Unexpected Ways To Add Color Accents To A Room

Adding color to your home is important. The colors that you choose will help bring life and personality to your home. However, sometimes it can be a little frustrating to get the right colors in the right places. Luckily, there are many interesting and unique ways to add a splash of color to any room in your home.

Spice up the picture frames

Do you have a number of pictures around your living space? It’s easy to use these to add some color to the walls. Instead of painting a wall a new color, add a colored picture frame to the space. This allows you to get a beautiful splash of color without worrying about the time and effort it takes to paint.

This is a great option for those who aren’t allowed to paint the walls, due to rental contracts. Decide on the color scheme you want for the room and either find or paint some picture frames to match.

Paint the floor

Depending on the room you’re redecorating, you may want to consider painting the floor. This won’t work in every room, but for a bedroom, bathroom, or even a kitchen, painting the floor is a great option. It’s more cost-effective than getting new carpet, and allows you to add the perfect shade.

You can find a variety of stencils if you’re interested in a pattern, or you can paint the entire floor your favorite color. This involves more work than simply adding tile or laminate, but allows you the creative freedom you want.

Find bright or contrasting furniture

Are you looking for a fun and interesting way to not only add color, but a conversation piece to a room? Consider adding brightly colored furniture to a room to bring a dazzling color to the space. There are many ways to go about this, from finding the right piece at a furniture store to getting an old piece and painting it.

If you’re looking for a color that isn’t common, or is difficult to find, you may need to take the time to paint it. Check out a variety of stores to find exactly what you need.

Pick flowers

When you’re trying to add color, it’s easy to go overboard. If you want just a touch of color, consider adding flowers to the room. Bright, bold colors in the flowers you choose will help liven up the room and bring a feel of home to the space. If you’re concerned about having to change the flowers out, head to a craft store and pick up some fake flowers that will help you get the colors you want throughout your home.

There are several ways you can add color to your home, without going a more traditional route. When you’re adding color, make sure you stay consistent. Whether you are bringing the same colors through the home or just to a single room, ensuring it all looks great together is important. Enjoy the happiness your newly colorful space brings you.
