// By

While a white kitchen is always elegant and timeless sometimes you just want to add a bit of fun and excitement to your domestic zones. Here, 14 kitchens show you how a burst of colour on a wall, tap or tile can add loads of personality to any kitchen area.

1/ 14 // Timber and iron is a classic look that’s been made new again with the addition of these industrial lights and white subway tiles.

2/14 // Industrial black shelving and timber benchtops give this home a lovely modern and slightly more masculine edge.

3/14 // Cabinetry painted all one bright colour is a guaranteed way to add interest and excitement to a domestic area. Paired with sleek black windows and chairs and timber floors and table, the home is prevented from becoming dated too quickly. The advantage of keeping the foundation classic is that when you change your mind about the colour, it can easily be painted over.

4/ 14 // Blue grey cupboards, black steel-framed windows, and patterned tile floors give this kitchen endless personality.

5/14 // Dark-stained timber with modern, handle-less cabinetry is juxtaposed beautifully against the art-deco ceiling of this Copenhagen apartment.

6/14 // We see so much white marble these days, not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s refreshing to see this black marble island bench. Paired with a copper range hood and black tap hardware this kitchen is anything if not unique.

7/ 14 // Have you ever seen such brilliant cabinetry?

8/14 // This truly unique kitchen might have a white base but take note of the clever combining of colours such as an olive green cabinet, sky blue ceiling and a red leather stool. Gold and copper accents tie the look together.

9/14 // Marc Newson uses a local timber in his Greek Island holiday home for a relaxed holiday look.

10/ 14 // Another white-based room looks bright and modern with the inclusion of bright green cabinetry and copper taps and accessories.

11/14 // Speckled grey cabinets, walls and ceilings are perfectly paired with matte black taps and fittings.

11/ 14 // The only thing more brilliant than copper kitchen cabinets is combining them with a patina-style green patterned wall.

12/14 // Sardinian olive green walls and timber combine for a homely family-style kitchen.

14/ 14 // There’s nothing shy about this gelato coloured kitchen and dining area. The pendant lamp is the perfect pop of gold.
