Why keep the fruits and veggies in the fridge, when you can put them in a large bowl and place it on your kitchen table? This way, you keep a healthy snack nearby whenever you crave something good and you cheer up the room.

2. Place a rug on the floor

The kitchen is usually a moisture-prone environment, but it is an area of the house that deserves attention, just like the living-room. You can choose a rug based on its durability or the nice design it has, in order to spark some color into the kitchen. Patterns, flowers, dots and bullets, abstract colors, anything will look lovely on the kitchen floor - just dare to picture it in your mind!

3. Use wallpapers to decorate the kitchen's walls

If you don't want to paint the kitchen's walls, you can decorate them with wallpapers. If you only want a spark of color, you can choose just one kitchen wall for the dress-up game. Easy and cheap, right?

4. Create an open shelf with cookbooks

Who says books are only meant to stay in the library? If you love reading about food, keep all your materials in an open shelf placed on a kitchen wall. Books come in all sizes and colors, and will make a nice decor for the kitchen, too, trust us.

5. Paint the ceiling

If your kitchen only has one color, it's time to think of adding another one to the game. This time, think about painting the ceiling. A soft blue paint makes any small space seem larger. But you can also opt for light green, purple or pastel colors.

6. Choose colorful countertops

If you have a small kitchen island, choose countertops in bright colors - it will give your kitchen a fresh and modern look, and it will make it stand out from the rest of the house.

7. Add flowers and plants

By the window, on the kitchen table, in an open cabinet, anywhere you choose to place a colorful house plant, it will brighten up your space. Make sure to choose flowers or plants that thrive indoors. If you are a busy person and cannot properly take care of a living plant, you can always switch to fake flowers. The goal is to add color to your kitchen, not an extra responsibility on your every day life.

8. Colorful curtains

No matter the size of your kitchen windows, a pair of lovely, colorful curtains will enhance the look of the entire room. Opt for bright yellows or reds if the kitchen has neutral colors.

9. Choose a colorful sink

Colorful appliances are just another great way to add more color to your kitchen. Try and imagine your kitchen with a red sink in it, instead of a dull stainless steel or a plastic one. Same goes for the fridge.

10. Add colorful chandeliers or pendants
