These Teal Accents Will Make Your Room Pop
Teal is a gorgeous blend of blue and green that evokes summery, breezy, beachy feelings. But when thinking about a color palette for your home, you might not consider teal. Or maybe you have considered the color but felt too intimidated to actually try using it. Fortunately, you don’t need too much teal to make a bold statement. Here are ways you can incorporate teal accents that will make any room in your house the center of attention.
In the Kitchen
Kitchen chairs or stool cushions are the perfect place for teal accents because they’re visible, but not a major element of the kitchen. Add teal tiles into your backsplash and try teal cabinet hardware to bring a bit more attention to this bright pop of color in your kitchen. For a bolder statement, paint your kitchen cabinets teal to give your entire kitchen a cool and fun feel.
In the Bathroom
Bathrooms are the ideal room in the house to start experimenting with teal accents. Bathrooms typically feature a lot of white and blue, so swapping out blue for a rich shade of teal can unexpected depth and elevate the look of your entire bathroom. Not ready to make a big commitment? Start by adding teal hand towels and a teal shower curtain. Take it a step further by randomly adding teal tiles among any existing white tiles. Or, go all-in with complete teal tiling and bathroom cabinets.
In the Living Room
Your living room gives you so many options to play with adding bright color accents. Teal throw pillows and blankets for the couch and small area rugs are the perfect starting point when trying out teal accents. You can also pick up a single accent piece, like a chair with teal upholstery or a side table painted teal. Another popular trend is to create an accent wall. Pick one wall in the room and paint it teal while keeping the other walls a neutral color. If that seems like too much teal, then tone it down by placing furniture against the wall or strategically hanging artwork and photographs.
In the Kids’ Room
If you want to amp up the color in your child’s bedroom or play area, then consider adding teal to the room’s color palette. Teal works well with dark blue, baby blue, pink, and yellow, so you don’t have to worry about clashing colors. It’s a fun way to step away from traditional colors, but still keep the friendly and whimsical energy you want in a child’s room.
Outside Your Home
If you love teal but are absolutely convinced that you can’t make teal accents work inside your home, then try painting the front door of your house teal. It will add a pop of color to the exterior of your home and add curb appeal. A teal front entrance will evoke calming, welcoming feelings in guests that they will carry with them into your home.
