My house, from the front door, is a straight line. Except for the kitchen - need to turn right to enter the kitchen. The sofa for the living room is white, the dining set is round dark oak, and the storage for the kitchen is also white. I'm looking into different tips to make the place more colorful. [url=]This link[/url] says the countertop can bring more color into the kitchen. Our backsplash is mint green ceramic tile. What else can we add?

theme walls in a few or each room a different color can add some variety..the colors is up to your preferences of course but for resale down the road you want to keep things matched to the rest of decor and not outrageous like bright pink or sunset orange lol! but its your home so do what you want!

Hello Edmund!

I am no designer but I can tell you that the interior designers that I work with tend to use fixtures to help with themes. By this I mean electrical fixtures in this scenario. Your light fixtures can add some real pop to your finished space.

Another idea are feature walls at fireplaces or TV walls to add some diversity in both colour and texture (wood walls, stone walls, tiles walls)

Finally I am going to say artwork!

Your walls can be bland and uniform for re sale but you can change the feel of a room through area rugs, wall art (paintings, photos) and general nick knacks like vases, statues and so on.

I hope I understood your question properly and I hope this helps you out!
