As individuals are different, so are their preferences for color. While some people love bold colors, others prefer neutrals. There is no "ideal" color palette, which is the great news.
We all have been in homes with an overwhelming amount of color that created an unpleasant feeling between rooms. Sometimes, it was necessary to leave the room.
It is possible to avoid this fate by hiring an interior designer to guide your renovations or to simply advise you on the best color choices for your space.
These are some tips from our interior designers that will help you make the process easier.
Choose Flow-Through Painting
A consistent color in the paint on the walls of connecting spaces is a seamless way to create a cohesive feeling. It is important to choose a single color for your main or secondary color in open-plan homes.
It doesn't have to be gray, beige, or white. The foyer, hallways, and the main connector room must all be the same color. This is because you want that dominant color to dominate your space.
Pay attention to sight lines
Customers may sometimes want more variety in wall colors. If this is the case, consider sight lines.
Consider it this way: If you stand in the living room, which other rooms will you see? The colors must work together if you have views into the foyer, the dining room, and the kitchen. If you use a different color scheme for each room, it can make the space look very strange.
Pick Color Groups
Limiting your color choices to the same temperature is one way to ensure that the color scheme flows from room to room.
Some people will stick to warm colors such as reds, oranges, and yellows. Others may choose to use a more trendy color scheme like grays, greens, and blues.
You can also choose a few colors and use a variety of them. As you move from one room to the next, you might choose a gray-blue and a pristine color. You can also use the same concept for decorative accessories.
You can ask your paint store to make a "tint" of wall paint. This could be done by knocking down the main color 50 percent and adding white. They can make it lighter or darker. This is a great way to sync without using the same color everywhere. Paint decks are a great source of inspiration for colors that complement each other.
