5. Unexpected color
When it comes to color, sometimes you need to break the rules. Some of the best kitchen and bath designs incorporate color in unexpected ways. Remodeling projects provide the perfect opportunity to incorporate color beyond a fresh coat of paint or new window treatments. “Glass tile in kitchens or baths make it easy to introduce new color and texture,” Rotelli says. For those looking to create a more cultivated color scheme and palette, he also suggests thinking outside the box by considering a new faucet finish or incorporating new materials, such as metal. “I always encourage clients to have a little fun in the bathroom, and the sink provides a perfect opportunity, whether it’s a cast iron sink in a bright color, or a vessel sink that serves as functional art and a focal point for the space.”
If you’re ready for color, but still feel a little unsure, Rotelli has one final piece of advice: “When you do select a color, bring samples, swatches and chips home. Let them sit in the space and observe them at different times of the day. Materials can look much different in your home than how they appear under the bright lights of a showroom,” he says.
