You don’t have to spend a lot of money to liven up your living room. Purposefully adding some color is great way to give your old room a fresh, new look. Consider the following ways you can add some color.

 

Paint One Wall

You will find that you can add a real punch of color by painting just one wall of your living room. This will really change the focal point of the living room without getting into a major decorating project. If your room has a niche, that’s the perfect choice for extra color. You can choose a bold, contrasting color picked from a floral fabric, or a subtle tone darker than the tone of the other walls.

 

Paint the Back of a Bookshelf

A great touch of color and interest can be added by painting a bookshelf two colors. Paint the frame and outside one color, and paint the inside of the piece, behind the shelves, with a contrasting color. The color will really help the items on the shelves pop out and look important.

 

Put Some Color on the Floor

A colorful throw rug, strategically placed in front of a chair or under a coffee table can add color and texture to a living room. It can be put on top of hardwood flooring, painted floors, or carpet.

 

Reflecting Color

Try placing a large mirror on a bare, boring wall. Choose an interesting frame or decorate a piece of mirror with cording or braid. If you have an old frame, consider painting it a bright color. The mirror will reflect the color from around the room and add light to the space.

Nothing adds color like pillows strategically placed on furniture. Whether you choose solids for a floral sofa or chair, or colorful, patterned pillows for a solid color chair or sofa, these simple additions will add comfort and just the right splash of color.

 

Add a Whimsical Lamp

Even if you have a traditional classic living room, you can add a point of interest by selecting a lamp or shade that is colorful or whimsical.

 

Get Artsy

A colorful piece of art placed in a living room not only adds a decorative touch, but also introduces colors and shapes you might not be able to use in a larger area. Try framing simple photos with colorful mats and bright frames.

    The large mirror trick seems also helpful for small rooms to appear much bigger. Thanks for the tips.
