ProSource | 10/4/2015 | Project Tips

If you are mad about color, we applaud you. Mixing bold, bright colors is the spice of design life. If you prefer to color your world with a more subdued palette, this article is for you.

A baseline set of harmonious tones in your home gives you a great deal of versatility. It translates into a more calming environment. Plus, you can change out accent colors anytime you want. The same holds true for the soul of your home, the kitchen.

We want your new kitchen to be a design adventure rather than an exercise in frustration. We want to excite your imagination, helping to make your final design more unique. When it comes to the subtle use of color, design doesn’t have to be boring. Your ProSource Showroom team can show you how.

Among the creative ways to treat color, consider using a mix of materials and textures. Go tone-on-tone or gradate color. Make strategic use of subtle patterns. Install contrasting cabinet hardware. Incorporate unique design elements.

Along that line, did you know that ProSource carries intriguing elements like wood medallions? We know, right? They let you up your design game by adding pizazz to your flooring. And you don't have to break the bank to do it. Visit your local showroom or view the online product catalog to see our cache of design elements.
