Are you tired of your monochromatic interiors? It’s time to jazz up your place, then. Perhaps your all-white home looked great when you first bought it, but now doesn’t bring you any joy? Maybe you want to add some pops of colour into your rental flat that won’t make you lose your deposit? We’ve put together some ideas to add some vibrance into your home with options to paint or to ditch the paintbrush.
Create a picture gallery.
Add picture frames with bold and colourful art to any room in your home or group together different shaped bright photo frames for a visually appealing wall décor. Maybe choose one sizeable vibrant art piece for a quick wall refresh. If you need some help to hang large pictures or rearrange your extensive collection of frames, the Handy Squad can give you an extra pair of hands.
Add some greenery.
Flowers and plants are perfect to add a small dose of colour and life to any part of your home – bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens. Plus, plenty of plants can also improve the air quality in your home, so it’s a win-win situation.

Change the lightning.
Lighting will have a large impact on the overall décor of your home. You can choose to go for a colourful statement pendant light to add a splash of colour or you can easily change the mood by choosing colour changing lights. Need to relax? Change your lighting to blue. Having a romantic dinner? It’s time for some soft red lighting. Our London electricians will be able to replace lighting fixtures, change lightbulbs and install LED colour changing lights on your gaming room walls for a futuristic feel.
Get the paintbrush out.
The easiest way to give your home a colour update is by painting it in a different colour. However, don’t just stick to painting all your walls the same tone or painting an accent wall one colour, why not play around with colour? Choose a few contrasting colours and be creative with tape to create a unique graphic pattern.
If painting your walls is out of the question because you’re renting or because it seems like too much of a permanent solution, perhaps giving a coat of paint to forgotten spaces of your home, such as the back of bookcases or skirting boards, could be a good idea. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty with paint, our decorators in London can paint rooms, repaint kitchen cabinets and even paint stairs.
For a quick fix, why not go for a colourful peel and stick wallpaper? It’s easy to install compared to traditional wallpaper and, if you get bored of your current wallpaper, it can be easily removed and replaced. Get the Squad to come by and install a beautiful tropical leaves wallpaper to your living room wall to feel like you’re away on an island adventure.
Add colour to your windows.
Who said that curtains and blinds need to be in neutral tones? Forget about light grey curtains and warm-white blinds, go for colourful curtains and blinds instead. These will add a fresh new tone to your interiors and can tie-in the rest of your colourful living room accessories.
Tile it up.
Give your bathroom an upgrade with colourful tiling or, if that’s too daring, why not choose some colourful grout instead? For your kitchen, add bright and dazzling splashback to make your walls stand out. At the Handy Squad, our team can tile bathrooms and kitchens or simply change the tile grout.
