White might be bright. but bringing color in always adds more character.Your new builder-grade home probably doesn't need a full renovation. In fact. the last thing you want after the building process is to add major projects to the list of things to do. However. you can try small fixes to make what may seem like a generic home more interesting.
What does color scheme have to do with layout? It's more important than you might think. Overly-complicated schemes have a tendency to make small apartments feel choppy or too busy.Focus on choosing two or three colors and incorporating them throughout the entire apartment. rather than in just one particular section.
Paint your moldingPlain white molding is to builder-grade homes as tile is to grout: you can't have one without the other. Some homeowners love the clean. bright look. but white molding can seem quite sterile. For a completely personalized look. consider painting your molding to add depth to your woodwork. Black molding creates a modern contrast. while a light brown makes for a more peaceful room.
Ideally. it will also be a wall that doesn't have any doors or windows. so that your new accent wall really stands out. without intrusion.Don't be afraid to make a statement: accent walls are meant to be eye-catching! Now is the time to play with prints and patterns. to add a few metallic accents. or even to create a gallery wall using some family photos.
