Besides nurseries and retro bathrooms, pink isn't a color you find all that often in the home. It's often seen as too girly or too feminine, but that's totally wrong! Pink can be a chameleon. Pair baby pink with an inky blue to lighten the mood, or combine magenta with gold accents for a contemporary look. Pink is even great in the kitchen.

See how these 10 kitchens saw the potential in pink — maybe you'll find your own blush inspiration.

How adorable is this Smeg refrigerator? Perfect for a kitchen with size issues, it adds a totally unexpected pop of bubblegum pink to an otherwise sleek, modern kitchen space.

A rosey-pink wall is a lovely way to showcase an eclectic gallery wall — after all, you need something to look at while you're cooking, don't you? White and neutral cabinetry helps the wall stand out.

It can be difficult to bring style into a tight galley kitchen — here, a pink backsplash seems to elongate the narrow space. Oh, and it's really pretty, too.

Bam! Wallflowers need not apply here, where a bright fuchsia center island brings a shot of life to an industrially inspired kitchen space.

See how subtle pink can be? These cabinets have the slightest tinge of blush, which is a much prettier and more whimsical choice than beige or eggshell.

Mornings with coral-hued appliances are nearly better than a cup of coffee. How could this color not wake you up? It's also a wonderful backdrop to a variety of family photos.

Light pink is a great option in a space where white would be too harsh. Paired with a butcher-block countertop and black bottom cabinets, the light salmon hue of this open bistro shelving really warms up the room. Who needs white when you have this?

If you really want to go big with pink, do it like this bohemian-inspired kitchen — pink on the walls, the chairs, the appliances, and even the ceiling. This kitchen really makes a statement.

Modern-style kitchens can feel cold and stoic, but cabinetry in a Pepto pink brightens sleek lines right up, doesn't it?

Okay, so this statement pink wall is technically in the dining room, but it's close enough to cast some color into the sleek white kitchen.

What's your favorite way to bring pink into your kitchen?
