Sometimes we can get carried away when we want to paint a room, here are a few tips to make sure everything goes to plan and you are delighted at the finished product!
- Plan the room first
Make sure you know what’s going into the room before you pick a paint colour, take cues from fabrics already in the room and make sure the colour compliments them.
- Decide your focal point
If you want the focus to be on the furniture choose a softer tone, if you want the focus to be the wall then let everything else support the wall colour.
- Consider the whole house
Use other things to bring the spaces together, the house needs to have a positive flow.
- Tone of the room
If you want a room that’s really serene, you might want to look at cool colors on the color wheel, like blue and green; if you’re looking for something energetic and exciting, warmer colors like yellows and oranges.
- What colours are everywhere at the moment?
Know what’s out there and then make it your own, if you see certain colours all the time you won’t want to come home and see them in your house too.
