When choosing which colours to paint each room in the home, it’s important to think about how the colours you choose can influence the environment. Colours are known for their emotional qualities, with certain shades evoking different feelings and emotions. If you’re looking for the best colours to decorate your home with, take a look at some of these perfect colour palettes for each room.
In the living room
Since the living room is a place that you should feel relaxed, it’s a good idea to choose colours that evoke these kinds of feelings and emotions. Avoid any harsh and garish colours like red, as these could make you feel too overstimulated which is the last thing you want after a long, hard day. One of the biggest trends for the living room is minimalism, which focuses on simple colours and details. The property industry is one industry that favours minimalism over other types of decor, recognising the versatility of this style. RW Invest, a UK property investment company, tend to choose these types of shades for their rental properties as a way to attract a wider range of buyers and tenants.
This trend is perfect for the living room as it creates a calm environment, making a room appear more spacious, bright, and open. To achieve this look, opt for neutral colour palettes with shades of white, beige, and grey. Other great colours to add to this colour palette include lavender, sky blue, and green — all of which complement the more minimal decor and add to this relaxed feel.
In the bedroom
Much like the living room, the bedroom should contain colours that help us unwind and relax at the end of each day. Create a colour scheme consisting of relaxing shades like blue, lilac, white, and green. One example of a beautiful colour palette that works brilliantly in the bedroom is forest green and earthy brown. This colour combination helps inspire a natural feel, especially when paired with some indoor plants, tying into 2019’s big ‘biophilia’ trend.
If you prefer a softer and lighter look, consider a colour palette of baby blue, sage green, and cream white which is sure to give your bedroom a cosy quality.
In the kitchen
For the kitchen, seek out colour combinations that energise and excite. The kitchen is one of the first places we see each morning when we make our morning coffee and prepare breakfast, while also being the place we create our evening meals.
Colours that are known for their energising qualities include red, orange, and yellow. If you’re interested in using either of these in your kitchen, consider colour palettes that will work well with these shades. An example colour palette for yellow, for instance, could see this shade combined with grey and black hues. On the other hand, if you prefer a more bright and bold look, consider colour- blocking the kitchen with orange and teal shades.
In the bathroom
The bathroom is a space that can work with a number of colours. While we use the bathroom as a place to wake up and start the day, we also use it to unwind with a nice hot bath, so it’s important to find a colour scheme which works both ways.
If you’re feeling bold, consider using pink in the bathroom. Light pink is such a versatile colour and looks amazing paired with so many other shades. Perfect colour schemes for the bathroom include pink with navy, charcoal, or jade green.
