Make Overlooked Spaces Come to Life Through Color


If you've ever walked into someone's powder room, closet, or even their utility room and you were wowed by its overall effect, it was probably due to their strategic use of color in the room! Paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to add an incredible amount of style and interest to even the blandest area. Read on to discover ways you can add your own "wow" to formerly overlooked areas in your home.

Laundry Room

If you are one of those people who spends more time in your laundry or utility room than in your living room, why not at least make it a room you enjoy being in? Whether you decide to go with positive, upbeat colors like a cheery yellow or a beautiful sky blue, or if you prefer to go with a more neutral palette that provides the serenity you crave throughout your day, you can make your laundry area a room you truly love. By spending a small amount of time and money upfront to make your laundry room a haven rather than a room to avoid, you can help make laundry chores a joy or at least a little more fun.

Powder Room

Yes, powder rooms typically are small spaces with minimal function, but they can really add a pop of style and color to a home. It takes almost no time or money to transform this small space into an inviting room. When deciding upon color, it helps to select an accent color from the adjacent room or hallway in order to provide continuity throughout the home.


Hallways are used to get from one room to another, but there are practical reasons why it might be wise to give them their own appeal. Hallways often do not receive the same amount of lighting as other rooms and their darkness can be somewhat of a traffic hazard. Consider painting some of your hallways a shade or two lighter than adjacent rooms to brighten up the area while giving them their own style.
