How to Choose colors for your Home’s Interior
We are offering a few suggestions on how to choose colors for the interior of your home. Interior house
The first place to start is to begin choosing colors with connecting areas. Connecting areas in the home have walls that extend to other areas of the home. Example: foyer, entry area, hallways, and stairways. Homes that have very open floor plans in the main gathering room can be considered a connecting room. The connecting areas of the home are not the areas to use individuality. A good neutral color in connecting areas is the best way to go. A consistent foundation that you can build on in other rooms is a good foundation. Some color suggestions are lighter choices of any of these color families tan, beige, gray or warmer cooler tones with a hint of yellow, brown, blue, or green.
The next step is base boards. If you are going to use various colors, we suggest painting baseboards white. This gives it a nice classic look, a great transition border between spaces.
This is how to choose colors for rooms. If a room is self-contained you have more freedom to choose colors. They can be more distinctive. Use your foundation colors as a guide and use colors that coordinate with the room. Rooms of your house do not need to match each other, unless you can see into one of the other rooms. An accent wall is a great idea, to add a little pizzazz. The way to choose an accent color is either matching with a piece of furniture in the room or with a color from an adjacent room.
