Flower print wall paper, Canary yellow and Rose Red, may be your ideal wall color/covering, but it can scare away a buyer. Wallpaper, is making a comeback as an incredible alternative to paint. There are excellent textures like bamboo that can enhance a space. But dated wallpaper, can not only make a space feel drab, but also convey to a buyer that they have a lot of work to do to get the home â€œto their tasteâ€. Loud and dark colors can be just as disinheriting when presenting a room. Always understand what color can convey.
Color stimulates our senses and even changes our moods. Outgoing people feel happy with bold paint colors, while more shy people prefer the more passive, or subdued colors. By using a specific color combination in a color scheme, you can create a room that is welcoming and comfortable.
Try not to use more than two main colors in a room, a main color and a trim color, or one color for three walls and another for an accent wall. One of the best ways to choose room paint colors that work together is to use a color palette available from your local paint store. Here's a general rule...the walls define the space of a room while colors define the mood you would like to present.
Colors could be put into three main groups:
- colors that can provide harmony and balance
- colors that can uplift
- colors that can relax
For instance, light blue is tranquil, purple stands for power or royalty, while green is for nature. By the same token grays and blacks are subdued colors while yellow brings out happiness. Do we even need to say that red is the color of romance, per stylish room ideas.
But what if you have white walls and you donâ€™t want to invest in painting walls that will just be changed by the buyer. You can add color through art work and dÃ©cor.
Here is a childâ€™s room that feels pretty drab and has no pizzazz!
We chose fuchsia as the dominating color and set out to add more excitement by building around this color. We added color thorough custom art. If youâ€™re not an artist thatâ€™s ok. First start with paint canvases. You can buy them for $5 to $20 from big lots. Choose a color and take a swash or anything that is the size of a quarter and have home depot or Lowes mix paint to match the color (the smallest that is available). Then Take that paint and paint the entire canvas that color, groups of threeâ€™s are very pleasing to the eye. We chose an oil paint and painted lines and balloons. But you can leave your canvas blank with just the color, or add circles or lines to evoke an artistic appeal.
Then coordinate with decor that includes the color in your color scheme.
Now you have added color to the wall without committing to color on the walls.
