Kitchen needs more color
April 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Kitchen is ok but wants a little more anthropologie flare. Where to start?

I don't know whether you are looking for large scale or small scale solutions, but let's start with small scale ones since your kitchen is white and neutral and you can do lots with it as is. So what about introducing a vibrant accent color in small areas? For example, bright red barstools with some bright red accents on the counters (bowl, cannisters, etc.) You can do a lot with small but vibrant accents. Possibly convert a couple of your upper cabinets to open shelving or glassed front doors with red (or turquoise or whatever bright color you like) bowls or cookware inside. I'd also remove the shaggy plants.

Depending on budget, I would recommend new countertops and backsplash.

If you want to keep your budget at a low cost myself I would paint cabinet in a light grey trim in white I think you have white tile backsplash and that would go with any color also I don't know where you live but we have reclaim tile surplus stores my daughter and I gave her kitchen a new look by using tile on her already existing counter 1/4 of the cost of ( granite or most anything else we looked at ) we did it in a mosaic type style we also decided to take the doors off of a couple of her cabinet to have a open look added her most colorful dishes and it turned out beautiful we added red and mustered yellow to the room I just had a few suggestions.

Those are all really great ideas. My husband and I would only be able to do small changes because we are renting , but I'm so much more inspired now! Thank you everyone! Glad I posted on here. First time user.
