How to Choose the Perfect Color Palette for Your Home
Your home is your sanctuary. It's a place where you make the rules and you can express yourself through your decor. Choosing the perfect color palette for your home might feel like a difficult task, considering your home is a reflection of you. With endless options and combinations, knowing where to begin can be challenging. At Zerorez®, we believe that the right color scheme can transform your living space and give you a creative outlet. Here are our tips to help you choose the perfect color scheme for your home:
1. Start with inspiration:
Look for inspiration in magazines and online to find images and colors that speak to your unique style. Saving the images or creating a mood board can help you see what colors you gravitate toward naturally, and can give you the vision you need to take the next step in redecorating.
2. Consider the mood:
Think about the purpose each room serves and how you want to feel when you walk into each room. Warm colors like reds, oranges, and yellows create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere, while cool colors like blues, greens, and purples create a calming and relaxing ambiance.
3. Think about natural light:
Open up the windows and let the light shine through. Before choosing a color palette, you want to consider the amount of natural light each room gets. For rooms that don't get much natural light, consider lighter colors to make the space feel larger, and for big and bright rooms, you can play with adding darker accents.
4. Choose a dominant color:
Select a primary focus for each room, and then use other colors as accents. This creates a cohesive look and helps tie everything together. Limit your number of colors to around three shades to keep from creating an overwhelming space.
5. Use the color wheel:
Use the color wheel to help you choose complementary colors that work well together. Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel, such as blue and orange, create a striking contrast and can add visual interest to a room.
6. Consider your furniture and decor:
Look at the colors of your current furniture and decor and choose a color palette that compliments them. If you have neutral furniture, you can add pops of color with accent pieces like throw pillows, curtains, and artwork.
7. Test your colors:
Before committing to a color scheme, try out your colors in the room to see how they look in different lighting. Buy small paint samples or use online color visualizers to get a better idea of how the colors will look in your home.
