Kitchen With Red Accent Color

Adding Pops of Color to Your Kitchen

In many homes, the kitchen is designed to be a neutral space without a lot of bright color. While this concept makes for a great base canvas, adding pops of color to your kitchen can really add visual appeal, as well as fun, to the space. Here are some ideas on how to add color to nearly any kitchen!

Accent Wall Color

Creating a focal point, as well as a pop of color, can be as simple as painting one accent wall a bright, yet coordinating color. Select a wall that is visible to those entering the kitchen, and that makes sense as a focal point. When selecting your color, consider the way the light will reflect and also the way the color will look with cabinetry, countertops, and flooring.


While the kitchen usually will not have a large amount of furnishings, those that may be present can really stand out when they are brightly colored. Some of the most popular ideas include bar stools, a table with chairs, china cabinets or hutches, and center island cabinetry.

Accent Pieces

Accent pieces, such as fruit bowls, vases, and other colorful décor items are one of the easiest ways to add a pop of color to your kitchen. Select pieces that are the right size for the space where they will be displayed and that coordinate well with the kitchen’s style.


If you are looking for function, as well as color, consider purchasing kitchen linens that are bright and fun. From pot holders and oven mitts to dish towels and placemats, linens are necessary components in most kitchens.

Appliances & Utensils

For many years, appliances and other kitchen gadgets were quite bland and only available in a few neutral colors, like black and white. Over the last few years, however, there has been a growing trend of making these kitchen necessities bright and multicolored. If you have a brightly hued stand mixer or coffee pot, or even pots and pans that are fun shades, proudly display these in your kitchen to give added pops of color!


If you are looking for a way to add color that is a little more permanent, then adding or replacing a backsplash in your kitchen might be the perfect solution. From shiny and beautiful glass, granite, and marble tile choices to more muted tones found in slate and quartz, there are so many options for making your kitchen’s backsplash colorful and interesting!
