The minimalist and monochromatic home décor style has certainly grown in popularity. Although this design style is both safe and trendy, it is ok for you to stray away from those neutral tones to experiment with colour.
Adding a pop of colour to your home may be easier than you think. Here are six creative ways that you can brighten up the spaces in your home to give them a new lease of life.
Artwork is a fantastic way to add a pop of colour to your home. The best part about this tip is the possibilities are endless. There is a large variety of art out there for you to choose from. Take some inspiration from online websites to see what kind of art styles suit your taste.
The great thing about artwork is it’s easy to switch out. You can even change your artwork with the seasons. In summer you may want to experiment with bright colours. However, during autumn you may want to switch out your artwork to suit tones of brown, red and orange.
Colourful appliances are certainly becoming more readily available. They are already a popular statement used in homes throughout Europe. Nothing adds character and a bold pop of colors like a red kettle or a pink microwave. With a quick bit of online research, you’ll find that they are easier to get hold of than you may have first thought. The only precaution you need to take with this is that appliances are not always the cheapest. So, they will be harder to switch out regularly as opposed to changing the colour of a wall. As long as you can settle on a specific colour for a while, it is sure to be worth it.
If you have never heard of painted kitchens, then you are in for a treat. By using paint, you can express your personality through your kitchen space. Why not paint your cabinets with pretty pastels or go bold with loud colours? Not only does it help to give your kitchen a new lease of life, but it also gives you a space that is totally unique. You can get a painted kitchen from Kesseler who specialise in giving you the kitchen that you’ve always dreamed of.
Their team of experts experiment with a range of colours, and nothing is off-limits. As well as the colour, they can also paint your kitchen with one of two distinct finishes: Silk matte and metallic.
Plants and Flowers
If you are afraid to experiment with colour, then plants and flowers can be a subtle way to help you introduce colour into your home. You can go big with a grand arrangement or keep it simple with a few stem vases dotted around each room. Whatever you choose, there is no denying that flowers and plants are versatile and a great way to add colour to your space.
If you are new to the plant and flower world it can help to do some research to find out which houseplants are the best for your home. If your space is prone to direct sunlight, some plants and flowers will suit that environment better than others.
Adding a pop of colour to your home doesn’t always have to mean big changes are in order. In fact, by doing something as simple as swapping out your soft furnishings can really help to brighten up and transform a space. Throws, duvet covers, and pillows are easy to switch up from time to time. Like artwork, you can change your soft furnishings to suit the seasons. It is easy to find some seasonal décor in your local home accessories store and now the options are becoming endless.
Why not brighten up your home with a floral duvet cover? Or switch out your neutral pillow for something a bit brighter. Now, with some online research, you can find some great deals on soft furnishings, and they don’t have to cost you a small fortune – what a bonus!
Often, a bright statement piece is enough to transform your space. A brightly coloured chair is a great example, and you won’t have to travel far to find one in your local furniture store. Not only do they grab your attention as soon as you step into a room, but they also nicely coordinate with the neutral colours around the space. This is a simple but effective way to add a pop of colour to your room and all it takes is a single purchase. You can search online for some statement piece inspiration to help get you started. Before you know it, your home will become the colourful haven of dreams.
