How to Bring Colours into Your Home

There is something about a space that uses colours to its best potential. It doesn’t matter if it is your kitchen, bathroom, dining room or your bedroom, colours add excitement and life to your room.

Add a splash of soothing pastel hues or invigorating shades of green, blue, red, or yellow, and you have the makings of a one-of-a-kind space that uniquely telegraphs your style. Here are a few tips to view your house through rainbow-tinted glasses that will help you decorate your house beautifully.

Solid colours

This is the season to be bright and colourful. The coming year is going to be all about those bright colours and vibrant hues. To get that perfect look you need to start with a strong base. There are quite a few approaches that you can take when it comes to colours.

You can pair multiple complementary colours, like a nice sea green with a violet shade; or you can play around with different hues of the same colours as a bright apricot orange with slightly subtle melon orange.



Textures help add some depth to your room. They add a certain tactile element to the surfaces and that helps elevate your design to a different level. The textures can be of metallic, wood or even masonry.

Stucco is a very interesting technique used by masons to give a slightly rough appearance to walls using a spatula. Today, stucco is available in laminates as well. The other path you can go for is a nice abstract texture like some geometric shapes. Textures help add a little more pizzazz to your room and help bring out the colours to their fullest potential


Not everyone has that taste for bright colour, and there is nothing wrong with that. Even a simple white room can look amazing as it is. However, a white room can alternatively be a blank canvas for you to use your creativity. Accenting can help break the monotony in your house and add some visual relief. Laminates are a great way to do this. A nice bright red or violet laminate overlay on a horizontal surface like kitchen countertops or cupboard doors can help you add that splash of colour you need.

Colours are quite fun to work with and help out in a big way when it comes to making your house look pretty. The best part? You can use them according to your design sensibilities. The methods we mentioned are just a few ways you can use to add colours to your home.

So go ahead and add some brightness to your homes with some colours.
