How to Use Bold Paint Colors in Your Home

Many people would like to use bold paint colors in their homes in Boise ID, but they’re afraid to take the plunge and paint a whole room bright red, for example. If it doesn’t turn out well, it could take lots of work–and more money–to cover it up with a more neutral shade.

If you want to try introducing bold hues into your paint scheme, never fear! We have some ideas that will help you brighten your interiors without risking too much. Try one or more of our high-impact, low-investment ways to use your favorite dramatic colors in your home without feeling overwhelmed.


A whole room painted red can definitely be overwhelming. One of the best ways to use it is on dining room walls above crisp white wainscoting.


Use this soft hue in a small powder room to create a flattering atmosphere.


In a kitchen with white or natural wood cabinetry, yellow can add cheer and warmth when painted on one wall.


Black is a great accent color that can add panache and formality to most color schemes. Paint a mantel or stair rail in satin or semi-gloss black for instant impact.


Studies have shown that a green environment can boost productivity. Paint the desk wall of your home office in your favorite shade of green so you can absorb its vibes while you work.


Bedrooms are the classic place for blue paint. If you’re leery of an entirely blue room, just paint the trim and doors blue, or use a pale sky-blue shade on the ceiling.

You can also test bold colors on small, low-risk places in your home, such as the kitchen island, bathroom vanity cabinet, or furniture such as shelving units or dressers.
