Paint can be a great way to infuse a room with color. But it is 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.
Paint can make a world of difference, but it is a commitment, and one you have to live with our paint again.
