Add a Splash of Colour to Your Living Room

If you’re keen to give your living room an overhaul this moment, there’s no better time to get started than right now. With the nights getting darker, you’ve got fewer hours after work to get some painting and redecorating done around your home and you want some natural light to see everything you’re doing.

So it’s best to get started now, before it’s dark at 5pm and you’re struggling to work out whether you picked up pillar-box red or magenta from your garage.

It may be edging ever closer to Christmas, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put some bright and cheerful colours around your living room. It’s one of the few rooms in your home where you don’t need to worry about things looking too bright, because you can tone down the hues with the right furniture. When you go for bright-coloured walls, it’s best to find a sofa bed in a neutral and light shade, such as cream or white, so the other colour doesn’t dominate the room.

Choosing to redecorate is a perfect opportunity to get some brand-new furniture for your room, as well. Whether you’ve been hankering after a new stylish coffee table for a while or you’ve seen a cabinet which would complement everything in your room, now’s the time to get it as you’ll definitely be able to justify splashing out at this time!

How bright you’re willing to decorate your room is entirely up to you. Either you could go for a bold colour all over the space, or you might want to embrace a feature wall idea so the brightness doesn’t take over. You don’t have to choose paint to add some colour to your room either – why not go for wallpaper instead? There are increasingly stylish and fashionable wallpapers on the market, so you’ll have a whole host of different designs to choose from.

If you’re not really someone who wants the whole of their living room to be bold and bright, the alternative could be to use the furniture and accessories in the space to add colour to it.

Find or make some multicoloured throws for your sofas or maybe even some curtains to add something a little special to the space. If you’re doing this, it’s obviously best to go for a neutral shade on your walls to avoid overkill. Making your own accessories for your living room is a fantastic way of ensuring it has a truly personal and unique touch to it, which is bound to make it even more aesthetically pleasing.
