Sofa in the room

The easiest way to change the look of a room is with color. A colorful door, accent wall, or piece of furniture may be all it takes to create a whole new look. If you need inspiration on the best ways to incorporate color into your home, look no further than HGTV or Pinterest. Look at the rooms you are planning to update and pull some inspiration. Color doesn’t have to cover everything but you can add a favorite that matches the room’s personality and use it in many ways.
