Ever since we removed an old, aging kitchen cabinet from the wall a couple months ago, I’ve had kitchens on the brain. We’ve been in research mode when it comes to kitchen remodels — we met with kitchen design consultants from both Home Depot and IKEA — and of course I’ve been searching Pinterest for all the colorful kitchen ideas I can possibly find.

Colorful kitchen ideas: Bring on the blues
In case you haven’t seen my home, I kinda have a thing with blue. This is definitely one color that’ll make an appearance in v2 of our kitchen. Here are some blue kitchens I’ve discovered recently:
I love this shade of blue used on the lower cabinets — it’s called Pepper Tree from Devoe Paints.

You can’t go wrong with a classic navy and white combo.
Blues, grays, wood tones and fresh whites are ALWAYS pretty together. I love this floor tile!
This runner is a showstopper, especially combined with deep blue cabinetry and dark floors.

Love everything about this one, but check out the gold hardware and addition of open shelving — those are two pretty simple changes to make, even if you’re not tearing up floors or cabinets quite yet.

Avery of Holland Avenue Home painted her lower kitchen cabinets in Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg Blue. And how gorgeous are they?! Just goes to show that you don’t need to have a big budget to make big changes in your kitchen.

This moody green kitchen is waaaaay too cool. And check out that tile. Tile is a pretty easy upgrade in a kitchen. Don’t have existing tile and don’t feel like installing any? Grab a wall stencil and some paint for a budget-friendly “tile” install.

This pretty green kitchen’s got some Parisian flair.

Colorful kitchen ideas: A shot of sunshine
Wanna give your kitchen a big jolt of color? The right shade of yellow can bring a whole lot of happy to a kitchen. Sprinkle in yellow accessories or, if you’re feeling adventurous, go bold with yellow cabinets.
If colorful cabinets feel like too much of a commitment (I get it!), then adding colorful wallpaper is a great way to add a splash of color that’s not too permanent. This floral wallpaper is seriously my favorite thing ever. Favorite. Did I mention it’s my favorite?!

This designer painted the cabinets in her condo kitchen in a pretty shade of yellow, and added some happy wallpaper to boot. If all-yellow cabinets aren’t your thing, adding wallpaper inside your cabinets or on a wall of your kitchen can pack a punch.

I love this happy combo of yellow and blue. Pretty Moroccan tile is always a winner in my design book.

A piece of wallpaper was the inspiration for this whole-house design — resulting in bold colors being sprinkled everywhere. This yellow island is the perfect pop of happy.

This breakfast nook goes bold with some pretty yellow bench seating. And it’s awesome.
