Embracing Spring by adding some fresh fun colors into your everyday routine doesn't only apply to your workout wear, you can also extend it to your kitchen accessories! I just upgraded my standard white water filter to a bright royal blue pitcher, and I love the change — a little color goes a long way! Here are some stylish, high-rated water filters worth paying attention to.
- Culligan Level 3 Faucet Filter ($18): Want to keep your water free from lead and chlorine, but find water filter pitchers a nuisance? This sleek, white tap filter from Culligan has a filter life of 200 gallons; improves odor and taste; and reduces lead, chlorine taste and odor, cryptosporidium, and giardia cysts.

- Mavea Elemaris XL Water Filtration Pitcher ($35): For a modern look, this European-style, nine-glass water capacity water filter pitcher from Mavea is made from BPA-free plastic and includes a silver-treated filter to prevent bacteria growth. I also love the fact that Maeva's used filters can be recycled, and it includes a smart meter that measures water hardness.
- PUR Stage Oval Water Pitcher ($35): PUR water filters have been around just as long as Brita filters. They hold about seven glasses of water, and one filter can be used for 40 gallons of water. This pitcher also features a two-stage filtration process that removes 99 percent of contaminants from the water, including lead, mercury, and chlorine.
- The Water Geeks Laboratory Bottle and Filter ($24): How adorable are these bottles from Neiman Marcus? Just fill up this stainless steel bottle with tap water and it will filter out heavy metals, chlorine, and bad odors. One filter can be used up to 400 times. Here are a couple other cute, inexpensive filtered water bottles.
- Brita Pitcher ($31): Brita is still rocking the water filter pitchers, and this time the brand's really gone all out for Spring with its large capacity pitcher that comes splashed in tangerine. This pitcher can hold up to 10 glasses of water and will strip chlorine, mercury, and copper from your tap water. The electronic filter change indicator will tell you when you should replace the filter (about every two months).
