If we had the ability to see more than the em radiation of 700nm to 400nm - respectively - what do you think we would see?
In terms of color and what not.

We know what they look like as we have equipment that detects IR, UV, etc.
Converting IR images to color-IR scale, see for example: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0c/Infrared_dog.jpg/332px-Infrared_dog.jpg

If I have time in class I'll comment on your interesting question.

In the IR region ice looks dark, not white, etc.
