Deck the walls with shade and colours! Fa la la la la la la la! It’s the holiday season and that means getting your home ready with decorations. But what if during the holidays, you could spruce up your space in a special way that lasts beyond the season? Gather up your paint brushes and rollers; it’s time for you to add some colour!
Not only is this a simple way to completely transform your space but it also doesn’t require any pull-downs at the end of the month. Now that’s what we call a win-win! But before you round up the family for a painting weekend, let’s look at a few unique ways you can add some fresh colour to your home.
- Create an accent wall
An accent wall is a perfect way to give your home that extra pop during the holiday season. It looks fantastic, makes an impact and works wonderfully in any room in your home. So go ahead and grab your paint rollers and let the paint loose on one of the walls in your kitchen, living room or family room.
- Spruce up the front door
The front entrance of your home is one of the first things your guests see when they visit your home for the holidays, so why not touch up your front door with a fresh coat of paint? It’s sure to have your guests eagerly wondering what the inside of your home looks like.
- Paint your kitchen cabinets
If painting the front door or adding an accent wall seems like way too much work for you, consider an easier interior revamp like painting your kitchen cabinets to give the busiest space in your home a nice holiday aesthetic.
- Repaint the whole house
Maybe your home is long overdue for a makeover. You can use this holiday season to revitalise your home by getting it repainted. Naturally, this is not a one-man job or even a family job, unless you plan to round up your 25 cousins. So consider getting in touch with a professional painting company to get the job done, while you enjoy glasses of sorrel and slices of fruit cake. Your home will be looking as bright and new as the holiday lights your neighbours have put up. You’ll be rushing to invite your friends and family over just so that they can get a look at your freshly painted home.
Now you’re probably excited to get started on the painting seeing that the holidays are just around the corner, but let’s not forget the most important factor – choosing the right colour. Yes, you are painting your home to complement the festive season but you should keep in mind that this new colour will be in or on your home beyond the holidays. Consider choosing a colour that is vibrant but still manages to provide a calm ambience to your space. The colours you use will not only affect the look of your home but they will also influence your mood. A few colours you can consider are:
- Yellow - lifts your mood and boosts your energy
- Orange - livens up any space and makes a room appear more vibrant
- Purple - has a calming effect on the mind; embodies luxury
- Green - brings nature in; makes a room more soothing and restful
- Red - brightens up a room, helps to stimulate a space and can add a feeling of intimacy
Naturally, you can play around with the different shades for each colour but feel free to explore and mix-and-match to find the right one for your home. Whichever colour you choose, be sure to make it pop! You won’t regret it.
