Every person has a different preference in color. Some people prefer bright colors while others prefer neutrals. There is no one "ideal" color scheme.
We've all lived in homes that had too many colors.
It caused confusion between rooms. We had to sometimes leave the room.
You can avoid this fate by hiring an interior designer who will assist you with your renovations, or simply to advise you on the best colors for your space.
These are some tips and tricks our interior designers offer to make your life easier.
Choose Flow-Through Painting
Consistent color can help create a cohesive environment. For open-plan homes, it is important to pick one primary and one secondary color.
It doesn't need to be white, gray, or beige. It should match the foyer, hallways, and main connector room. Your space should be dominated by your dominant color.
Be aware of your sight lines
Sometimes customers may want more wall color options. You might consider sight lines if this is the case.
Think about it this way: How many rooms are visible from your living space? If you have views to the foyer and dining room, it is important that colors complement one another. It can look odd if you have a different color scheme in each room.
Pick Color Groups
You can make sure that your color choices flow smoothly from one room to another by limiting them to the same temperature.
Some people prefer warm colors like yellows, oranges and reds. Some people prefer modern colors like blues, greens and grays.
Multiple colors can be chosen and you can use them all. You might pick a gray-blue color and then move on to another room. The same principle applies to decorative accessories.
Ask your local paint store for a "tint of wall paint." You can do this by first reducing your main color to 50% and then adding white. You can make it darker or lighter. Different colors can be used to create harmony. You can create harmony by using different colors.
