August 21, 2020

The right amount of color brings out personality. But too much can make a room feel busy and hectic. So, most play it safe with blacks, whites, browns, and greys. The result is a lot of bland kitchens, gloomy bathrooms, and boring living rooms.

But, there is a way to experiment with color without taking design risks. Adding a pop of color to a room takes very little time and effort, and it could be all you need to add some warmth and personality to your space.

Below, you’ll find some trending tips to add a pop of color to each room in your home.

Kitchens are famous for lacking color. They’re either too white, too dark, or too brown. Many try to remedy the situation by painting their cabinets or adding a colorful tile backsplash.

Another option is adding a greenery or floral centerpiece to your kitchen table or kitchen island. Have fun playing around with flowers of different colors until you find the right arrangement for your space.

Your living room is the most important place to cultivate personality through color, as this is likely where you spend the most time in your home.

Add color to your living room with art. Art will not only add color but will bring meaning and depth to your space, making it a place that’s truly unique to you.

You don’t have to be a millionaire to buy art, either. Check for art fairs in your area to support a local artist and add an original work to your home.

Both art and table centerpieces are great ways to add color to a dining room.

You can also paint an accent wall, with colors like navy blue or emerald green. A trendy new way to add color to your space is to design a wall with paneling, creating a geometric design. This creates a statement wall in your dining room, with plenty of contrast to make this wall a focal point inside of your home.

Sleep and relaxation should be the focus of your bedroom décor. When it comes to adding color, that means throw pillows and blankets. Put chunky knits and quilts on your bed, to add texture and color. The addition of different types of plants such as succulents and aloe plants introduce natural green colors. Start off with a blank slate, slowly adding different decor pieces and textiles!

Adding a pop of color to your home is the easiest way to bring out its personality. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! Mix and match our tips with your own ideas to give every room in your home a colorful lift.
