The colors you choose when designing your home will ultimately impact how you feel inside your home every day. For a home that feels like a relaxing escape, follow these simple tips and tricks from us at Parker Built Homes when choosing kitchen and bathroom colors.
Let Your Feelings Lead
Choose colors that make you feel good. Perhaps you have a close friend with a color in their home that either relaxed you or made you feel anxious; let these emotions lead when making decision about color. Sample by painting a half a wall (no edges) and letting it sit for a day or two before making a definitive decision.
Embrace Bold Color Palettes
Kitchens and bathrooms lend well to bold and bright color palettes. Because cabinetry takes up much of the wall, bright colors are often better suited to the kitchen and bathroom than other areas of the house.
Find Inspiration Early
By starting your design project with an item or material that inspires you, you can begin to build your kitchen and bathroom around that item to ensure continuity throughout. For some, the item of inspiration may be a curtain panel or piece of tile flooring.
Aim for Neutral on High-End Finishes
If you choose to go with high-end flooring and countertops, aim for neutral colors that can be flexible in the space so you have the potential to change the paint and decor color without having to change the high-end finishes every time.
Utilize Your Builder’s Expertise
Ask the builder for recommendations and suggestions when it comes to pairing flooring, counter tops, and paint colors. Utilize their expertise in selecting colors and have the walls painted before you even move in. At Parker Built, they have so many years of expertise in the industry that they can share with you the experiences of other clients to help you avoid a regrettable decision.
