Are you drawn to the colorful interiors found in magazines but nervous to take that step in your own home? Well, for anyone who has taught you to follow a certain set of rules and guidelines for using color, disregard their instructions. Though a neutral color scheme might give you a sense of comfort and familiarity, if you love color, don’t be afraid to embrace it.

Neutrals: the safety blanket colors used in retail, rental, new construction, and most homes have become just how they’re described, neutral. Naturally, this color scheme is timeless, but maybe you’re ready for a new adventure? Something with a little more zest.

Let’s not forget, the advantages of adding color to your space are abundant too. Color has the power to add interest and visual depth to a room. It also can affect your mood by lifting your spirits or calming you down. Psychology even has a whole field dedicated to color! Experts are beginning to ask the question of how a lack of color can negatively affect one’s well-being.

None of this is to say that a neutral color palette should be banned from your home. If thoughtfully paired with sleek components, such as a marble countertop and gold accent features, a room can become elevated and polished.

While it’s easier to experiment with the “color of the season” in your wardrobe, dressing your home will undeniably require a longer commitment. This doesn’t have to be scary though! It is possible to tastefully add color to a space– without regret. Your Kitchen Designer is a trained expert in understanding how to elegantly make bold color decisions to add visual interest to a room.

Though sometimes thought to only belong on the walls, avoid limiting color its full freedom. In one of our designs at Karr Bick Kitchen + Bath, Missouri, our design team was challenged to incorporate the client’s love of the color blue. The end result made for a brave and blue kitchen.
