Black Shines with Gold

Bold black makes a stunning statement on the cabinets, island, and range hood. Gold details such as the pendants, hood trim and stools make this kitchen look anything but basic, bringing a bit of warmth and glam.

A Shot of Cobalt

In this elegant, neutral kitchen, cobalt blue appliances really pop, adding a jolt of unexpected color that really stands out against the white cabinetry.

Gorgeous in Graphite

We love how the tile placement here brings layered texture and interest to this gray-on-gray scene. Stainless steel appliances beautifully complement the tile and style of the kitchen.

Accents in Copper

In this neutral, open kitchen, the copper details make the design really shine. Check out the pendant lighting, pot faucet, and other metallic touches in this welcoming space seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.

Fabulous Green Flooring

A lightly distressed, painted floor really becomes a focal point with its green-and-wood diamond pattern. It's a bold statement that works well in a country-style kitchen with neutral cabinetry.

A Blue Note

This inviting kitchen offers substantial, user-friendly storage in a beautiful setting. Shades of blue on the cabinets and island create a cool, inviting kitchen that will appeal to family and guests alike.

A Hint of Mint

The use of a soft wash of mint green on the cabinets is a fresh choice for this welcoming kitchen. The barely-there hue becomes a new neutral in this space, alongside a white island, marble backsplash, and a natural-wood lighting encasement.

Grape Expectations

With an oversized island with waterfall quartz countertop and sleek white cabinetry, this kitchen gets a kick with an unexpected hue. Purple lines the walls and tops off the chic, modern seating options.

Hot in Hunter Green

At once classic and unique, hunter green cabinetry lends a rich, elegant touch to this warm and inviting kitchen, beautifully balancing the sleek oven and range hood.

Unexpected in Orange

The orange Bertazzoni range is the undisputed focal point of this kitchen, beautifully complemented by the warmth of the walnut end grain island countertop and honed marble countertops. Leather-topped orange stools bring everything together flawlessly.

Crisp in White & Navy

Clean and classic in navy blue and white, this elegant kitchen is the heart of the home. White stools pull up to a navy island and cushy blue chairs are welcoming in the dining area.

Keep It Red Hot

Don't let a small kitchen stop you from injecting it with lively color. This small galley kitchen gets a modern industrial feel from stainless steel appliances, a blackened steel bar counter and sleek, fire-engine red cabinets.

Standout in Sage

Sage green shaker style cabinets provide soft color without distracting from other elements of the kitchen. A simple rustic wood table serves as a kitchen island, while a whitewashed vaulted wood ceiling makes the space feel airy and bright.

The Sunny Side

A bold yellow stove is the perfect shock of accent color balanced against blue-gray cabinets in this kitchen.

A Touch of Gray

This kitchen is refreshed with bright white walls and soft gray cabinets for a quiet elegance that is both calming and inviting.

Black + White

A modern black and white kitchen with a brown wooden hutch is shown, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper. This classic color scheme is sure to impress and be a timeless color combo.

Emerald Green + Gold

This contemporary kitchen features sleek emerald green cabinets paired with gold accents, like the cone shaped pendant lights, which creates a standout space.

A Pop of Pink

A pink Southwestern-style rug goes well with the floor's geometric pattern in this clean, crisp kitchen. Upper cabinets get a splash of the happy color, too, thanks to pink painted interiors.

Robin's Egg Beauty

Keeping things neutral with the upper cabinets, countertops and backsplash allows the breathtaking blue lower cabinets to really shine. By choosing one item to be the colorful standout, the kitchen gets a pop of pretty color without feeling overwhelming.
