Add Color to Your Kitchen and Bath

April 8, 2011 by Kenmore

There’s nothing like waking up to a bright shot of color. It’s your biggest ally when it comes to refreshing a room.

Color in the kitchen

  • Add a backsplash of colored tile to instantly change the look of your kitchen.
  • Recover your kitchen chairs or stools in a deep color or new pattern.
  • Painted floors are beautiful against white cabinets.
  • Place a colorful rug under your breakfast table.
  • Put bowls of lemons and limes on counters and table.
  • Replace a window with stained glass, or suspend a stained-glass panel in front of it.
  • Bright knobs and pulls add a pop of color to maple cabinets.
  • Display colorful pottery and dishes on open shelves.
  • Frame images of colorful fruits and vegetables to brighten a wall.
  • Start a windowsill garden; you’ll gain both color and fresh herbs.

Brighten a bath

  • Go bold in a guest bath – try a deep wall color or patterned wallpaper.
  • Add colored monograms to classic white towels.
  • Fill clear jars with colored soaps or beach glass.
  • A simple change of towels can have a big effect. Bold stripes, for instance, say “summer.”
  • Hang a glass vase on the wall to hold fresh or faux flowers.
