Colorful Cook Spaces America loves a white kitchen. We get it. White’s clean, simple, orderly—and, even devotees have to agree, a bit of a no-brainer. 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 a dozen duos to get you going.
