The color red evokes energy and power when used in any interior space. Within the color spectrum, red is the most striking color. Consider these different ways of using red around the home.
1. Front door
Create an exciting first impression with a red front door. Whether your home has a modern or traditional design, a red door can fit any style. However, if you’re renting or are part of a homeowners association, be sure you have permission to paint your front door a different color.
2. Accent wall
Red is a great color for an accent wall. As an alternative to painting an entire room red, an accent wall adds a punch of color without overwhelming the space.
3. Kitchen and dining areas
Aside from the energy and power of the color, red also enhances the appetite. This makes it a great color to use in kitchen and dining areas. For the kitchen, you may use the color for the walls, the cabinet faces or the kitchen backsplash.
The dining area is more flexible, with many different areas for using red, from the walls to the chair upholstery.
For any room in the house, red can be an attractive color to add to the home. You may achieve this by adding red accessories, in the form of vases and paintings. This is a subtle way of using red as opposed to using it on walls or bigger furniture pieces.
Red is a holiday favorite, making it the go-to color for Christmas, birthdays and other occasions. You may also use it for decorating your home for parties and dinners.
