Wall Colour Combination Tips

Looking to decorate your 2 BHK flat at a township in Panvel? Start with the colour! When it comes to designing the interior of your home, the colour of your walls can make or break the look and feel you’re going for. That’s why it’s crucial to pick the right colour palette for your home. To help you make the best choice, we’ve got some tips that will help you select the perfect hues for your home.

  1. Define your aesthetic: before you start out looking at colour palettes, define what you want the look of your home to be. Would you like it to be plush and luxurious? Or would you like the walls to be subtle and let interior pieces, trappings and carpets convey your style? Defining will help you narrow down on possible colour combinations and choices. 
  2. Don’t forget the impact of colours: Colours have been scientifically proven to impact our mood and influence our psyche. Tones like greens and blues are known to be calming and have a cooling effect while warmer tones like yellow, red and orange are associated with liveliness, passion and brighten the environment. Factor in the mood you’d like each of your rooms to have along with your aesthetic.
  3. Start from the centre: Start picking your colours from the most centrally located room and then move to the rest of the house. Most likely, this room will either be your living room or kitchen. Usually, a soft neutral colour always works best for living rooms and kitchens. If you’re still not able to narrow down on a colour for the central room, a plain white, crème or beige will always get the job done because they are simple yet luxurious.
  4. One colour, different hues: A great way to build up the colour palette of your home is to start with one colour at the centre of the home and then using hues of the same colour along adjacent walls or rooms. Indirectly, all your walls will have a colour palette and a colour scheme.
  5. Try it all: Before narrowing down on a colour, don’t forget to try it out. Don’t just try the colour cards, but get small cans of the paint and try out a patch on your wall before finalizing it. Trying on the paint colour will give you a clear idea of how the shade will suit your walls and what effect it has. 

Use these tips and you’ll find out the range of colours that work best for your walls.
