I recently purchased a new home. All the walls are painted great neutral colors. Although the paint in the house is gorgeous, it was necessary to add color to a room (or five). Since I put most of my savings in to the down payment, I needed inexpensive ways to add color to a room. I would like to share with you five inexpensive ways to add color to a room.
Inexpensive Ways to add Color to a Room #1: Silk or Live Plants
A relatively inexpensive way to add color to a room is to add silk or live plants. If you shop around for great sales, you can find great silk plants for under $100 or so. You can get creative with the pot to add more color to the room. You can paint the pot a bright and fun color, or you can wrap the plant pot in fabric. Any way you look at it, a silk or live plant is a great way to add color to a room.
Inexpensive Ways to add Color to a Room #2: Paint
If you have some drab walls, you can add color to a room by applying a fresh coat of paint. The great thing about paint is that it’s inexpensive. In order to make sure you choose the right paint color for you, you can go to Lowe’s and request small sample sized cans of paint. Then, you can go home and apply a small sample of paint and see if that color works for you. Paint is a great way to add color to a room.
Inexpensive Ways to add Color to any Room #3: Colorful Accessories
If you’re an avid bargain hunter, you can find some great unique and colorful accessories. Adding a bright bouquet of flowers to a table is a great inexpensive way to add color to any room.
Inexpensive Ways to add Color to a Room #4: Fruit
A nice bowl of fruit is a great way to add color to a room. In addition, having fresh fruit around is a great way to encourage healthy snacking. If you get a great bowl and fill it with colorful fruit, you will add color to any room. If you know you won’t eat the fruit and still like this idea, you can get high quality wax or plastic fruit at any craft supply store.
Inexpensive Ways to add Color to a Room #5: Add-Heres
I just discovered a great inexpensive way to add color to any room. At Bed Bath and Beyond today, I found these great things called Add-Heres. Basically, this way to add color to a room consists of applying a wall sticker. Add-Heres come in may different forms. I bought a pack of four Add-Heres for $19.99. They looked just like some paintings that I wanted. If I would have bought the paintings, I would have been out $100 per painting. I saved about $380 by choosing Add-Heres! Add-Heres are a great way to add color to any room.
If you need some color in your room you can add plants, fruit, paint, or colorful accessories. You can also use a wall sticker such as Add-Heres. It is possible to add color to a room on a budget. For under $100 you can go from drab to fab!
