We've said it before and we'll say it again—a simple wall color upgrade can update your space in major ways. This design philosophy never fails even when it comes to the kitchen. If you're tired of the usual neutrals, here are a few new ideas you can try: 

A muted olive green makes the perfect pair for a neutral and wood-heavy kitchen. It accentuates the natural beauty of the grain without stealing the spotlight from the other elements in the room. 

If you want something cool-toned, a rich cobalt blue is a welcome jolt of color in a gray kitchen. It's a great statement hue, too—there's no need to do much else decor-wise. 

A pop of bright yellow is a great way to add life to an otherwise minimal room. You can also add color through furniture by opting for painted bar stools to complete your breakfast nook.

For those who are feeling a little adventurous, you can go for rainbow-inspired color blocking underneath your counter. Keep each door within the same scheme to avoid overdecorating the space. 

You know what the say, a little neon goes a long way. Create a watercolor effect using highlighter-inspired hues on your kitchen cabinets for a quirky look that isn't over the top.
