Do wall paints really make a difference?
It’s a well known fact by now that colours can affect our mood. So after you decide your interior style and know the kind of look you want to go for, its time to decide the colours on your wall. It all depends on the kind of vibe you wish to create, the rooms and sometimes, the size can also dictate your choice.
Colours can stimulate the senses and have a strong effect on your mood. It’s best to know your disposition and the effects of the colour before you decide on one.
Read on to know how different wall paints can give your room a different feel and look.
If you’re all about mindfulness, and want your space to be calming and peaceful, then focus on blues and neutral colours. But it doesn’t have to be boring! You can choose a nice deep shade of clue for the room, and play with whites and creams around that. This combination works best for bedrooms and living rooms, as there’s usually more wall space to play around with in these rooms and you also spend the maximum amount of time here.
But if you’re looking to do your children’s room, then these somber colours are not the right choice. What you need is a playful, cheery palette. Think of bright colours like yellow, orange, red. They add a more youthful vibe and give the room a more energetic feel.
If not the kids room, then a yellow or green based palette is also a good option for your kitchen. There’s not a lot of use for walls, as they are mostly covered by cabinets, so a nice bright touch will make the kitchen feel livelier and more inviting.
You can choose different colours based on the mood you want to create. Now if you want a more romantic setting, in your bedroom for example. Warm tones of red, lilac and wine shades are perfect to create a sense of intimacy in the bedroom.
However, if you’d like a more eclectic feel in the room, then why not opt for bolder colours? A bright yellow or orange. Make it the dominant colour on one wall and paint the other walls with complementary colours.
Mixing and matching colours is also a good idea for more casual spots in your house. Reading corner, games area. Basically anything where you go to unwind, its important to have fresh colours to keep your mood lifted and convert the space in a place you would actually want to spend time at.
There are also colours available for those with a more somber mood with a hint of sophistication. Black and grey lend a mysterious, cool touch to any room, and what’s more, the colours are back in vogue. They go especially well with a minimalistic sense of design and are favoured colours for the study, or library. But too much of these colours will make the room just downright gloomy, so be careful about that while painting the room.
