How to use colour in your home

As we’re all counting down the days until daylight savings kicks in, we’re missing that extra bit of light in our homes.

Luckily, there are ways you can counteract the darkness we so often feel come 4pm.

By selecting the right colours to incorporate into your home, you can create a bright, warm, and welcoming atmosphere in your home, long before the clocks go forward.

Colourful windows & doors 

Don’t underestimate the ability of colour to transform a space. Colour can have a massive influence on the overall atmosphere and even give the impression of a larger or smaller space.

One of the best ways to introduce colour into your home is to make a bold statement with colourful window and door finishes. You can then select window treatments to complement the frames with decorative curtains and blinds.

If you’re looking to add warmth, steer away from cooler colours (like white) and opt for rich shades of mahogany and rosewood.

Colourful paint

Paint is a great way to upcycle a drab TV stand or bookcase in your home, as well as useful in creating a vibrant feature wall.

Take a trip to B&Q and gather some paint samples. It can be easy to gravitate to cream, magnolia and ivory but consider other shades across the colour spectrum.
