How to Add a Splash of Colour to Your Home

Whether you’re looking to redecorate a room with coloured walls or simply add a splash of colour to a neutral room, we have some top tips to help you spruce up your home without the worries of overdoing it. 

Try before you buy

When it comes to paint, wallpaper and even fabric, don’t rely on spur of the moment in-store purchases. We highly recommend spending some time finding a selection of your favourite colours and patterns and taking home samples and swatches to try at home.

Sometimes what looks great in store, doesn’t work so well in the lighting of your own home so it’s always best to try before you buy. When adding colour to a room you want to be absolutely sure you love it, so take your time when making a decision.

Consider a feature wall

If you’re slightly timid when it comes to adding colour to your home then don’t be afraid to take baby steps. A feature wall can have just as much impact on a room and allows you to tie in more neutral colours to satisfy your sensible side!

Feature walls can pretty much work in every room, from your kitchen or lounge to bedroom and bathroom, feature walls allow you to take slightly more risks when it comes to bright colours and eye-catching patterns, so get out there and choose something that gives your room the “wow” factor.

Coloured accessories

The easiest way to add a splash of colour to your home is by replacing old and worn accessories, with new and colourful ones. Sofas and beds can be transformed with colourful throw cushions and blankets.

Consider replacing your curtains, using colourful trims and ties can go a long way in any room. Carpets and rugs offer a great opportunity to add a splash of colour to your home and throw in a feature arm chair and you’ll realise that you really don’t have to break the bank to transform your home.

Flower power

Invest in some plants or some high quality faux florals and watch the compliments flood in. There really is nothing like a big, bright bouquet of flowers or statement plant to transform a drab room into something much more vibrant.

Today’s faux flowers are strikingly realistic and often from afar cannot be differentiated from the real thing so they really are worth the investment!
