Believe it or not, colour can have a big impact on a home. While dark colours can make a dramatic statement, they often make the space feel quite cramped, whereas white walls bounce light around the room and make it feel bigger. Some colours add a sense of energy to a space, while others are more relaxing. So, if you’re redecorating a room in your home, you will need to think long and hard about what ambiance you’d like to achieve. Have a look online for some inspiration; sites like Pinterest are great for finding ideas, but here some more suggestions for adding colour to your home.
There are ways to add colour without spending a fortune or investing a lot of time, so it will depend on the scope of your project. Hanging artwork is one option and will make your home feel lived in, as it will portray a sense of your personality. You will then be able to draw out certain colours from the art using soft furnishing, like cushions and curtains. Try not to go overboard on one colour though, as this will look quite garish. Instead, work on introducing different tones and textures. You should also be careful to ensure that the pieces of art you select work well with the rest of your property and furniture, as something funky and modern might not work in an old traditional home.
Consider giving your kitchen a bit of a facelift with a vibrant backsplash or patterned blinds. Since you probably spend a huge amount of time in your kitchen, you probably want it to look the best it can be and as it’s subject to lots of wear and tear, you may need to give it an upgrade.
If you’re looking for a more unique way to add colour to your home, you may want to consider having a stained glass window installed. Not only are they stunning to look at, especially when the light shines through, they also add an element of privacy. For example, if you currently have a clear glass panel in your front door, passers-by will easily be able to have a nosey into your home. A stained glass window would eradicate this issue.
