Adding a new pop of color to your living room or a bedroom is something you might consider after moving into a new home or if you just want to try something new.

Of course, if you don’t know quite how to give your room the makeover it needs, the following tips will help you understand just why and how adding a fresh coat of paint (or some colorful decor) to any room will enhance the feel and ambiance.

Give your room a pick-me-up with the following tips:

The Why

Liven Up Your Living Space

Implementing a new interior design strategy can liven up any dull, drab room in an instant. For instance, if your existing color scheme in your living room is a simple monochromatic white, but you’re ready to make a change, painting it a new color — maybe an accent wall is needed, too — can help you accomplish that.

Create a Better Aesthetic

If you lack ingenuity when it comes to decorating, then the living spaces throughout your home may not offer the best aesthetic — at least for right now. As such, adding some color to a room can be just what it needs to make it visually appealing to both you and anyone visiting.

The How

Add Artwork

No matter the style, artwork can help add a pop of color to even the dullest and drabbest of rooms. That’s why it’s worth seeking out pieces that can help liven up any space. Whether you choose abstract pieces, landscape portraits, or human portraits, look for artwork that’s bright and colorful, and make sure it complements the overall design theme you’re going for.

Try Out a Colorful Rug

A colorful rug is another way to go when you want to add glow to a room. Choose a solid color or opt for one with a colorful, abstract design. It’s really up to you. Whether you decide to add an accent rug in your entryway or another area, choose a rug that adds just the right touch.

Consider Flowers

Bouquets of flowers are also a great way to brighten up any room. Consider brightly colored flowers like sunflowers, roses, pink peonies, red poppies, or blue hydrangeas. Whatever color type you choose, make sure it contrasts well with other hues and accents in the room. Otherwise, it might create an adverse effect.

Try an Accent Wall or Accent Pieces

If you’re serious about adding color in a big way, try an accent wall. This wall will be painted a different color than the rest of your walls and make the room really pop. Moreover, it will draw the eye in a way that’s both simple and aesthetically pleasing. Now, if you’re not up for painting, you can always opt for accent pieces like chairs, lamps, lighting fixtures, vases, or mirrors. Think about what would stand out in your living space and start looking for the items you need.

Adding a Pop of Color Successfully to Any Room

Now that you know adding color can breathe new life into just about any room, you can start making changes to your home to create better aesthetics. Adding a pop of color here or there can be as simple as buying a few accent pieces, adding wall art or a colorful rug, or painting the walls a new color. The choice is yours.
