Increasing contrast is one of the ways you can immediately improve your design on all levels. Your layout should still work when you take out ALL of the color information (desaturate it all, take out all of the hue information, and leave only lightness and darkness to differentiate between areas). Just about every famous master painting still looks amazing if you desaturate the whole thing.
