Choosing The Perfect Color To Complement Each Room

Feb 18th 2015 at 1:51 AM

Picking the perfect color to complement a room can be a challenging decision, but with a little help from your color wheel, it will be easier than you previously thought. There are the basic principles of color such as the division between primary and secondary hues. After that, there are more rules regarding warm versus neutral or analogous versus complimentary. Whether you are repainting the entire room or just finishing up an accent wall, decide how you want your room to feel. Do you want it to be a tranquil and calming environment? Would you prefer a louder space for parties or social gatherings? A room’s décor affects the individuals experiencing it, so figuring out what you want is imperative to creating the perfect space.

First, there are warm, cool and neutral colors. Warm colors are going to be more vibrant such as reds, oranges and yellows. These tones can make you feel like the sun is sitting in the room with you. If you want to make a bold statement, these will be your go to hues. Cool colors tend to be more relaxing or subdued. Blues, greens and purples traditionally inspire harmonious and peaceful settings. Neutral colors are known for their flexibility. Blacks, whites and browns can be integrated into almost any color scheme without detracting from the intended atmosphere.

At the most basic, complimentary colors are directly opposite each other on the color wheel. For instance, blue and orange are complimentary. Your eyes naturally want to see orange after experiencing a lot of blue or vice versa. By nature, the compliments represent opposing ends of the spectrum so they play up each other’s intensity. The contrast yields an inherent energy in any room yet the combination still makes visual sense. Triadic or split complimentary schemes can give you more variety while still affording you great contrast. These schemes are based on three main colors and are a great way to incorporate both warm and cool colors into your room.

If you really have just one hue in mind but you want to add interest into your home, consider a monochromatic palette. You can choose your favorite base color and have accents in the form of shades on a spectrum. For instance, you can have blues ranging from almost black or purple to light sky blue. This will give you room to maneuver as you loose yourself in a world of color. If you still want the gradient effect but with more options, consider an analogous scheme. It’s easily described as a sunset, where every color is related and fades into the other.
