Who says a kitchen has to look a certain way?  Break free from any preconceived notions about kitchen design and decoration and embrace the unique.  Paint the walls a bright color and the cabinets a contrasting color to the walls.  Blend open shelving with cabinets, choose a bright countertop as an accent and install unique backsplash tiles.

For a sophisticated kitchen, use colorful appliances, accents and artwork to add small bursts of color.  Anchor the kitchen island with bright stools.  To achieve a balanced and sophisticated vibrant kitchen, limit your colors to two and use them in impactful ways, such as on the kitchen island and the walls.

For the traditionalist, mixing in a kitchen island of a different color than the cabinetry adds just the perfect note of color.  Accent this with a contrasting color of pendant lights over the island and pick up the color with art and accessories.

Using a wallpaper you may have reserved for another room of the home is an unexpected feature in the kitchen.  Install small chandeliers over the kitchen island for a bit of luxury and traditional styling.  A mix of rustic and glamour is always a winning combination.
