How to enhance your home with colour

Consider colour psychology

Did you know that the colour you choose for a room or area could influence how you feel in that space? For example, bright red is known to make people feel more anxious or annoyed, or even hungry, which is exactly why it’s a colour frequently used by food companies. So, whether you’re choosing the colour of your new carpet or about to buy a pot of paint, it might be worth having a quick look at how the colour you choose could influence your mood.

Use complementary colours

When decorating any space it’s important that you consider whether the colours that you are will complement one another. We would recommend first choosing the primary colour for a space and then choosing complementary secondary colours. Using colours that work in harmony is an effective way of ensuring that an entire space flows.

Lighting matters

Whenever you are decorating a room within your home it’s important that you consider lighting. How much natural lighting is there? Is the space dark? If the room you are decorating is quite compact and doesn’t benefit from much natural daylight, it may be best to avoid dark colour flooring, as it could make the space feel smaller.
