One of the easiest ways to beautify your home – and create feelings of calm, rejuvenation and happiness – is to add a little color to the rooms and living spaces. 

Expand your rooms

Want a cozy room to appear spacious? Create the illusion of depth and height by painting the ceiling a light color, then adding complimentary shades to opposite walls. A monochromatic scheme is another way to boost the size of a room.

Brighten up the play areas

Perhaps your home has an area where kids entertain or host playdates. Inject bright, geometric prints into the walls and floors to match the youthful vibe. Or throw in bright hues like ultra violet, millennium pink or sage green. 

Spice up the kitchen

Does your all-white kitchen crave color? Consider a new palette inspired by nature – wood finishes, gray tones, earthy hues and black. In a dual-toned design, two contrasting colors are used in kitchen cabinets and countertops. 

Ready to get started on your color-inspired makeover? Talk to a First Hawaiian Bank Personal Banker about how a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) can help finance painting, new appliances or any of your remodeling projects. With a HELOC, you can draw the funds you need at a rate lower than most other types of loans. It’s a convenient way to check off all your home improvement projects.

“A HELOC is a convenient way to check off all your home improvement projects.”
