Home improvement experts know a lot about repairing and embellishing your home, and when it comes to electrical or security troubles you better leave them to professionals, however, there are a few things you can do on your own, and designing your home interior is one of them.
When it comes to designing your home and choosing your furniture, color is everything but still there are a lot of mistakes you could do. Choosing the right color for your home isn’t an easy job, so here are a few things you should avoid when you are choosing the colors for your house.
1. All white interior is dull
Even though a lot of people think they cannot make a mistake with white color, it isn’t true at all. White is, indeed, a classic, but why would someone go with the classic when the stylish interior is a lot better. Give your rooms a little color. If you already have white walls, white furniture, and white linen in your bedroom, be brave and pick a few pillows, pictures or other decoration in vivid color. Red, blue and purple color will give your room a little bit more cheerful appearance.
2. Color Zoning went wrong
Color zones are a really popular trend nowadays. However, not every color zoning looks nice. First, do not use this technique if your apartment doesn’t need it. Color zoning means using the wall to divide your room into different colored zones. If you already decided to do this, make sure one side of your room is neutral and color the other in some vibrant paint, but don’t exaggerate. If you choose two or more vibrant colors, your room will look more like a circus than a living place.
3. Choose the floor colors last
If you decided to design interior on your own, you have to follow some rules. Start from the top and finish at the bottom. Pick the wall colors first, then you pick your furniture and decorations, the floor has to be the last. It’s color influences the whole room which is why you have to harmonize it with the color spectrum of the place you’re rearranging.
4. Pay attention to color proportions
If you want to use several colors for your room interior, forget about equal distribution. Give priority to one color and then use others to accentuate some parts of your room. The primary color should be neutral or at least soft, and it should occupy at least 50% of your room.
5. Monochrome Interior
The monochrome interior was, and it still is one of the most interesting trends in interior design; however, people often make mistakes when they try to apply this style. Instead of buying everything in one color, you should use a neutral color and add items such as curtains, mirrors, lamps or even lanterns in some bright color. This way, you will still get the feeling your room is monochromatic.Read More
