Home Renovation

Colour schemes define the style of each room within your home renovation. They are the secret to determining the room’s personality and the vibe it will give off once completed with architectural structures and furnishings – so choosing the right scheme for your home is essential! It’s worth noting that the colour palettes you decide on do not need to be based on just wall paints but the accessories and furnishings you wish to incorporate, such as; wall art, black wall frames, sofas, cushions, throws and more!

The colour palettes you choose indicate the mood the room will give, so whether you want to create a cosy and quiet study to an inviting and loud living room, you will need to explore different interior styles and schemes that can do just that. For example, perhaps you would go for dark woods and rich browns for the study and deep pinks and yellows for your loud living room. 

Establishing the colour palettes you want to incorporate in your home can be tricky as there are so many styles to choose from, such as contemporary style, eccentric style, modern, chic and so on follow their individual colour schemes and styles using materials, patterns and textiles.

How to effortlessly combine colour palettes throughout the home

Deciding the colour palettes you want to include throughout your home is also essential in improving the sense of flow from room to room. Doing this will effectively give your home a more professional interior. Move effortlessly from room to room, knowing that each will fulfil their characteristics whilst looking great together if the doors are left open between different rooms on the said level. 

In saying this, this doesn’t mean you should paint every room the same colour or that each room needs to have the exact interior style within each. You can create a seamless stream between colour palettes using accent colours and prominent furnishings. For example, if you have one room with pink walls, you can place a pink accent chair in line with the door or the pink room. However, these accent features don’t always need to be on show throughout the doorways, but still, consider intertwining combined colours within each room to keep the flow throughout. 

How lighting can affect the colours in the room

When choosing colour palettes for your home renovation, it is vital that you understand the lighting within each room and how the colours you choose could ultimately change depending on this factor. For example, suppose the room you are changing is filled with lots of natural lighting and doesn’t need much artificial light. In that case, consider a darker colour palette as it will be uplifted by the natural light given. We recommend going for something other than darker palettes if you use a lot of artificial light, as it can make the room feel extremely small – unless this is the vibe you are going for!

Lighting also affects how certain colours come out, so we recommend that if it is the walls you are painting, you sample these colours before committing. Witness them during the day and at night to get a complete understanding of how they will come out. This goes for your furnishings too, but it won’t have an effect as large as it would for the colours of your walls. 

What size are the rooms you’re renovating?

How you decorate a space largely depends on the size or layout of the room you’re working on. If your space is relatively small, you might want to consider a white or neutral colour palette to give the optical illusion that your space is bigger than it is. By doing this, you will be optimising the space to its full potential, and then you can consider introducing pops of colour that will add warmth and depth to the room. 

Colour psychology

If you didn’t know already, every colour has its own connotations, and they are primarily considered by interior designers when developing home renovations. Colours have the power to affect our mood and energy, so when you decide on your colour palette, it could be useful to choose depending on the vibe you want each room to give. For example, green, blue and purple influence relaxation, so they are mainly recommended in bedrooms and living rooms. 

To conclude

Colour palettes are essential to your home renovation as they give you a base to work from. To develop the overall interior of your home, you will need the scheme to follow, and it will all come together a lot easier once you know the direction you want to move in. So be sure to consider the above article when choosing your colour palettes for your home reno, and it’ll soon enough look like an interior design haven.
