Bold colours are all the rage right now. For many years, we saw an interior trend where less was deemed to be more. However, the opposite is the case in 2018, with bold colours and strong patterns dominating living spaces, injecting personality into homes. Understandably, many people do not want to completely redecorate their homes to keep up with the latest trends. If you’re looking to redecorate your home without the expense, then here are some tips:


Accessories such as cushions, rugs and lamps can make all the difference if you’re looking to inject a splash of colour without getting the paintbrush out. By combining lamps at eye level and rugs under feet, you can create a well-balanced room with just the right amount of colour. A mirror can also be placed perfectly across from your accessories of choice, reflecting the light and the bold shades.

Create a Feature Wall

If you’re happy enough to pick up a paintbrush, then painting a singular wall can make all the difference. This way, rather than spending hundreds of pounds on paint or spending day after day of your time painting, you can inject a splash of colour in only an afternoon.

Use the Light

You can also make a bold statement by using the light in your home. Features such as lightshades and window dressings can make a large difference to the way your room looks. So, rather than drab and pale curtains, why not make a statement with some bold and vibrant venetian blinds?

Use a Single Statement Piece

Some people don’t really like to accessories in their homes, preferring to keep it minimalist and modern. This is an admirable choice, and it doesn’t mean that you can’t inject bold colours into your home. Instead, simply consider how you can do this using one statement piece, artwork, a sofa or a statement chair are all good options.

Let Mother Nature In

If you’d like to inject colour naturally, then adding some flowers or plants is also a good option. Not only does the natural bloom add soft hints of bold colours, but it also injects fragrance and personality to your space. You can get many options that require little to no care, so you don’t need to worry about having green fingers.

There you have it. Five simple ways you can inject colour into your room without breaking the bank.
