pops of color

Are you planning on selling your Bend Oregon home in the coming months? If your home’s interior has been painted neutral colors and you’re concerned that it won’t stand out from other Bend Oregon homes for sale, try adding color “pops” throughout your home.

How to Use Color Effectively.

To get started with using small doses of color in your home your goal should be to focus on specific areas of each room rather than painting entire walls. For example: dark blue has been a very popular color this year that many homeowners are using in their homes, you could use dark blue on one wall in the dining area of your home to create a focal point or draw attention to the rooms architectural details..

For areas like the kitchen you could coordinate using blue with lime green, yellow or purple to paint one set of cabinets or one wall and then trade out your kitchen table for a white kitchen table and chairs because, pairing white furniture with pops of color can add a relaxed atmosphere to any kitchen or room of the house.

Don’t Want To Use Paint? No Problem.

If you’re not in the mood to use specific pops of color in your home you can still use color by adding colorful accessories like pillows, rugs, blankets or even artwork. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your colors and even use orange pillows or accessories because, these color pops will help a room to seem more inviting.

Last of all, but most important, if you’re going to use pops of color in your home, especially darker colors like greens or blues, make sure that you stage the lighting in those rooms of your home effectively because, darker colors can make a room feel smaller if the right amount of lighting isn’t used.
