Outstanding Tips On Developing Color Throughout Your Home



Individual preferences for color are unique. Some people prefer bold colors while others prefer neutrals. The good news is that there is no one "ideal" color palette.

All of us have lived in homes that had too many colors.


This created a feeling of disorientation between the rooms. Sometimes it was necessary for us to leave the room.


You can avoid this fate by hiring an Interior Designer to help you with your renovations, or simply to advise you on the best colors for your space.


These are some tips and tricks from our interior designers to make it easier.


Choose Flow-Through Painting


It is easy to create a cohesive atmosphere by using a consistent color on the walls connecting spaces. In open-plan homes, it is important that you choose one color as your primary or secondary color.


It doesn't need to be white, gray, or beige. It must be the same color in the foyer, hallways, as well as the main connector room. You want your dominant color to dominate your space.


Attention to your sight lines


Sometimes customers may want more wall color options. Consider sight lines if this is the case.


Think about it this way: What rooms can you see if you stand in your living room? If you have views to the foyer, dining room, or kitchen, it is important that the colors work well together. It can look very odd if you have a different color scheme in each room.


Pick Color Groups


One way to make sure that your color choices flow from one room to another is to limit them to the same temperature.


Some people prefer warm colors like yellows, oranges and reds. Some people may prefer to use more modern colors like blues, greens and grays.


You can choose several colors and then use them all. You might pick a gray-blue color and a pristine one as you move from room to another. The same principle can be used for decorative accessories.


Ask your local paint store for a "tint of wall paint." You could do this by reducing the main color 50% and then adding white. You can make it darker or lighter. This allows you to create a sense of harmony without having to use the same color everywhere. Paint decks can be a great way to find colors that complement one another.
