Some style trends become so ubiquitous, it's hard to remember a time when things were different. What came before Scandinavian-chic? What shape did our console tables take before the resurgence of mid-century modern design? And please, someone tell me — was there ever a time when kitchens weren't stark white from top to bottom?

Now, I love a nice bright kitchen as much as the next gal, but the all-white trend has gotten a little boring. There is a way to keep your room feeling clean and bright without having to erase literally all the color! Far too often, people disregard the kitchen when bringing personal touches to their home. Adding some color is the easiest way to make sure it actually reflects your style and isn't just an anonymous utility room where you go to chop onions.

Get inspired by these colorful kitchen designs. Whether you take it slow by painting just your lower cabinets or go all-out and create a rainbow with your backsplash, island and floor, adding a pop of color to your kitchen is always a good idea.
