9 Ways to Add Color to a Kitchen

Homeowners tend to shy away from multicolored colors when renovating or designing flats, because it is ideal to have a classic design and not intimidate prospective buyers when selling. The results are kitchens which have neutral colors and materials which are quite forgettable.

Do not be afraid to add color to a kitchen. Look at different areas of your home for inspiration. Perhaps there are colors in your favourite painting or cloth that inspire you. Following are a few examples of eye catching kitchens.
