Your home is a part of your life that’s uniquely yours. It’s where you’re able to retire to each day and feel completely relaxed and in your element. Each person’s home is going to look different based on who they are. How can you use paint in interesting ways to help build the style of home that you want?
Decide on a Theme
Your first job is to decide on a theme or unifying feature that will tie a room together. This can be done a several ways. You may want to give each room in your home a unique style and feel, or you might opt to have a feature that’s common across all rooms to unify the space. Colour is a great way to go about this. Regardless of how you decide to proceed, you’ll want to try and establish a good flow in your home. The design of each room should make logical sense as you travel between them; allow different styles to play off each other’s strengths. Taking some time to plan out how you want each room to feel can save you time and also give you a better idea of what you’re looking for.
Look For Inspiration
Running dry on ideas and wondering where to start? Looking to current trends in colour and design can be helpful! Check out Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 to get inspired, or take a browse through social media to look for ideas. However, be aware that the will of the internet changes on a whim, so take what you find on social media platforms with a grain of salt and search with a critical eye. Finally, taking a walk down the street and viewing some new show home can be a fun and productive way of spending an afternoon.
Choosing the perfect colour can be very difficult. You want to make sure that the colour will suit the design choice you’re looking for, but it can often be hard to make a bold choice. Don’t settle for blandness and don’t be afraid to push the boundaries! Avoiding blandness doesn’t mean you have to go for intense bright colours. Start with pleasant neutral colours and built on top of that. Accent walls and brighter hues can be used to great effect if used sparingly. Look to your existing furniture for ideas and find ways to bring the whole room together. Colour can have a major impact on not only your home’s value but your mood as well. Coming home each night to a beautiful and luxurious space is the perfect way to end your day.
