How To Add Happy Color To Your Home This Spring

If your home could use a boost of happy color, spring is the perfect season to make a change. From carefree, colorful kitchen cabinet finishes to cheerful pops of your favorite pastels and bright hues, read on for ideas and inspiration.

Custom Color Cabinets 

White Shaker cabinets are a timeless choice, and dark kitchen cabinet finishes are a staple of contemporary spaces. But if you want to surround yourself in happy color, why not consider colorful custom cabinets? For example, this pastel pink kitchen recently featured in HGTV magazine has a clean and current look that is anything but bubblegum, while these bold kitchens appeal to modern sensibilities with a dose of energetic orange. Dark blue cabinets are also right on trend, or pick from over a thousand shades when you shop our pre-assembled custom cabinets that feature top-quality, custom color kitchen cabinet finishes. Simply choose your door style and favorite Sherwin-WIlliams color combinations, and see your creativity come to life with the help of our free online kitchen and room design

Spring Color Trends

Late last year, Better Homes & Gardens predicted the top shades for spring 2021 would include brilliant blues and greens (like Julia Child’s famous kitchen), warm and sunny yellow, orange and red hues, and vibrant shades of pink and purple. Now that spring is in bloom, we are seeing these seasonal colors popping up around the house in throw pillows, bedding, window treatments, area rugs, and table linens, and in other more permanent ways, such as small appliances, upholstered furniture pieces, and on walls. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders to perk up a room, and colorful backsplash tile is another great way to add a pinch of happy color to a kitchen or bathroom design.

Coloring Outside The Box

After adding some happy color to your home’s interior, it’s time to step outside! Spring calls for sprucing up your landscaping with colorful flowers that boost curb appeal. From potted pansies and violas on the backyard patio, to stunning flowering shrubs like rhododendron and azaleas in the front garden, the possibilities are virtually endless for adding a delightful dose of color to your yard. Other outside the box ideas can include painting your front door an inviting and eye-catching shade of dark blue, lavender or grass green, and adding a welcome mat or garden flag in a happy hue.
