Before and After, how to add color to a room. See these room makeovers!

Color is a great way to update your home! Especially on porches, sun rooms, and through kitchen accessories.

  • Color can be done on a budget. Consider painting your walls, reupholstering cushions, or updating art & accessories.
  • Color can be changed to reflect the season! Think throw pillows or accessories!
  • Color can cheer up your home! You don’t have to limit yourself to neutrals like taupe,  especially when things can be changed for little expense. People often comment that they crave the addition of color in their home, to avoid a drab environment.
  • Color can help make your home “flow” from room to room. In the adjacent kitchen we added accessories which repeat the color in the sunroom, (see bottom photo).

It’s important that rooms “flow”, the accessories we put in the kitchen helped us
repeat the colors from the adjacent rooms. 

If your sunroom has a tongue and groove ceiling make sure you text the stain colors on the actual wood. Often sunrooms end up with a tongue and groove ceiling that is too orange. This photo shows a nice brown tone, or you can whitewash it with a strong gray green white wash (to tone down the orange in the wood).

Colorful fabrics will make a cheerful statement that sets the mood for a sunporch. See below.
