///5 Surprising Yet Genius Spots for Accent Paint in Your Home

After you’ve chosen the main color for your paint job, you may feel like the fun’s over. However, there are tons of ways to integrate color by painting in often overlooked spots of the home. The best part is the level of commitment is much lower if you decide you want to change the look of your space frequently.

When adding accent paint color to the home, sprinkle the accent at least three times throughout the room so it doesn’t look accidental.

Check out these ideas for accent paint to add a fresh pop of color to your home.

1. Accessorize

From dining room chairs to old wooden furniture, this is a quick way to add pops of color to your home. For the best results, be sure to thoroughly sand, wash and prime the surface before applying the paint.

2. Seek Within

Closets, china drawers, and inside of cabinets and drawers are all opportunities to get creative with color by painting them on the inside. Suddenly, something that once only served to store items has now been given another purpose!

3. Put a Frame on It

From window frames to picture frames, get creative by adding colors to your frames. Need frames to paint? Check out your local craft store for unfinished frames that you don’t have to sand and prime prior to painting.

Whether you’re trying to upgrade a bland floor, add contrast to a neutral room or give your space some unique appeal, floors, ceilings and interior doors are all viable options. Other often overlooked areas include window seats, staircases, and bed boards.
