Find out how to make the best choices for the rooms in your home.
There is no need to be afraid to use colors in your home or apartment decor. Very neutral environments can convey sensations of artificiality and lack of comfort. Everything we don’t want at home, right? But, on the other hand, matching colors at home in a harmonious way does not only mean choosing the right color for the wall and ceiling; it is also necessary to make the right combination with furniture, fabrics, and accessories in the room.
Check out easy tips for matching colors at home. If your budget is tight, invest in DIY techniques for decoration:
First, choose a primary hue that you prefer but that also suits the purpose of the room. For example, in the rooms, warmer colors such as beige give the feeling of coziness. For an office, a combination of gray with a vibrant color can contribute to productivity.
This shade will then be used for walls, rugs, and curtains and may vary in intensity.
Furniture and Decor Accessories
Look for furniture and decor accessories in a complementary hue that matches the basics. If you want to achieve particular effects, choose several colors in the same tone or decorate the room in style on fashion (for example, different nuances or hues).
If you have difficulty identifying the complementary colors, follow the color wheel: they are the ones that are positioned at opposite ends. Blue, for example, is complementary to orange.
Be careful when combining colors of different intensities that is, different shades. If we put, for example, intense colors next to pastel shades, the eye will have to oscillate from light to dark hues and vice versa constantly. This will immediately bring about a visual disturbance, which can be transferred to the atmosphere of the environment.
If you choose white or light gray as the fundamental tone, the decoration will support vibrant colors such as red, blue, or pink. Use quilts, pillows, or accessories, such as flower pots or paintings, in these colors.
Tricks in Environment
Use the colors to do tricks in the environment. For example, painting only one wall with a more intense hue gives the illusion of greater depth in the room.
Attendants or stores
If you feel insecure when choosing colors, ask the attendants of paint or decoration stores for help. Also, seek inspiration for rooms similar to yours on social networks like Instagram and Pinterest. This way, you avoid a monotonous or overly colorful decoration.
Use Different Brushes
Finally, a tip for those who like to get their hands dirty: did you paint the walls or a piece of furniture recently and don’t know what to do with the remaining paint? You can store it and use it again whenever you want to if you use suitable quality paints.
