Windows 8.1 Start Button Changer is a freeware from door2windows which lets you easily change the start button in Windows 8.1.
 
How To Use:
 
Download and run the app.
 
Click the Change button.
 
Browse and open the image which you want to display as the new start button. The app will automatically resize the image for you so it is not necessary for the image to be of specific dimensions.
 
The Windows Explorer will restart automatically and the new start button will be displayed.
 
To revert to the original start button, click the Restore button.
 
Right-clicking the Change button will provide you the options to change only the default image or only the mask image.

Excellent. Customization is always a good thing.

Does this allow you to specify areas that take on the accent colour, like the current start button does?

 

(Also does it replace the icon on the charms bar?)

Does this keep the animation that currently plays when you hover over it?

No, but thanks for the idea. I will make a different app for that.
