4 Unexpected Ways to Add Color to Your Home
Aside from walls, you can paint a lot of things at home
If your home has a consistent neutral palette and you want to shake it up a bit with a little color, there are many ways that you can do to infuse a cheery hue or two. Throw in some colorful, patterned throw pillows, display bold and bright accessories, or even incorporate a striking new piece of furniture.
But if you’re a little bit more experimental, there are ways to introduce color into your home where people would least expect it. Check out these interesting spaces where you can add pops of color.
Painting ceilings isn’t an entirely new idea—it’s been done before. But how often do you look up at a home and see bright green ceilings?
Although it may seem a bit too big to swallow, there are many ways you can incorporate this idea subtly. Many would choose to go with a bold color, but you may opt to paint your ceilings in a more toned down shade. It’s also been proven that painted ceilings give the appearance of a taller space, so you’re getting twice what you’re paying for.

Nobody ever thinks to paint their trim and molding a color other than white, brown, or black. But you’ll be surprised how much life it can give a room when you try a whole new color. How about adding a cheery yellow to a plain staircase?
Unlike the ceiling, this is a little less adventurous but gives almost the same amount of impact. You don’t have to stop at trim and molding, you can also add color to your door and window frames.

We’ve all seen painted furniture pieces like bright yellow sofas or striking red consoles. But we don’t normally see color on the insides of these pieces.
Do something different by adding color to the backing of shelves and cabinets or paint the inside of your closet space and drawers. It doesn’t seem like much but you’re definitely livening up areas in your home one small area at a time.
