Estimated reading time 5 minutes

Are your interiors feeling a little drab and dull? Below are seven ways you can add colour to a home without having to resort to repainting an entire room. With these tips, you can experiment more with colour and get express yourself with your interiors.

1. Window dressing

Your window dressing can be an easy way of adding a pop of colour to your room. Bright, vibrant shutters can create a chic focal point for a room while giving the added benefit of controlling the light and privacy of a room.

Alternatively, you can choose colourful blinds for your windows, to add colour and vibrancy to your room. You can choose a solid colour or add in a more interesting visual element with a patterned blind.

Kingswood at Home provides made-to-measure shutters and blinds in a range of colours and finishes. We can help you find the perfect addition to your room, helping you to add colour to your home with practical and stylish window dressings.

2. Wardrobes

2. Wardrobes

Another way you can bring colour into your home is with the wardrobes. It’s a great way of incorporating colour into your room while also bringing practical storage solutions.

Picking just one or two accent colours will help to keep the room coherent and stop it looking overwhelming. A light sage green fitted wardrobe brings a classic and timeless look to a room, especially when paired with soft petal pink bed linen and a neutral-toned wall..

Alternatively, you can choose to bring colour into a room with a range of shades of the same colour. For a calming environment in your bedroom, you could also choose light blue wardrobes with deep blue bed linen and accessories, to add depth.

2. Wardrobes

Kingswood at Home can design, build, and install bespoke fitted wardrobes. With made-to-measure storage designed specifically for your room, every inch of space will be utilised. Plus, our wardrobes come in a variety of colours and finishes, with different storage solutions, so you can create storage that works for you and your interiors.

3. Sofa

Your sofa is the perfect opportunity to add a pop of colour into your living room.  A velvet sofa in a rich jewel tone, such as emerald green or golden yellow can quickly brighten up an otherwise dull room. A burnt orange sofa paired with navy blue walls will bring your room bang on trend.

If you’re unsure how to style a coloured sofa, you have a lot of options. If you don’t want to mix too many colours, use neutral cream-coloured cushions. Using a pattern such as geometric or animal print can add a little something extra without going overboard on colour. Alternatively, you can go for the maximalist look with brightly coloured cushions and throws.

4. Lighting

You can easily add colour into your room with the lighting. It can be as simple as swapping out your lampshades for a more vibrant colour. This way you can refresh them whenever you feel like your room needs a little uplift, without needing to buy a large piece of furniture or reach for the paint.

Alternatively, you can choose a statement colourful lamp. A ceramic table lamp in a bright red can be a fun addition to a room and can easily add colour to a neutral room.

5. Soft furnishings

Colourful soft furnishings are a simple way of refreshing your room’s interiors and adding some colour. You can keep it simple with one or two block colours. If you have a neutral-coloured sofa, you can go for pastel shades for a more zen room or pick vibrant tones for more of a punch.

You can also use your soft furnishings to play with patterns. You can mix and match different florals or different geometric prints. Or you can have a few block coloured cushions with some patterns in the same colour palette - with soft furnishings you have the freedom to play and experiment to find what works.

6. Rugs

A rug can help to make a room feel more cosy as well as adding a pop of colour. Like with your soft furnishings, you can choose a block colour or make a statement with a patterned rug.

If you have a large room, you can use rugs to section of areas. For example, if you have an open plan living room and dining room, you can have one colour rug for the living space and a different one for the dining area. Keeping to a similar colour palette will help to bring the whole room together and keep it unified.

7. Art work

New art work can really change the feel of a room. It’s a great way to add colour while also expressing your personality and taste. There are all kinds of ways you can add artwork to a room to boost the colour.

You could choose a few abstract pieces that all follow the same colour theme. Alternatively, you could create a gallery wall that has lots of different colours - in this case, it can look great if you try to find pieces that have at least one or two similar colours to bring it all together.

You can also play with colour with the frames you use. If your artwork is following a similar colour palette, using different coloured frames can add an extra visual dimension.
