Thinking about updating your kitchen decor sometime soon? Not sure how to make it look more vibrant and lively? Well, you’re in the right place. Let me introduce you to colorful kitchen decor.
It’s time to step away from the neutrals, whites, and grays and add a touch of color to your kitchen… and your life. Bring out all the colors of the rainbow with these charming, useful, and carefully picked kitchen essentials and make it a joyful place for family gatherings.
10 Much-Needed Kitchen Essentials
When it comes to decorating, many people stick with color recommendations by the experts. I used to do that as well, used to spend hours googling color suggestions and trends for the year. But then I realized I like my interior a bit differently. So, I wondered—what about us who love vivid colors and vibrant, colorful interiors?
I say we should not limit our interior design palette!
Thus, I prepared this list of 10 extremely cute and colorful pieces for your kitchen, that are budget-friendly and that will make your kitchen a brighter and more fun place.
1. 180 Degrees Hand Painted Floral Colander
This lovely, hand-painted colander is a perfect addition to your soon-to-be very colorful kitchen. With these lively colors and wonderful floral design, there’s absolutely no need to hide it somewhere in the back of a kitchen cabinet. In fact, you can (and should) hang it on the kitchen wall as an art piece.
Simply pick your fav color (or two… maybe even three, because – why not) and place it in a visible spot for a surprise pop of color.
2. MDZF Sweet Home Porcelain Plates Set
These charming, colorful dinner plates are a perfect addition to a joyful, bright kitchen. You can easily combine them with other colors and set the most fun table for a nice gathering.
As I like to say—the more color, the merrier the vibe! Combine these cute plates with colored glasses or bold color underplates.
3. Cravings by Chrissy Teigen Be Flexible Silicone Tools Set
I simply love colorful kitchen utensils made from silicone. They are super easy to clean, they look neat, and they are durable.
And the queen itself, the adorable Chrissy Teigen is the one to thank for this cute little set of four silicone kitchen tools. Not only these are a kitchen necessity, but they also won’t damage your pots or pans as they are made of food-grade silicone.
Four bright hues in which this set comes also make it ideal for kids, to encourage them to help out and make cooking a family bonding activity.
I mean, who can resist pink colored spatulas? Definitely not me.
4. CHOCKee mini tapas dish
This beautiful handmade porcelain tapas dish set is perfect for dinners inspired by Spanish cuisine. You can stack them on top of each other and leave them out on an open shelf as a carefully chosen decorative item for your color-infused kitchen.
5. Creative Co-Op Stoneware Spoon Set
These lovely, happily designed stoneware spoons definitely deserve to be shown, and by that, I mean to hang on a visible spot in the kitchen. Or, of course, above a mantel if you have a fireplace in your home.
6. Kapka Mind-Pop Small Enamel Canister
Kapka’s unique handmade kitchenware looks just like a piece of art. These wow-worthy enamel canisters come in four vivid colors, and if you ask me—I’d choose all of them.
Not only do they look stunning, but they are also super useful for storing spices, cookies, tea, salt, sugar, whatever comes to your mind. They are built to stand the test of time, and I love, love, love durable, stylish, (and obviously) colorful kitchen utensils, so no wonder these are on my list.
Kapka’s enamel canisters can also be used outdoors, which is awesome if you have a BBQ area or an outdoor kitchen/kitchenette.
7. Turgla Home Rainbow Ramekins Set
The hand-painted rainbow ramekins set of eight brings a fun note to the table. These small glass ramekins are the perfect size for many uses, and can even be used in the oven for, let’s say, pot pies or soufflés. If you consider yourself a creative cook, then this gorgeously colorful set is just the thing you need to add a touch of color to your kitchen.
8. Studio Arhoj Dip Dish
This beautiful dip dish is part of the Tokyo tableware series by Studio Arhoj. It looks classy, stylish, and you can basically use it for anything. Even as colorful cereal bowls for breakfast with the family, for a good and cheerful start of the day. And once you decide to replace it, you can repurpose it as a jewelry dish or collect coins in it.
9. Sage and Sill Strawberry Drying Stand
What can I say except—cuteness overload! I mean just look at these cute little strawberry drying racks. Now that is a detail one must have in their home. Choose one of five available colors to add a perfect touch of fun and color to your kitchen.
P.S. You can also use it in the bathroom as a toothbrush holder!
Should I even say anything about this gorgeous kitchen scrubby? I don’t know about you, but I’m adding to the cart now!
These handmade sponges are perfectly colorful (OMG, just look at the glittery ones), plus they require less sope use, and they last longer—what a deal! Replace boring sponges with these cheerful little scrubbies, ideal to brighten your cooking space.
I hope my choice of 10 pretty cute kitchen essentials helps inspire you and gives you some ideas about how to create your own rainbow kitchen. Basically, you can use anything from colorful ceramic plates to cups, tools, even appliances—and honestly, the most important thing is that you feel good and positive about it, not really if it’s according to interior design style rules.
So, let your imagination run wild, girl, get a hold of some colorful pieces, and upgrade your kitchen decor the way you want to and the way it makes you happy!
