Kitchens, at one time, were once considered the heart of a home as families spent most of their time gathered in the room, sharing meals and making memories. Today, the hustle and bustle of modern society as well as the variety of restaurant options have pushed the kitchen to the back burner. With this shift, kitchens have become less of the focal point for many homes, becoming dull without character and lacking many features. However, we found 10 striking colorful kitchen designs that give us hope for all kitchens. We hope you’ll be inspired too to create a breathtaking kitchen that brings family and friends together for years to come.

Why pick one color when there are already so many you can choose? The blue cabinets are a stark contrast against the red wall, creating an interesting look. The wood floors and the wood cabinetry are subtle elements of the design that are enhanced by stainless steel nobs and appliances as well as black countertops.
When we look at this kitchen, we can’t help but think of a bumbles with the black and yellow striped wall. And, let’s be honest, the design works well!

Our favorite detail is in the added paneling around the light fixture that works to finish the look.
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, lime green was often a popular color choice for kitchens. Here, you can see that it is obviously making a comeback. In this vintage throwback, we love the use of lime green in the lower cabinets against the white hanging cabinets above. With a compact design, the look is finished well with natural accent pieces that include foliage and vegetables.
With a wide array of colors enhanced by both natural and hanging lights, this kitchen promotes positive energy. With a mix of dark stained cabinets and beautiful stone countertops, the kitchen is enhanced with white walls accented by red. The lighting fixtures bring in a beautiful yellow and red that mirrors the color of the accented walls as well as the yellow undertones of the countertops.
A purple color palette is often seen in the bedrooms of young girls and teenagers. However, this kitchen brings lavender to life with elegant accents from floor to ceiling. With a mix of purple and white cabinetry, the stark white walls and lavender ceiling are a beautiful combination paired with the striped curtains and white fixtures. We love the artisan backsplash that truly creates a focal point for this charming space.
Here, we see another purple kitchen with an entirely different feel and design. With a retro style, the purple cabinets and white countertops create a crisp look especially with the use of the white and steel barstools against a subtly patterned floor. For added color, the use of light blue tiles for the backsplash creates a whimsical effect that is paired nicely with stainless appliances and white walls.
A dark red can often be tricky to pull off in any room but we love the modern and sleek look in this kitchen! The clean lines of the cabinetry work well with this L-shaped kitchen with a square and rectangular patterned design that is mirrored in the square floor tiles. The stainless steel appliances and the modern stove vent hood add to the overall design.
Neon green is usually reserved for Oregon’s football uniforms as many have seen during games. However, there’s something special here with the use of lime green in this kitchen that makes this room come to life.

With a white table, floors and curtains, this bold room is crisp and edgy. t.
