Matching Wall Colours With Furniture

Interior Painting Services That Complement Your Home

 

It’s amazing how much of an impact a fresh coat of paint can have on a room’s overall look and feel. While hiring an interior painting service is an easy way to revamp your home, choosing the perfect shade to use can be a bit harder.

 

There’s a lot you’ll want to consider during the process, such as lighting, room size, location, use, and (most importantly) furniture. If the walls of a room don’t complement the furniture, it can make the space appear hectic, messy, and inharmonious, which won’t do much in the way of enhancing your home.

 

Next time you’re repainting, make sure the colour you choose complements your furniture by following these general guidelines:

 

Choose Colours That Work Together

 

To start, you’ll need to take stock of what pieces and fabrics are currently in the space. While it’s certainly not imperative that the colours match, they should definitely complement each other in one way or another. To find colours that go with your furniture and upholstery, try using an online colour wheel or calculator.

 

Think About Proportions

 

Another factor to consider is the size of the room and how much of it each colour will cover. If you’re getting interior painting services to repaint a whole room with the same colour, its contrast to your furniture might have to be more subdued than it would be if you were only painting one of the walls.

 

Consider The Tone

 

Generally speaking, dark hues will make a space more grounded and intimate while light colours add depth and brightness. As such, a good rule of thumb is to combine both dark and light colours in a room to create balance. If your furniture is already very dark, you might want to consider asking if your interior painting services can use a brighter paint colour.

Consider The Focal Point

 

Every room has a focal point, whether it’s the paint, the furniture, the décor, or an architectural feature. If the focal point of the room is not on the walls, make sure the colour you choose adds to and doesn’t take away from this feature.

Hiring interior painting services to switch up the colours of your walls can give new life to your home. When repainting, be sure to take into consideration all aspects of the room so your re-do doesn’t become a re-don’t.
