Have you visited a friend or family and you fell in love with the color coordination of their home? They sure took their time deciding how their home will look. Picking out the color compatibility plays an important role on how homely your home will be. From how the wall paints matches the couch to the shelves to the rug/tiles. Whether you use the help of an interior designer or not, these factors need to be considered by you, the home owner.
- What’s your budget?
Your budget is the first thing to consider.
There are some colors that are not readily available for some home interiors and will have to be custom made which might be expensive. Do you want to go all out or you have a specific price range you want to stick to.
- Know your colors
Primary colors are red, blue and yellow. They are fundamental colors and cannot be created.
Secondary colors are orange, green and purple. These colors are formed when equal parts of 2 primary colors are combined.
Tertiary colors are a mixture, in varying parts of secondary and primary colors to create different color shades
- Do you have a favorite color?
Can your favorite color be the major color of your apartment or you want bits of it incorporated in your home.
Do you want your home to be same/different shades of your favorite color or you want different shades of it to be incorporated into it, let’s say having white walls and 3 different shades of green throw pillows on a gray couch.
- What do you want your apartment to portray?
Elegance or minimalism?
Colorful or neutral toned?
Other questions to ask yourself
- Will I get the color in the house interiors I want or I will have to get it custom made?
- Will I be satisfied with my choice after the set up?
- Will it feel as homely as I want?
- Will I need a retouch in few months time or years?
AFTER WEIGHING ALL THE NECESSARY DECISIONS, YOU CAN PROCEED TO SETTING UP THE COLOR SCHEME OF YOUR HOME TO YOUR TASTE. GOODLUCK!!!
