Red is Ready to Wow

It’s no secret that one of the most exciting colors of the rainbow is red. Red is known as being the color of passion, energy, and confidence. Because red is such a daring color, it can be easy to feel intimidated to use it within our homes. But the iNSPIRE Q Design Team is here to help! We have 3 easy red home décor ideas to help you liven up your space!

Try a red accent wall or door

The human eye is immediately drawn to red, so what better color to use for an accent wall? It is a surefire way to perk up any room yet also add a touch of intimacy; a great choice for dining rooms. And if the room features many windows, the sunlight bathes the space in a comforting, soft red glow.

Not ready to commit to an accent wall? No problem! Another option is to start smaller, like a door. Painting a door red offers the same eye-catching pop of color without committing to something as big as an accent wall.

We have pictured a red-painted door placed against a brown stone building.

Accent with a red statement piece

Red can seem like a big commitment, especially when it comes to furniture. However, with this red home décor idea, it doesn’t have to be! Instead of painting your walls or choosing a red sofa, you can start out small. Smaller red pieces can add that energizing splash of color, whether it’s a scarlet side table for your sofa or a crimson bench for the foot of your bed. By starting small, you can easily position it and move it to different rooms to fit the look you’re trying to achieve.

We used our samba red end table for this red home décor idea. This little end table has a single drawer with a silver knob drawer pull. This red piece is placed next to a grey fabric sofa and has a coffee mug sitting atop it.

Use it in the kitchen

If you’re unsure of where to implement these red home décor ideas, the kitchen is a great place to start, especially if you want to go big with this color. Red is known to stir up appetites and start conversations, and there’s no better place in the home for that than the kitchen!

In the kitchen, there are a variety of different ways you can use red. Try painting the cabinets red. Accent your countertops with red stools, or you can even go for an entire red dining set!

This red home décor idea features three of our French ladder back counter height swivel stools. They feature an antique berry red finish and beige linen seats. They're placed around a white countertop for an eye-catching contrast.

Contrary to popular belief, there are countless of ways to use red in interior design. These 3 easy red home décor ideas from the iNSPIRE Q Design Team can be used in any space, big and small. Red is bold yet classic, and creates that strong first impression that you have been looking for.
