Transform Your Kitchen or Bath with Color

painted kitchen

If you’re considering an updated kitchen or bath for your home, but are working within a limited budget, consider how colors can transform your kitchen or bath without requiring any major renovations.

Bright, vivid walls of color can add impact, set a mood, create a focal point, enlarge a space, or make it feel more cozy. You can also use neutral or restrained colors to create a tranquil environment, or accentuate artwork and fixtures. Paints can also harmonize with your cabinetry (see blue kitchen image at right), or contrast against an architectural feature.
This month, GNH Lumber is highlighting Benjamin Moore Natura paints, a healthier interior paint with zero VOC, zero emissions, and zero harsh fumes, making it a safer paint for your family and the environment, all without compromise to performance or color selection.

If you’re thinking about applying a fresh coat of paint to your kitchen or bath, consider these color schemes:

Southern Charm:
