Bright Kitchens (Read: Neon) We Love

From just a splash of bright color to your entire cabinetry, neon shades can bring a unique vibrancy to one of the most lively rooms in your house. They can make rustic spaces feel eclectic, simple spaces feel modern and exciting, and tie together a room that’s a little lacking in personality.

 

Here are a few of our favorite looks to inspire you to boldly incorporate neons:

Orange and rust red drawers and shelves are this kitchen’s simple solution to exciting color. The random appearance of each pop of color lends an eccentricity and unpredictability to this otherwise straightforward space.

The lime green of the countertops and cabinetry in this dreamy kitchen offset the dark walls, making an otherwise glum space look sleek, bright and fun.

Simple, contemporary designs lend themselves well to bright colors, like this kitchen with its grid-like drawers and cabinetry. The bright blue adds an element of whimsy to this functional and no-nonsense room.

But contemporary style homes aren’t the only type that lend themselves to a controversial hot pink or stunning lime green. This fairly traditional kitchen is given an eclectic makeover with a palette of bright green punctuated with red.

Even the most rustic home can support the addition of a little crazy color if it’s done well. This designer veered away from the French country look that most people would expect to see in this space and did something entirely unique.

If you like bright color in small doses, a simple backsplash should be enough to brighten the room without overwhelming the eye.

Paint and modern furniture aren’t the only avenues to livening up a kitchen. Neon lighting can be just as effective.

This kitchen is a great example of committing fully to a color most people wouldn’t think to put in their kitchens–and pulling it off beautifully. If you’re a big fan of hot pink or bright purple, believe it or not, there are classy ways to bring that color into the communal spaces.
