If You Want to Increase the Value of Your Home, Paint Your Kitchen This Color. We already knew Americans have an obsession with the color blue, but it turns out, it's a phenomenon that translates to real estate, too! Zillow's 2017 Paint Colors Analysis found that homes with blue bathrooms (often powder blue or periwinkle) sold for $5,400 more than expected. The bathroom color you'll want to avoid when selling your home? White. Houses with white, off-white, or eggshell white bathrooms sold for $4,035 less than similar homes.
This California Kitchen Is Made for Holiday Entertaining. Kitchen designer Alison Pickart hails from a long line of engineers — her great-grandfather founded the model-railroad company Walthers — so it’s no surprise that every millimeter of her renovated double-height kitchen, in a 1932 cottage in Ross, California, is as charming and carefully plotted as a train set. “Every area around our farmhouse table has a purpose,” Pickart says. As a parent and frequent party giver, she created “stations” so that nearly every family member can partake in the prep work. In this house, there’s no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen. “It gets beat up and keeps on ticking,” she says.

While plenty of people use the terms "living room" and "family room" more or less interchangeably, they actually aren't the same thing — larger homes sometimes even have both — and it all comes down to how you use the space.
