America loves a white kitchen. We get it. White's clean, simple and orderly. But we're here to tell you that color can be a kitchen's best friend, cleverly highlighting architectural details or transforming dated cabinetry. It can change the whole feeling of the room. Even brightening up just one area—an island, say—with a refreshing hue can be a real mood-booster. Combine two colors on your cabinets, and you're on your way to a truly personal look. So break out of the white-and-wood zone and let color work the room.

We've pulled together some of our favorite duos to get you going.

ColorfulKitchensSea & Sky

One no-fail approach: using two shades of the
same color. In this large open kitchen, the deep-
blue island takes center stage, while sky-hued
cabinets define the perimeter. Windows brighten
the high-ceilinged space and harmonize with the
stainless-steel appliances and the island's bands
of dark wood.

A changeable color—is it blue? is it gray?—this
neutral has enough interest to stand on its own.
But it really comes alive paired with the fiery orange
that was added on this island. Painting the backs of
the open shelves a lighter tint of the same gray
adds depth and showcases the bright accessories.

Leaf Green & White

The vibrant island holds court in this crisp white
kitchen, but it isn’t a solo act. The high angled ceiling
with sky lights and large window with matching green-
and-white add to this tranquil color scheme. Along with
the mix of metals and materials, it invites the eye to
travel around the room.

Bright Red & Midnight Black

This dramatic kitchen feels balanced thanks to a
pairing of equal-intensity colors. The black tile backsplash,
vent hood and island cabinets effectively provide contrast
to show off the red island countertop at center, while bright
white walls and windows keep the painted pieces from
feeling heavy.
