Want to add a bit of colour 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 colour but don’t want to alter those lovely, appeals to everyone neutral walls?
There are lots of ways you can do just that, and given that most of us are still spending a lot more time at home right now it’s a great time to tackle a few simple home decor projects.
Here are just a few suggestions:
Dress Up Your Windows
Swapping out your curtains or blinds for something new bright and colourful 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 cushions can add instant interest to boring seating. For a greater impact mix and match colours that are on opposite sides of the colour 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 colourful flowers is another very easy way to add a quick burst of extra colour 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 colour 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 colour 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 online, you do not have to invest hundreds in a designer rug!
