The secret to achieving a nice room and turning it into a great room is by using colour that complements the room and brings an added element to your lifestyle. There are some vivid changes you can make with just a little decorating knowledge.
Nearly every decorating programme or home make-over show talk about feature walls, nearly everyone is aware of this phenomenon. For instance, in the bedroom the feature wall could be behind the bed and the bedding incorporating on the key colours of the wall. It’s not just feature walls that can create impact in the bedroom; bold bedroom furniture can give an instant lift to tired decor.
You can make the whole room striking from the beginning. If your style is more classic than modern, a great colour would be olive green, although you de need to stay away from overly yellow greens as this can make the space look dull. The best way to find the perfect colour for your room, is to make use of paint samples, ensure you are generous with painting blocks of colours. You will need to view the colour at differing times of the day to ensure, it still looks good with varying light conditions. Once you’ve chosen your colour, make sure you paint your woodwork white and if you can get white with a hint of lime, it will only add to the striking effect of your room.
You can also create a spectacular room with the use of darker tones. An important aspect is not to drown the room in a solid dark colour but to counterbalance it with crisp white woodwork or white gloss wardrobes if in a bedroom, this all helps to break up the darkness.
A little know-how can create a wonderful home for you and your family, with outstanding contrasts and brave statement decor which will give the edge to any room, giving your home the wow factor.
