Liven Up Your Home with Color

Get started on your adventure with color



The summer months are all about color. From flowers in bloom to vibrant beach towels and colorful dresses, summer brings with it a multitude of hues.

If you feel that your home is in need of an update, adding a little pop of color can help. Start by thinking about the colors you want to add, where color can make the most impact and just how much you need to give your home a fresh look.

Here are a few tips to get you started on your adventure in color:

Explore Color

Begin by visiting your favorite clothing boutique, stopping into a paint store or flipping through home design magazines for inspiration. Choose the looks you are most drawn to or the colors that evoke a feeling of happiness or calmness. These colors reflect your personal style and will make you feel most comfortable in your home.

Start Small

After picking a color palette, don’t go out and paint your whole house with it, start small. Just changing your accent pillows, throws, lampshades or accessories can make a big impact when you are introducing a new color. Remember to make sure the color flows well throughout the entire space, especially if your home has an open floor plan with rooms easily visible from one to another.

Accent with Artwork

Another easy way to bring color to your home is by updating artwork and wall decor. Simply moving artwork from one room to another can give your home a refreshed look. Adding some newly purchased pieces can also breathe new life into your home!

Be Brave

If you’re ready to go all out with color, it’s fine to make a dramatic change. The kitchen is a great place to go big with color and it’s usually the gathering place in the home. To bring bold color in the kitchen, and to set the tone for your entire home, update your cabinetry.

“Colorful cabinetry can be a big commitment, but it also can set your kitchen apart in a sea of design sameness,” said Sarah Reep, director of designer relations and education at KraftMaid Cabinetry.

In addition to traditional wood-toned cabinetry styles, there is also a growing selection of on-trend paint and stain colors. Take it a step further by choosing glass doors and using a contrasting color on the inside like a sunny, warm yellow or bold teal green for the interior back panel. Cabinetry colors can add whimsy and personality to any kitchen.

It can feel as though your home has been completely made over by adding just a few thoughtful touches with a few hints of color.
