Add Color to Customize Your Home's Interiors

In a world where home décor options can often seem bland, you may be wondering how to colorfully customize interior spaces to fit your lifestyle and speak to your personality. Luckily, you’re not alone.

A good 25 to 30 percent of polled online shoppers are interested in customizing products, according to a consumer study by Bain & Company. This demand is driving innovation across industries, including home interior design, which is adding new color palates to their offerings.

So for those seeking to buck the cookie cutter trends seen in neighbors’ homes, try creating a DIY look in yours with the addition of bright, bold colors.

Here are a few design tips to add personality and flair to your home:

Seek Inspiration

Many design resources are right at your fingertips. Visual social media applications, such as Pinterest and Instagram, can help you envision how different elements, colors and furnishings may look in your own spaces -- serving as inspiration for décor projects and upgrades.

Also, seek out new online tools that can help you execute your plan. For example a free Web-based application, Splash by Amerock, offers a new interactive design and shopping experience by allowing users to truly customize hardware for cabinets and furniture. The interactive site and first-of-its-kind product line allows you to test various cool colors and shapes of cabinetry hardware and view the different looks on different style and color cabinets.

From kitchens and bathrooms to bedrooms and living areas, you can make your rooms pop with bold colors, truly customizing a room without much effort. The no risk decorating system and online ordering process makes it easy to wield your decorating prowess. To view how fresh, fun colors may look in your home, visit

Bursts of Color

A great new trend for a bold, bright look is the addition of bursts of color. You can eliminate the need for a complete overhaul while making a statement. For example, paint just one accent wall in your kitchen, or add a large colorful pillow or throw to your living room set.

Another great way to achieve color is to replace the standard hardware on your cabinets and furniture with custom options. Hardware is easy to swap out and can give your pieces a fun, fresh makeover at a much lower cost and hassle than a replacement.

This update is so easy to make you can change hardware as often as the seasons, if you are so inclined. And for kids’ bedrooms, it’s an especially easy way to transform the look of the room as kids grow and their tastes change. To learn more about hardware, visit, and also visit Splash by Amerock to check out their 20 unique color options ranging from choices like Firecracker, Dragonfruit and Surfside, to name a few.

When it comes to your home, don’t settle for plain and forgettable. Make it your own with colorful touches.
