Paint can be a great way to infuse a room with color. But it’s also a commitment; once you paint a wall or ceiling, you either have to live with the color or go through the time and expense of painting again.
Luckily, you don’t need to paint a room in order to add color; there are plenty of ways to add pops of color to your space—no paint (or commitment) necessary.
A recent article from realtor.com outlined ideas to add color to a space without painting any walls, including:
- Switch up your lighting. Changing your lighting can also change the appearance of your space; depending on the bulb, lighting can make your color scheme look warm and cozy (bulbs between 2000K and 3000K) or cool and bright (6000K to 100,000K)—no painting required.
- Add color through textiles. Textiles, like throw pillows and blankets, can be a great way to experiment with color in a room—without the expense or commitment of painting.
- Add a colorful accent piece. A bold accent piece (like a statement couch or chair) can be a great way to add functionality, visual interest, and a pop of color to your space. Incorporating color through furniture pieces also gives you more flexibility; if you decide to change up your color scheme, you can just swap furniture between rooms—flexibility you don’t have with paint.
