5 Ways to Add a Pop of Color to Any Bedroom

Is your space in desperate need of a color makeover? Use these helpful tips to add a little dose of fun and transform any boring bedroom!

Picking the perfect color scheme for a bedroom can be a difficult task. With countless decisions to be made, many people are often left with a room full of neutrals due to a fear of color commitment. If your space is suffering from Plain-Jane syndrome, here are some perfect and easy ways to add that much-needed pop of color! 

Patterned Rugs

Adding an accent rug is a great way to transform any bedroom. Choose one with fun patterns and bright colors to dress up a plain space. Small accent rugs and runners can add an interesting pop of color to otherwise empty floors, while large area rugs can serve as a focal point for the entire room. 

Colorful Accent Chairs

Brighten up any simple work space with a fun and colorful desk chair. Choose a plain metal or wooden chair, and give it a makeover with a fresh coat of paint. Or find an upholstered one with a funky, eye-catching pattern.  

Fun Throw Pillows

Create a whole new look by pairing any plain, neutral bedding with colorful throw pillows. Whether you pick a couple of coordinating ones or ten of all shapes, sizes and patterns, pillows are the perfect way to take your bedroom color palette to the next level. And, whenever your design tastes change later, it's cheaper to just switch out your throw pillows than pick a whole new bedding set or wall color. 

Playful Curtains

Deciding on the right color or pattern for curtains can be a lengthy and tricky process, but once you find the perfect set, your room will be transformed! Choose curtains with unique designs and bright colors to add a whole new element to your space. 

Ambient Lamp 

Finding the right lighting is a key part of any bedroom design plan, so why not incorporate some color? Choosing ambient lamps that also offers a dose of color is a great way to change the overall look of the room.
