If investing in a full set of bright cabinets is scary, dip your toes in the water by painting just a few of your existing wood cabinets. Accent paint colors for the kitchen work well on a small stretch of upper cabinets on their own wall, on an island or on a nonpermanent piece such as a buffet. If you have glass-front cabinets, you can also introduce an even smaller pop of color by simply painting or wallpapering the insides.

For a low-effort, low-cost approach with big results, add color to just one accent wall using paint, wallpaper or removable decals.
