Using Color When Decorating Your Home

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

When you are decorating your home, you will want to incorporate some color into the home. You can do this in a variety of different ways. While you may not want to have permanent colors in the home, because of ever changing tastes and styles, you will want to use some color in your home decorating. There are many unobtrusive ways that you can decorate your home using color. They include using area rugs, accessories, slip coverings and linens.

Paint – putting color to your walls will make a world of difference in your home interior. If white walls look too pale, color is a blast of sunshine. You can easily change the color whenever you feel it’s time for a new look with a simple repainting job. In covering your walls with paint, start slowly. Gauge your impression after and if all is well, you can color all the walls of your house if you wish. Rely on your preferred colors for a better choice.

Accessories – these items are often inexpensive and diverse in variety. The colors and the stuff available are amazingly huge that you’ll just have a blast shopping every time. Add a touch of color to your wastebaskets, laundry basket, candle holders, photo frames, hand towels, and as many as you deem necessary for your home. With the evolving trends, so do colors alter. Take advantage of this. Purchase in-season colors to give some chic and modern look to your home furnishings.

Linens such as pillows and tablecloths, as well as inexpensive curtains, can bring color to a room easily. You can either choose to purchase these items or you can make them by going to a fabric store and purchasing the material. Many of these items can be made without even knowing how to sew as you can use an iron on hem product to make hems. This is an inexpensive way to get color into your home.

Another helpful items for adding colors are area rugs. They are not only useful but they are also beautiful. Area rugs work on any flooring and there’s always a size, shape. color and design for every living space. Even walls benefit from area rugs, as they can also be used as wall decors.

Along with area rugs, you should also use slip coverings as a way to add color to your home. Slip coverings can also protect the furniture under them, just as area rugs protect floors and carpeting. Because they are less expensive than buying brand new furniture, slip covers can be changed from time to time. Some people even change their slip coverings from season to season. Using slip covers along with area rugs, linens and accessories can add color to your home that can be changed periodically with little expense and effort on your part.
