Wow, I guess it’s been a couple weeks since I did BAM or SLAM.
I finished painting the walls in the kitchen yesterday! Now I just need to take pictures. Last time, on BAM or SLAM, I asked for your help choosing grout color… I was blown away with the responses.
At the time, I felt like I was receiving a lot of comments for both dark and light, but I tallied them yesterday and the response was overwhelming.
BAM for light grout!
32 of you voted light and 12 voted dark. As you can see, we went with the light!
As I was researching the images for the grout BAM or SLAM, I was drawn more towards gray than white. Originally, we decided to go with the white grout for re-sale purposes.
I spoke with my mom, who has been a realtor for twenty + years, she recommended we stick with the white for re-sale.
She pointed out that most likely a potential buyer would walk in our kitchen, see the white grout and say “wow, I wish they had used gray grout. ” It is more likely that a potential buyer may walk in the kitchen and think, “why did they use gray grout, and not white?”…So the expert spoke…and we listened…white it is.
Now that it is installed and the kitchen is finished, I LOVE THE WHITE! It looks so fresh and clean, no regrets here :).
This week’s topic: Contrast in design.
High contrast in design creates bold, high-impact designs, bringing energy into a room.¬†
Low contrast schemes keep colors/values similar, blending together to create a relaxing, soothing background.
Are you drawn to interiors designed with high contrast…
or do you prefer interiors with low contrast…
This week’s question…high or low?
