How to Successfully Add Color to your Lakewood Ranch Home
There are a lot of people out there who are afraid of bright colors. When it comes to adding color to their homes, they avoid it like that plague. Thankfully, colors do not have to be that scary. There are several different rules and tips that you can follow to successfully add color to your Lakewood Ranch home. If you follow these rules completely when selecting your colors, your Lakewood Ranch interior paint color job will be something you are proud to show off.
Consider Your Home’s Features
The features inside your home are already beautiful, but a coat of paint on the walls next to them can noticeably enhance them. To help you decide what type of color you want to add to your room, pick a feature and match a color to that feature. For example, if you have wooden countertops will a red hue to them, compliment this with a lighter red or soft yellow. Complimenting this feature will highlight it and bring the room together.
Create a Focal Point
When you are trying to find the perfect color for your room, it can help to pick a focal point. Similar to your home’s features, your focal point needs to be highlight. A focal point can be a fireplace, an arched window treatment, crown molding or something else you want to highlight.
If you do not have a particular eye catching item in your room, you can create one. Painting a particular wall in your room a different color from the rest will create a focal wall. This wall can be the highlight of you room, and you can use this color throughout the rest of your interior décor to really tie the room in together.
Consider Color Flow
Having two different rooms painted two different colors right next together won’t always work. If a room is side by side another room with an open door separating them, these colors need to complement each other. Not saying that the colors need to be the same or even the same shade, they just need to be in the same color pallet. Otherwise, the results could be disastrous.
Emphasize and Minimize
We have already talked about highlighting features in your home with color, but color can also emphasize certain features and minimize others. A long narrow room can be made to look wider if your use slightly darker tints on the shorter walls and light tints on the longer walls.
A room can be made to look bigger by adding a lighter color to the ceiling and a darker tint to the walls. Color can be a great way to improve some architectural feature that you do not like about your house.
