Use Blinds to Add a Splash of Color to Your Home

Living rooms don’t have to be bland anymore. Everybody now loves having splashes of color all around, getting rid of the white and stainless steel. Luckily for you, however, this doesn’t mean that you have to go out and buy new furniture. All you really have to do is update what you already have.

Some Ideas

Let’s say you have a white room and then purchase a white couch with white wood blinds. This is a very modern, minimalistic look that may have been fashionable a few years ago, but isn’t anymore now. However, the only thing you need to change to update your room and make it hip again is change your blinds. Why not choose some bright yellow or dark red blinds instead? Combine this with a rug or some throw cushions in the same color and you will really have something beautiful.

Let’s say you have a dark room instead. This is often a little bit more difficult to modernize because any splash of color can get lost in what you already have in your room. This is why it is important that you choose blinds like vertical or horizontal Venetian blinds, rather than roller or Roman blinds. This is because you can then tilt the slats a little bit, allowing light to come in. This will brighten the entire room up tremendously. Plus, you can control some of the light by opening or closing the blinds a bit more or less.

You should always start by purchasing the blinds and changing your accessories afterwards. The blinds often have very specific colors and you need to make sure that the accessories match them. Accessories include such things as pillows, rugs, candle holders and works of art. You can also decide to place some spotlights in cool places, lighting up your blinds for instance.

Fashion changes all the time and it can be an expensive enterprise to keep up with it. This is why, if you do want to change the main, and most expensive items in your room, you should always choose something neutral. Neutral furniture goes with any type of fashion or style. This means that when things change, all you need to replace is your accessories. Simply changing your blinds will add a whole new dimension to your room, making it look refreshed and new.

They say that it is not possible to argue about taste, because taste is something personal. This is indeed true, but the reality is also that most of us follow a fashion in some sense or another. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that you don’t have any choices in the matter. At present, the fashion is to use bright and bold colors, but it is entirely up to you to decide exactly which bright color you want to use to accentuate your room and turn it into your own personal domain. Enjoy creating something new and beautiful that is just you.
