The colors that surround us have a very huge impact on our perceptions and moods. Colors and how they are placed can make us feel comfortable or disconnected. This is why it is important to learn a few home decorating tips. To create a warm, welcoming yet vibrant environment throughout your home, you need a balanced color scheme.
Creating color flow
You can make use of a fan deck to help you choose the shades of color you need. One of the easiest ways to come up with a balanced color scheme is to use darker and lighter shades of the same color throughout your home. Create continuity by choosing hues with the same undertones. Pick up colors from artwork, furnishings, or fabrics as sources of color inspiration.
Start with the biggest room
You can start by picking colors for the most centrally located room. This is likely to be your kitchen or living room. If you’re having a hard time picking colors, you can choose a neutral hue, such as white, for the main room. This will make it easier to choose colors for the other rooms.
Alternatively, you can start with the room you want to have the boldest color and work your way downwards to softer, more subdued colors for the other rooms. Feel free to experiment and maximize on creativity.
Building your palette with shades of the same hue
Once you have picked a color for the first room, you can go with shades of the same hue for adjacent rooms. You can even opt for a lighter color by having the same color mixed with white at the paint store. This method gives you home depth and interest. You can also be assured that the colors will go well together.
When you have more of an open plan space or much of the house is visible at once, it is especially important to pick colors that blend. A useful tip is to use shades or tints of the same hue. Another way to go about it is to use the environment as inspiration for the space.
When it comes to connecting spaces, it’s a safer bet to go with neutral colors, especially if the other rooms have more saturated colors. Alternatively, if you opt for soft neutrals in your rooms, the connecting spaces can be a great place to experiment with richer colors.
