Would you consider making a bold statement with color in your kitchen? Just how far would you go? Few might be brave enough, or confident enough in their decision, to commit to a color-drenched kitchen such as this kelly green lacquered beauty by Miles Redd. Some people are naturally adventurous with colors, while others are perfectly happy staying with a quieter, more neutral palette. Do you fall into one of these two categories, or somewhere in-between?
Let’s face it: it’s a lot easier (and certainly more cost-effective) to change an entire room by adding color to your décor with a can of paint, or a fresh batch of fabulous pillows. Worst-case scenario: if it doesn’t work, you can re-paint or re-cover, but it won’t break the bank. Taking a decorating risk in the kitchen, however, can be a bigger commitment and one that isn’t as easy (or inexpensive) to change. So, how do you add color to your kitchen in a way that challenges your comfort zone a bit without sending you into a panic?

In a twist to adding a splash of color with a can of paint, House Beautiful featured a white glass-front kitchen cabinet with the interior painted in Benjamin Moore’s South Beach. What a great way to add color while showcasing your dishes!
And if you’re not quite sure that you want to commit to something bold, how about adding some color in the form of a fun light fixture? The custom-painted antique red lantern in this kitchen designed by Canadian Tommy Smythe is the perfect accent in this Victorian home.
Whether you just dip your toe in, or jump in feet first, why not add a splash of color to your kitchen design? Chances are your colorful design element will make a statement and at the same time appear a little bit unexpected.
