Painting can be the most economical and fastest way to convert your living
room’s appearance from that of ‘rags’ to ‘riches’. Most homeowners are
aware of this but seem reluctant to begin this task. In many instances
this is due to the confusion that arises when it’s time to select
interior colours for their rooms. To the uninitiated how to choose
colours may seem like a daunting task. Nonetheless, deciding on the
right colours will be facilitated by following appropriate guidelines.
Making your living room eye-catching and matching the rest of your
furnishings is now within reach.
The Impact of Dark Colour Paint on Your Living-Room’s Wall
Some homeowners may begin by wanting to learn how to choose colors straight
from a color palette without looking into the influence these colours
will bring to the actual appearance of the particular space.
You would want to start selecting the proper paint color by examining
fabrics and other items like floors, rugs and furniture. All these will
give you an insight into your room’s colour scheme.
Many would prefer dark paint colors for their living-room’s wall. This
will be acceptable once the rooms carrying the darker colors are
sufficiently big and have ample light coming in so as not to look like
some sort of gloomy prison upon completion. Remember there are numerous
colours available and knowing how to choose the right colors for your
walls can become very puzzling.
You may want to paint a large and airy looking room with darker colours.
Some designers recommend painting one wall using an accent colour that
is darker than the rest. This effect stands out on walls that contain
abundant sunlight and applying a darker colour can lessen the hue of the
wall without scarifying style or elegance. In the world of decoration,
it is generally acknowledged that lighter shades allow for more spacious
rooms. What’s more, decoration of rooms will come easier with lighter
colour paint over darker colors for living room surfaces. You may have
noticed that lighter shaded walls seemingly move the eye looking upward,
giving the sensation of being in a larger room. The reverse is true for
darker colours, i.e., causing the eye to gaze downwards and thus giving
a feeling of less space.
How Furniture Impact the Lighting and Space
You are particularly going to look at how furniture would impact the lighting
and space of your living room. The furniture’s colour will have an
effect on the lightness or darkness in a room, and it will shed a light
on the precise lighting alternative for that room. One method that many
designers use is to bring along hue samples from accent colors that
match your furniture.
The fundamental factor to be mindful of is
viewing colors as possessing certain properties which can indeed add
charm and elegance to your living-room, whether contemporary or
