So, you've decided to give your home a bit of a face-lift with a change of colour. Now comes the difficult part - deciding on your new colour scheme. If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed by the huge number of colours available, here are 4 things to consider:
- Avoid white as it can seem impersonal and a bit clinical.
- Look at your furniture and decor; use these items to colour coordinate.
- Think about the purpose of the room. For example, family rooms can be vibrant, a bedroom should be calming and a kitchen bright and airy.
- Think about the size of the room. Darker colours are moodier and will shrink a space whereas light colours can really open up a space.
