Want to add a bit of color to your home but really don’t feel like getting the paint brush out? Staging your home for sale and want to add a few pops of eye-catching color but don’t want to alter those lovely, appeals to everyone neutral walls? There are lots of ways you can do just that. Here are just a few suggestions:
Dress Up Your Windows
Swapping out your curtains or blinds for something new bright and colorful can dramatically change the look of a room in just the ten minutes it takes to hang them. You can even opt to keep several different window treatments on hand for a certain room and then change them around as the mood suits you.
Throw pillows can add instant interest to boring seating. For a greater impact mix and match colors that are on opposite sides of the color wheel. Sounds a little strange but most of the time this clash of opposites visually works very well.
Simply going out into the garden and picking a bunch of colorful flowers is another very, very easy way to add a quick burst of extra color to any room. You can make the look even more attractive by choosing an unusual or eye-catching vase, rather than just a plain vessel to put them in.
If you want to make a bigger color change try changing the appearance of your furniture with a few slipcovers. Slipcovers are not just for sofas though, you can cover your dining chairs, kitchen chairs anywhere there’s a seat really. Again, keeping a few different sets of slipcovers on hand is an easy way to make changes all year long.
You can tie the various color elements in a room together and add a new central focus with a new area rug. You don’t have to spend a fortune, there are nice, cheaper rugs available if you shop around a bit, you do not have to invest hundreds in a designer rug!
