Whether you’ve recently moved into a new place that needs a lot of work, or you find yourself wanting to spruce up the space you currently live in, your brain is probably running with all of the ideas you have. The renovation process can be quite tiring, so add to that a range of ideas that you’re not even sure will work, and it can get so much more complicated. But if there’s one thing that always works, it’s color. Color can really transform the look and feel of a space, and ensure that it gets an instant update. And here’s how you can do it.
Of course, one of the very first ways you can ensure that you bring the right amount of color into your decor is with paint. Whether you choose to use a professional painting company or do it yourself, you can completely change the look of a room by sprucing up the walls. To do this, you might like to do a feature wall for a big influx of color, or even paint the entire space if you really want a dramatic effect. At the same time, you may also want to think about using wallpaper, especially if you want a printed effect.
Next, there’s also the flooring. Because you can often use flooring to ensure that you bring the right amount of color into a space, or even balance out the colors that you want to work with. More often than not, people want to use neutral flooring choices, and this can be a great way to bring your colors together. But, it’s not your only option. You could choose to bring color into the room with your flooring and go for brighter carpets and rugs to shake things up.
But not everyone wants to use color in such a big way. Because color can be quite intimidating and you often worry that you’re going to get it wrong, or that it will be too much. If this is how you feel, then you should definitely think about using accent colors instead. Accent colors are great to add in around the room, with textiles or finishing touches and they can really pull a look together and transform the space as much as bigger blocks of color.
Then, you could also think about using color pops in some of your larger pieces too. If you have a neutral backdrop, you might find that you can use color to spruce up the space and add a kind of quirky feel to it. From sofas to the fireplace, you can strategically add in color in large blocks, that really adds to the space.
And if you’re really feeling adventurous, you could definitely think about going with a color combination that really stands out. To do this, you could use the upcoming color trends and complementary palettes to bring a lot of color into the space, but ensure that it all works well together for maximum effect.
