The colours of the rooms in your home are a direct reflection of your personality. Although most of us may not spend much time thinking about room colour, it affects us every day. The colour of a room can affect our mood and thoughts.

Colour affects people in many ways, depending on age, gender, ethnicity and climate. Certain colours (or groups of colours) tend to get a similar reaction from most people; the variations come from the shades or tones used. That’s why it is so important to choose colours wisely when it comes to decorating.

You don’t have to be a slave to trends to have a beautiful home. Colour trends come and go. The people who inhabit the home make it beautiful by choosing colours that reflect their preferences and personalities. The trick is to match your colours in a pleasing combination. The choice of colour combinations is one of the most intimidating steps for beginners. Colour has the power to change the shape and size of the furniture, as well as the shape and size of the room itself.

Choosing colours is not difficult, if you learn the basics about the colour and its effects.

Let’s find out more about room colours and how they affect your mood.


Choose Wisely


Keep in mind that every colour has a psychological value. Think about how you feel certain colours; they can affect any emotion, from calm to rage.
To create peace and harmony in your home, choose your colours wisely; some colours in large quantities can have the opposite effect on you and your loved ones.

What mood do you want to create? What colours will help you achieve this mood?

If you need help to answer these questions, look at magazines, blogs, and websites for ideas. Also, let the flooring and furniture be your guide. Curtains, carpets, furniture and tiles come in a more limited range of colours, so choose those first and then decide on your paint colour.

Once you find something you like, limit the number of colours in a room to no more than three or four. Too many colours can make a room look cluttered. Paint is relatively inexpensive and transforms a room faster than anything else, so you can afford to experiment a little.
