the green accent wall is adorned with light stained wooden floating shelves. A huge under-mount sink just begs dish washing, while a stainless steel set up with a gas stove and matching hood vent is professional grade.
Accessories: The accessories in this room are just so neat and tidy I don’t know what to do! The vases on the top shelf match the blue backsplash perfectly, while the light feature hanging over the dining table is just the right amount of industrial flare.

12. The Artwork Kitchen
Layout: This is such a fun kitchen! The classic U-shape is just the right size – it’s not so cramped that you would get frustrated, but just wide enough that you can access every part of the kitchen within arms reach. This type of ergonomic design makes for a very seamless meal prepping experience.
Color Scheme: The color scheme in this room is really a work of art. While the mean features of the room are neutral colors – like the brown floor, white walls, and stainless steel countertops – each cabinet is painted a different color to create a super fun and unique effect.
Features: This is the perfect kitchen to me, with industrial stainless steel countertops and an awesome faucet, a gas stove with an oven and a heating drawer, and plenty of storage space both in the drawers, cabinets, and upper shelves.
Accessories: This kitchen is beautifully accessorized simply with all of the kitchen appliances and tools one could ever need. I find that this is the best way to decorate a kitchen: simply by having beautiful utensils.

13. The Many Colors Kitchen
Layout: Here we have a quaint little L shaped kitchen with some kitschy little floating shelves, and a higher set kitchen island in the centre that can double as an extra bit of counter space, as well as a little nook for some extra breakfast bar seating. This kitchen isn’t too big, it isn’t too small, it’s just the right size.
Color Scheme: This is a particularly fun color scheme as we have varying colors found all throughout the room. We have bright orange stools, a lilac kitchen island countertop, blue lower cabinets, a raspberry countertop, patterned upper cabinets, and of course a boldly green ceiling. There isn’t really a color scheme going on, just a wild array of bright colors.
Features: While the wild colors might make you think this is a play kitchen, it ensures you are set up with a huge under-mount sink, a gas stove with stainless steel hood vent, dishwasher, and ample storage in the cabinets and drawers.
Accessories: Since so many bright colors have been used, you really don’t need to think about decorating too hard. Open shelving turns your dishware into decoration, while a bowl of fruit and a couple of fun hanging lamps will do the trick!

14. The Elegant Yet Fun Kitchen
Layout: While many of the kitchens we’ve seen so far have been more on the modern, fun, and quirky side, this beautiful L shaped kitchen proves that having pops of color as the main event in the kitchen doesn’t necessarily mean that it can’t be classic and classy at the same time. This kitchen is a really gorgeous size with a very generous kitchen island, and kitchen features spanning the entire length of the room.
Color Scheme: While so much of the room is white, we get some gorgeous colors found both in the emerald backsplash for the kitchen island, and the exceptionally lovely wallpaper with a floral pattern. I honestly adore the concept of using wallpaper as the bold feature, and allowing the rest to be simple and bright.
Features: This room really has everything you need and more, with tons of lower cabinet space (which leaves tons of room to play with on the upper half of the room, a huge gas stove with six elements, and a lovely rustic kitchen island with a wooden countertop and built in sink.
Accessories: The accessories in this room are really where things shine their brightest. Fresh produce on the counter indicates that this space is used well, while floating shelves give you a place to display your favorite dishes. Two chandeliers hanging above the island match the elegant feeling of the room and add a unique shape.

15. The Bold Kitchen
Layout: This is a really stunning galley kitchen. One of the larger rooms we’ve seen, this incredible room boasts a galley layout with amazing appliances on either side, and a kitchen island on either side. This room is definitely more for prepping than it is for hosting, but with the impeccable design, it should be shown off!
Color Scheme: This is probably one of the more dramatic color schemes that we’ve seen here as well, with incredibly contrasting colors in the bright red main wall, and bright green accent wall. If that weren’t enough on it’s own, the drama is extended to the floor with diagonally arranged checkerboard floor, which happens to be one of my favorite things ever!
Features: While the kitchen has a really artsy design, don’t be fooled: this is an industrial grade set up. We have a double gas stove feature with a huge hood vent, tons of lower storage space, and one of the most beautiful farmhouse style sinks I’ve ever seen. The one thing I’m surprised about is that dinky little refrigerator in the corner!
Accessories: This room is not only accessorized with its kitchen appliances and utensils, but with bright bowls of fruit, kitschy statues of roosters, wooden vases of ornamental grasses, and framed still life paintings. This room just feels right.

16. The Plaid Kitchen
Layout: This is a very modest set up of kitchen with a single wall kitchen feature and an adorable little dining set in the middle of the room that can double as a space for hosting and for some extra prepping space if need be.
Color Scheme: This is probably one of the more subdued color schemes of the room, but the color choices made are superbly chosen. Starting with the floor, this plaid checkerboard design is gorgeous with cream, mauve, and burnt orange, while the upper part of the room is beautifully designed with blue cabinets, and red and yellow upper cabinets.
Features: This entirely custom kitchen is so beyond what you would regularly see. Starting with the gorgeous lower cabinets with golden trim, the patterned tiled backsplash, and Smeg fridge that would literally make any food lover squeal with delight. The midcentury modern inspired dining set really hits the vibe of the room home.
Accessories: The accessories in the space are being used as another way to incorporate some beautiful coloring, in the vases filled with fresh plants and fun little kitchen accessories all over the place. This is a beautiful room to the very last detail.
