Color is emotional and conveys different moods, this being said the color of a room determines the type of atmosphere. Choosing the color of a room can be both nerve racking and intimidating. So many colors, tones and hues oh my! Well I have a few tips to make it easy you see. So grab a pen and follow these:
1. Determine the function of the room.
- Deep colors should be used in rooms primarily used at night, the dining room, TV room or bedroom.
- Light colors go great in rooms with a large amount of natural light. Subtle, pale colors in bathrooms or dressing rooms.
2. Test the colors effectively.
- Hang large paper color swatches next to smaller trim colors and view the shades together.
- View the color combination together at different times of the day to see how the color appears in different lighting.
3. Prepare to be surprised.
- Testing a color won’t completely prepare you for a big change. Some color will appear brighter or bolder in a large amount. If your feeling apprehensive about using a color, try using it in small amounts through out a room. Decorative throw pillows or throw blankets in a living room or bedroom, table clothes, plates and napkins in the eat in kitchen or dining room in the prospective room color can help you slowly adapt to using the color in a great amount.
