Top tips to keep the sun shining through autumn

Ever been short on ideas to transform your home into a vibrant and welcoming place? Last week we looked at how to create warmth in the bathroom during autumn.

This week our Hubbies are looking at the different methods to create a glow around the home using the colour yellow, to not only put you in a great mood during the colder months but also to potentially add value to your home.

Choosing the right shade

There are plenty of shades to choose from ranging from light and airy through to deep and dense – depending on what mood you are going for. Choosing light yellows or eggshells for the interior will make your home appear larger.

Warm Entrance

Paint the front door for a great first impression of your home and compliment it with items that have hints of yellow near the entrance. This may include paintings or decorative ornaments.

Enticing Living Room

A yellow feature wall surrounded by other items containing splashes of that colour also creates a crisp and consistent look and feel for a room. See the image below for a yellow feature wall with white and yellow curtains. There is also matching furniture and fittings.

Lively Kitchen

Kitchens are often the focal points of a home, and installing coloured cabinets and drawers is a great way to add rich character to it. You can team it with grey walls and countertops for a vibrant but warm space. If you’re not sure how to do the installations yourself, give your local Hire A Hubby a call.

It’s the start of a new season, so why not look for areas around the home you can jazz up with a bit of creativity?

This week our Hubbies are sharing five tips on how to use different techniques and styles to embrace the colour orange in order to create a warm and vibrant atmosphere in the bathroom.

Feature Wall

One of the best ways to add colour to a bathroom without overpowering the space is to include a feature wall. Choose a wall that won’t reflect onto the mirror, as this may leave an unattractive orange glow.

Mosaics

If you are going for tiles in the bathroom, try to incorporate a mosaic wall of different shades of orange to give the shower or feature wall added texture. If you’re feeling adventurous, try to fit orange tiles into the floor.

Cupboards and Shelves

Orange Fittings

Feeling spontaneous? Get yourself an orange bathtub or sink. Pick one that isn’t too bright. This vintage claw foot bathtub is the perfect shade of orange.

Hints of Orange

To give the bathroom a fresh look without burning a hole in your pocket, include hints of orange in the trimmings around the windows and along the floor. This is a great way to make quick, easy and affordable additions to a plain bathroom.

Also, don’t underestimate the power of a few good ornaments such as vases or soap dispensers!

We’d love to hear your thoughts on what you’ll be doing this autumn to create a different atmosphere.
