You may or may not know from my previous posts, that my husband and I are wanting to redecorate our home but I’m not sure where to start.
Because it is such a huge job, I’ve decided to try and break it down into separate tasks so I don’t get too overwhelmed by all the different requirements involved.
Interior decorators and even architects really take their time to try and master the art of colour matching. For this reason, you shouldn’t feel bad if you get baffled by the amount of choice available.
Think about the Room Size
It doesn’t matter how big or how small the room is, because the colour of the floor will always have an impact on the look and feel of the space. If your room is bigger and wider then you may want to try and choose warm or even dark tones. This can include walnut, and the floor choices are endless when you are looking at colours like this.
The best thing about choosing a darker colour is that it will make the space feel smaller, and this isn’t always a bad thing. If you have a room that is very open, then it can make it feel super cosy and soothing. This can work wonders for your interior design.
The Effects of Colours
The way that you decorate and use the colours for your walls and your floor will have a huge impact on the atmosphere of the room. Lighter colours will give the space a much sunnier and even a happier feel.
Certain shades of yellow tend to stand for fun and optimism, while white and even beige colours will give the sense of purity. If you want to give the room a peaceful and cool tone, then timeless grey is the best choice. If you have an interior that is dominated by brown colours then this will give a rustic feel, and on the flip side, black gives a dramatic edge.
Throughout the day, the amount of light in the room will change. Artificial light will give you a much different feel when compared to natural light. So, if you want to make the most out of the room, then take a second to think about the amount of light you want to have in the room and the flooring that will reflect this the most.
In the bedroom, you want light for night time only, but for the kitchen you want as much light as possible. If you want some ideas for your floors, then visit Carpet One Floor & Home.
The Bigger Picture
Don’t base the floor colour on the empty room you have. Make sure that it reflects the bigger picture. For example, do you have some furniture that you want to emphasise? If this is the case, then use neutral colours as this will help you to create the ultimate neutral canvas.
Red tones are great if you want to add some luxury, and they are ideal if you have any type of colonial furniture.
For a country feel, browns are the way to go. If you can match this in with your soft furnishings, then that is even better and it can really make the room feel much more harmonious.
Of course, if you are worried about not being able to match things in then opt for the furnishings before the paint.
Hope you have enjoyed reading this 🙂
