When it came time to transition my kids from a nursery to their big kid bedrooms, I let them choose certain decor details like the color of their walls. My oldest chose a bright teal with a beachy Key West vibe. My youngest landed on a lilac purple, though she’d now call “rainbow” her favorite color. But step outside each of their rooms, and you’d find a decidedly neutral palette of mostly whites, grays, and—when I’m feeling really adventurous—sage green through the rest of my home.
It’s not that I don’t like color. I do. And I’ve been tiptoeing into bolder choices. But my own kitchen is paper white. It’s probably a solid choice for resale and longevity, yet sometimes I wish I wasn’t so safe in my style. This is why I loved sourcing this roundup of kitchens that aren’t afraid of a little color; blues, greens, blacks, and even a coral pink fridge round out this list of gorgeous kitchens with barely a white cabinet in sight.
Check out 12 of our favorite non-white kitchens below!
Neutral, But Make It Colorful
Blues, grays, greens, and wood tones still feel light and neutral without the white cabinetry. Additional details like wallpapered walls, colorful rugs, textured backsplashes, and even statement appliances add interest to these gorgeous kitchens.
Black and Bold
There’s something so chic and modern about a black kitchen. Contrasting wood tones, white tile, and complimentary black lighting fixtures make these spaces super swoon-worthy.
Bright and Cheery
Sometimes you just have to go all-in on color. Who wouldn’t want to spend some time in these cheerful, bright, and beautiful kitchens?
