Adding Color to Small Spaces
Nothing brightens up a room like lots of color. If you have a small space to decorate, turn first to fun and lively colors. If you live in an apartment or rental home that you are not allowed to paint, consider other ways to add color to your wall. Hang bright tapestries, rugs or blankets to your wall to add color and texture. Choose large paintings or prints to brighten up a dull wall. Even in a small space, a larger sized work of art can add pizzazz without making the room feel smaller.
Around your small space, add colorful accessories. Pillows, throw rugs, glassware and window treatments are great ways to inject more color into a room. Try mixing different colors and fabric patterns. It is traditional to have light colors and small prints in a small room. If you find that boring, expand your decorating creativity to include bolder, deeper colors and exciting patterns.
If you are unsure about adding too much color into your room, start slowly and gradually add things you really like. A smaller space offers the benefits of being able to spend less money on your total decorating project. So, if you fill your room and decide it just isn’t working, you usually haven’t spent a fortune and can start over. Experimentation is the key, as well as keeping an open mind.
