Have you ever wanted to add more personality to your home without spending a fortune on renovations? Well, all you have to do is add a new coat of paint on the walls of a room or even spice up your kitchen using a warm color palette to add new life to your home.
Using paint, accessories with the same color theme and even a colorful carpet, you can make your home look like new even on a tight budget. Here are some helpful tips on how to use color to beautify your home.
1. Paint the moldings, doors or even shelves a lighter or darker step that the color of your wall. This can draw attention to the details of moldings and doors in a room. The eye is also drawn to trinkets, statues and even photographs displayed on shelves that are painted in the same color family as the wall. You can, for example, green paint your library if your walls are painted blue. A red shelf on an off-white wall can also give you the same effect.
2. Try to create an accent wall in a room. An accent wall is a wall that is very different from the other walls of a room. Usually it should be the first wall you see when you enter a room. To create an accent wall, all you have to do is paint a wall of a richer and more vibrant color than the other walls of the room. For example, you can paint the wall behind your entertainment system with a bright orange if the other walls of the room are painted in light gray. You can also create an accent wall hanging tapestry with bright colors and a huge painting on it. Wallpaper with a complex pattern can also be used on an accent wall.
3. Consider a color that can link the design of a room. If you want to rearrange your room, choose three or four items that can represent this piece. The designers suggest that you choose items that have an emotional pull on you like a pillow, a lamp and a reading chair. Use these to choose the color scheme for your room by going to a paint store and looking strips of paint that closely resemble those items. You can then use two colors for your walls and other colors for accents or furniture.
4. Learn more about how different colors can affect your mood. There is a reason why the rooms are not usually painted red. Since this color is usually associated with power, energy and strength, you may find it difficult to relax in a room with red walls. calming and soothing colors like blue or pale green light are more suitable for bedrooms, while yellow, which is associated with optimism and joy can be used for studies or home offices.
