There’s nothing like a burst of color to change your kitchen design or transform your house. Even if you’re one of those “plain vanilla” people who is afraid of color, consider how a few colorful home improvement touches can boost your home’s appeal and value.

Many people are afraid of any remodeling changes that involve color because they think it somehow creates a negative aura. The opposite is often true when it comes to home improvement, however. When done well, a dose of color can turn an ordinary home into something out of a fine architectural magazine.

Kitchen Design With Color

The kitchen is a perfect place to start, as it’s the most heavily used spot in the home. While you may not want your granite countertops in orange (do they even make orange…doubt it?)…why not add bold cranberry paint on the wall or try a red dishwasher? For long term use or resale purposes, color can boost your investment returns.

Remodeling With Paint

Paint is a popular home improvement upgrade because it adds depth and texture almost instantly. Among the popular colors are sage, cream and pumpkin earth tones, as well as bold blue, yellow, and red tones. Read Kathy’s remodeling blog for interesting ways to use color. When selecting remodeling colors, remember to blend the tones throughout the house.

Kitchen Cabinet Colors

Your kitchen cabinets also present an opportunity for color. Try a warm chocolate glaze or a soft yellow stain to boost your kitchen design and house value. If you’re looking for some unique kitchen cabinet colors, Better Homes and Gardens provides some insight.

Here are some other home improvement fixes where color can make a visual statement:

  • A kitchen faucet–stark white or oil rubbed bronze
  • The kitchen countertop–ocean blue or forest green
  • Pillows and accessories–in a family room, den, bedroom

See how easy it is to color your remodeling world? You can even find color choices for your attic or basement remodel.
