How To Add a Pop Of Color To Any Room
Neutral color schemes in rooms are safe and timeless; however, they are not for everyone. As monochromatic and minimalistic design trends will never go away, it does not mean that you have to stick to them. On the contrary, many want to add a pop of color to their living spaces.
Adding a pop of color to any room is a great way to inject personality and energy into your living space. Whether you prefer bold, bright colors or soft, subtle shades, there are many ways to incorporate color into your decor. Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started.
Painting Walls, Ceilings, Trims, and Doors with a Single Color Accent
One of the easiest and most effective ways to add a pop of color to a room is to paint a single accent wall. This can be done in any color that complements the existing decor.
A bright accent wall can make a significant impact if you have a neutral color scheme. However, if you already have some color in your room, consider painting the accent wall in a slightly darker or brighter shade of that color.
Another option is to paint the ceiling or the room’s trim boldly. This can create a dramatic effect and draw the eye upward, making the room more spacious. Painting the doors in a bright shade is another way to add a pop of color to a room without overwhelming the space.
If you choose to paint all the walls in a single bright color, add accessories to make it pop more such as bright curtains and area rugs.
Painting with single-color accents is excellent when painting small rooms such as bathrooms.
Painting with Two Color Accents
Consider painting two walls in different colors to take your color scheme to the next level. This works best in rooms with a clear separation between the walls, such as a bedroom with a headboard against one wall and a dresser against another. Choose colors that complement each other, such as blue and green or orange and yellow.
Painting with Three Color Accents
For a truly bold and daring look, paint three walls in different colors. This works best in larger rooms with plenty of natural light. Choose colors that are complementary but not too similar, such as blue, green, and yellow. In addition, you can opt to paint the walls one color, the door another and the trims another.
Painting with Soft Hues
If you prefer a more subtle look, consider painting the walls in soft, muted hues. Pastel colors such as pale pink, lavender, and mint green can add a touch of color without overwhelming the space. Additionally, grays and tans are perfect while adding an accessory in a darker shade.
Soft hues work well in bedrooms, bathrooms, and other rooms where you want to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.
Using soft hues certainly does not mean that you will compromise on the pop.
Painting with Bold Hues
Now if you want a big “pop,” paint the walls in bold, bright colors for a more daring look. Red, orange, and yellow can add energy and warmth to a room, while blue and green can create a calming and soothing atmosphere. Bold hues work well in living rooms, dining rooms, playrooms, kid’s bedrooms and other spaces where you want to create a vibrant and lively atmosphere.
Statement lighting can undoubtedly add a pop of color to any room. Choose a bold, colorful pendant light or chandelier to hang in the center of the room. This can create a focal point and add a touch of color to the space. Additionally, f you have a neutral color scheme, colorful light fixtures like lamps can add interest and personality to the room.
Smart lighting is the newest and hottest trend. It’s an advanced way to light your home. The lighting connects to an app, smart home assistant, or accessory. You can change the color and brightness and automate and control them remotely.
How about green and red for Christmas, red, white and blue for July 4th, and so on? How fun is this? Your guests will love it.
Artwork can always make a room pop. Choose pieces that incorporate your favorite colors or that complement the existing decor. A colorful painting, photograph and/or frame can add a pop of color to a neutral room, while a bright sculpture can add interest and texture to a space.
Plants and Flowers
Plants and flowers are a natural way to add color to a room. Choose plants with colorful leaves, such as a snake plant or a variegated pothos. Flowers such as roses, tulips, and daisies can add a pop of color to a vase or planter. If you don’t have a green thumb, consider artificial plants or flowers for a low-maintenance option.
Finally, consider adding colorful accessories to your room. This can include furniture, sofas, throw pillows, blankets, area rugs, curtains, and more. Choose colors, designs and patterns that complement the existing decor and add interest and personality to the space.
