Fresh Design Ideas: A Blue and White Kitchen

Colorful kitchens are becoming more and more common with homeowners looking to redesign their space; and from red-lacquered cabinetry, to enameled appliances in easter-egg shades, the options for infusing color into the kitchen are endless. However, if you're on the fence about adding a non-neutral hue to the heart of your home, there is a happy medium that is both bright and timeless: A classic shade of blue. Here, six blue and beautiful kitchens that might just convince you to ditch the neutral scheme.

1. Limiting  color to the lower bank of cabinets while keeping the rest of the room white is a subtle way to add rich blue to the kitchen.
