World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Designing a colorful and classy living room

No matter what time of year it is, you can make it feel like spring all year long in a cozy and colorful living space designed to fit your personality and needs. You can do a complete revamp of the room with a new paint job, furniture and maybe even knocking a wall down. Whether you go big or go small, you'll need outlet covers to match your fresh design. Of course, not everybody is up for a complete remodeling job, but that doesn't mean you can't change the entire tone of a room with a few simple additions, whether it's adding some colorful throw pillows or throwing down an Oriental rug. 

Picking a color scheme and making it stick 
If your favorite colors are bold and bright, splash them all over the walls and get furniture to match if you'd like. Keep in mind though that too much of a good thing may drive you up the wall eventually. Real Simple magazine suggested using white or another neutral colors to offset the vivacious color scheme you've chosen. The contrast will make both colors pop even more than before and you won't end up with a room that looks too "matchy". Switch Hits has plenty of collections that use bright colors including Colorful Nature Relief.

The Wild Grass Red decorative outlet cover is the perfect choice for a room with a red or orange color scheme. If blue is more your hue, the Japanese Maple Leaf blue should be right up your alley. According to HGTV, a consistent color scheme can also give the room the illusion of being more spacious than it actually is. 

If more subtle tones such as off white or peach are more your style, check out the Shapely Patina collection, where you'll find muted tones such as Autumn Brass. Another option that will make a statement without shouting is the collection of Hardwood switch plates. 

Whether your style is loud or quiet, choosing different hues of the same color is another way to make your living room look larger and more inviting. 

Picking lovely patterns and accessories for your pad 
‚ÄčOnce you have your color squared away, feel free to experiment with different patterns. A paisley or floral pattern that's a slightly lighter hue than the main paint job will complement the room perfectly. Use these patterns in the form of curtains, furniture cover or the furniture itself. To add a natural touch to the room add some hanging plants, or a nice flower arrangement on a central piece of furniture.     

No matter what your personal style is, there are plenty of ways to make your home a reflection of who you are.
