Even the right flowers can bring a splash of color to your kitchen.

Because the cabinets typically represent your greatest expense and need to stand the longest test of time, you may be more comfortable choosing a style in a more neutral finish. Same goes for the countertops and flooring. But let yourself have some fun slapping the brighter, trendier shades on your accessories, small appliances and decorative items, including:

  • Backsplashes 

  • Flooring insets and borders

  • Window treatments

  • Tablecloths

  • Placemats

  • Dish towels

  • Chair covers

  • Paint trim

  • Wallpaper

  • Artwork

  • Tiles

  • Sinks

  • Faucets

  • Coffeepots

  • Blenders

  • Toasters

  • Throw rugs

  • Plates and bowls

  • Pitchers
