Center Of Attention3 of 17
An industrial kitchen gets a stylish update with this eye-catching island in a project by Burr & McCallum Architects. Made of a custom steel frame, the island holds six store-bought red mechanics toolboxes. Aside from adding a wonderful burst of color, it's a renovation-free way to get lots of drawer space for a little bit of money.
ON REMODELISTA: Red Dining Chairs
Apples & Oranges4 of 17
Create in instant (and less expensive) transformation with a bright piece of furniture in your kitchen. The orange tables in this space by Los Angeles architect Bruce Bolander bring the all-gray kitchen to life.
Hold The Butter5 of 17
Don't forget the benefits of a simple can of paint. The yellow wall in a kitchen by architect Anki Gneib adds an instant dose of sunshine.
Sweeten The Pot6 of 17
Well-placed color pops in Tess Carter's kitchen with its bright yellow clock frame and matching enamel. Whether with a teapot or a dish, consider accessorizing your stovetop with playful cookware for an easy update.

Got The Blues12 of 17
Consider upholstery as a way to enhance an otherwise hard surface space. Architect Deborah Berke used bright sea cloth on this breakfast nook settee in a West Chelsea kitchen.
Subtle Spice13 of 17
A pair of colorful open shelves adds a surprise to this otherwise crisp white kitchen by architect Robert Kahn. For a DIY solution, paint the insides of cabinets and open shelving in your space.
In Living Color14 of 17
This kitchen takes on a whole new look with a jewel-toned island and one floral-papered wall. Get the look by bringing traditional living room and bedroom accents like wallpaper into the kitchen.
Red Light, Green Light15 of 17
Intermittent bursts of color pop on wood cabinetry. In these kitchen cabinets by Kerf Designs, colored plastic laminate lines various places of the plywood.
Mellow Yellow16 of 17
Artsy vignettes are another affordable and creative way to add personality to your kitchen. Los Angeles-based designer Jamie Bush combines colorful ceramics, plants and drawings to enliven a kitchen space.
Go Green17 of 17
Colored cabinets are an obvious choice for creating a vivacious kitchen. Unfortunately, it's a change that can require an extensive remodel. Ikea to the rescue! Consider adding colored cabinet doors to just one row of cupboards.
