Wall and Cabinet Color Combos for Different Rooms in the Home | MyBoysen

Deeper, darker colors can make a room feel cozy and intimate. It’s just the thing for a bedroom. Why not go daring and try it out for yours?

To keep the room from looking too gloomy, bring balance by choosing a lighter color for your cabinets. Keep things interesting by bringing in texture through soft furnishings like rugs and throw pillows. Make sure you have other sources of indirect light in the room as well such as lamps. Metallic accents work well with dark walls too!

Boysen Healthy Home | MyBoysen

For your walls, go for Boysen Healthy Home. It’s very low-odor—so much so that other room occupants can stay in the room while it’s being painted or while waiting for the paint to dry. Just make sure to open all doors and windows to make sure there’s still proper ventilation.

Does cooking feel like a chore? Get a burst of happy energy whenever you walk into your kitchen and paint it in bright colors. A more subdued pink matched with an enthusiastic yellow makes the space playful and joyous, hopefully inspiring you to try your hand at whipping up wonderful culinary creations.

Virtuoso Silk Touch | MyBoysen

For your kitchen, we recommend Virtuoso Silk Touch for your walls. It’s manufactured to have a surface protector so oil and dirt do not easily stick to it. Simply wipe your painted surface clean with a soft cloth and gentle household cleaner. It also comes in a beautiful matte finish worthy of envy.

White is a classic color for a bathroom. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with keeping to what works. Just in case you would like to add a bit more color to the space, however, try a shade of blue for your bathroom cabinets. Take inspiration from the water that cleanses and cools! Plus, blue keeps the room looking timeless and classy.

Boysen Permacoat Latex | MyBoysen

A 100% acrylic paint, Boysen Permacoat Latex is outstandingly durable, excellent at hiding imperfections and flaws, and is dirt-pick-up-resistant. It dries to the touch in just an hour, needs only two hours per recoating, and already looks great with two coats of paint. Moreover, you get thousands of Permacoat paint colors to choose from via Boysen Mix & Match stations!
