Sometimes we underestimate how much of an important role color plays in our lives. If you showed the same product to a person, but in two different colors, you may get a completely different response from that individual on both products. If they like one color, but hate the other, they will have a positive impression of the first product, but a negative impression of the other. Yet both products had the same size, shape and function!
Given the importance of color, it is crucial that you find the right colors for the interior of your home. Not only will the right color give you an instantly positive impression of a room, but studies have shown that certain colors can help with our mood.
The best thing you can do to determine the right color for your home is to get a few sample buckets. When you get home, choose a room in the house that is small and rarely used. A large closet or storage space would work well for this experiment. Start by painting a part of the wall in this room with the colors you brought home. Applying these colors to a small part of a room will help you get a sense of how they will look in the rest of the house.
Performing this experiment is easier and cheaper than painting an entire room one color, only to find that you would prefer a different shade. And it is better to sample the impact of various colors at home, instead of relying on the visuals you get at a showroom or store.
It is crucial to think about how different colors can impact your mood. In general, softer and cooler colors can promote a quieter, more relaxed feeling among homeowners. This is why it is recommended that you paint the bedrooms in your home with softer colors that will put you in a happy and relaxed mood.
In contrast, brighter and more contrasting colors can promote a social atmosphere, which makes them ideal for the living room, dining room, and any rooms where you may entertain guests. Stronger, darker colors are more dramatic, which makes them an attractive option for a child or teenager’s room. While kids enjoy having space where they can unwind and relax, they also prefer a bolder color for their bedroom walls.
One of the best ways to get creative with the walls at your home is by painting three of the walls in a white shade, while adding a bolder, brighter color to one of the walls. This allows you to give the room a more exciting vibe, while preventing the brighter color from becoming overpowering.
