Improving the Atmosphere within your Home
The inside of your home or apartment should be your sanctuary; one that has been tailored to reflect your style preferences in every sense. It’s easy to settle for standard features and colours, but these are never a permanent solution for those that own their own properties. Before long you may find yourself planning an interior decorating project to reinvigorate the look and feel of your house.
Decorating the inside of a home isn’t as simple as many people consider – if you fail to hit all of the right spots you could soon find the contrast in colours, layout and general atmosphere to put you in an even worse position than you were in originally. Fortunately that’s where the services of a colour consultant step into the fray – so much so that they could spell the difference between a stylish, well designed living area, or one that emanates confusion and poor design knowledge.
Getting Your Decoration Right
With so many unique elements to consider, it’s no wonder why home owners are confused when it comes to enhancing the look of their properties. From the furniture and fittings, all the way to colour schemes and layouts – when a guest walks into your home, you will undoubtedly want them to feel as comfortable and relaxed as you do on a daily basis.
The first thing to consider is the type of room that you’re planning on decorating. The colours that you use will play a major role in the look and feel of the functionality of your room, and so even a single conflicting hue can affect the atmosphere. With so many tones to choose from, it’s important to stick to a tried and tested routine – and one that we specialise in.
You’ll want to first introduce a primary colour. This tone will be used the most and so it shouldn’t be overwhelming on the eyes. You might find that soft pastel shades better suit the intended atmosphere of your home – but it’s always a good idea to obtain the advice of an expert to ensure that the hue is the right one for you.
With this colour selected, the next thing to do is to consider a complementary tone. One of the biggest mistakes that budding designers make is to introduce two conflicting hues that end up doing more harm than good. Instead, take a look at how your primary choice compares when paired with other tones.
With these shades selected, you’ll want to keep your final tone (if you decide on one) as complementary as possible. Browns, peaches and other neutral shades are ideal as they can be tied into furnishings and fittings, too. The most important rule is to ensure that your selected tones emanate your preferred style.
Bright reds are bold and energetic, whereas soft greens can promote health, relaxation and emotional well-being. Before deciding, why not consider hiring a consultant? They’ll be able to develop the most effective colour schemes for you and your family to enjoy without any concern about achieving the ideal formula.
