Start with the accessories

If you're still saving up for a full-blown kitchen renovation, you can change the look of your space with a couple of budget-friendly ideas. Gather old mason jars and paint each with cool hues. Use your finished projects as containers for ingredients or even as a utensil holder.

You can also purchase kitchen utensils and other equipment in different colors. Many stores carry a bunch of colorful options but you can start by visiting Daiso Japan.

Choose colorful furnishings

Aside from investing in accessories, you can also bring in colorful towels, oven mitts, pot holders, and even an area rug. Make sure that the pieces you choose work well with the overall look of the space and that the colors and prints don't clash.
