The colour of the walls can make an impact on the entire atmosphere of your home. The shades you select could help enhance depth and space, and create a dynamic living space. The below tips should help you bring your walls to life in an easy and efficient way.
Intense colours effectively “close” the walls. So if you want to visually shorten a hallway or a room, paint the back wall in a more intense colour than the rest. However do not choose a very dark colour as you will achieve the opposite effect.
If you want to disguise items such as the radiators and baseboards, a good idea is to paint them the colour of the wall.
To add depth, paint one wall in a dark colour that is on trend. Colours like black, dark grey or chocolate brown work well. To avoid losing brightness paint the wall opposite the window in your chosen colour. Another idea is to paint different colours on the walls of adjoining rooms to enhance the visual separation between them. Always remember to harmonise the colours in each room.
To inject personality into a room, paint a wall with simple stripes in bright colours and in different thickness’s.
Emphasise architectural elements such as columns, beams, fireplaces by painting them in a contrasting colour. This will help you to break the uniformity of a room. The use of this decorative technique is particularly useful in large environments.
