Picking the correct color of the furniture can represent the moment of truth in your home decor. The right color furniture can transform your room into an asylum of harmony and beauty, and an inappropriate color can demolish the impact you had at the top of the priority list. Here are a few things that you should remember when you pick furniture for your home or office.
Consider choosing a color that will go well with your walls: on the off chance that you have energetic, brilliant walls, for instance, a restrained sepia or an exposed wood finish won’t work. Pick a color that will work out positively for your walls.
Consider lighting: it will not be the day all the time you are in the room. So consider the amount and kind of light you have installed in the room. A room may seem bright by day, but there may not be adequate lighting there in the evening hours. In such cases, it is better to go with light-colored furniture.
Consider natural light: a significant factor in choosing furniture color should be the kind and amount of natural light your room gets. You can offset sunny, airy rooms with darker colors, which might become oppressive in a less spacious, darker room. For those rooms, choose lighter, bright colors.
Consider your decor: Choose your pieces to complement each other and go with the general tone of your room. If your room is full of elaborate, heavy decoration, a light-colored piece of furniture will look totally out of place in it.
Consider the dimensions: look at the size of your room. Heavy, black, or dark wood finishes may work correctly in a larger space but will make smaller rooms feel cluttered and closed in. For such smaller areas, it is better to choose lighter colors and light pieces.
Consider your purpose: is the furniture for your bedroom? Is it for the kids’ room? Is it going to the garden? Your color choices may vary with the location in each case.
Consider the usage: although pretty, light colors set the tone for a light, airy room, if it sees heavy usage, the furniture will require higher maintenance. For high usage areas, consider choosing darker colors for low maintenance furniture.
Consider the furnishings: is the room hung with pink curtains and drapes? Are there large floral prints on the furnishings? Is the art or the photographs on the upholstery in geometric shapes? Your new furniture will have to fit in with these, in color and style.
Consider pre-existing furniture: when buying just one piece, try to coordinate it with the parts you already have in the room, rather than choosing something outlandish at random.
Consider your tastes: by far, the most crucial factor when choosing furniture for your room is your personal choice, your sense of style. Make sure you take the time to decide if you like what you buy, enough to live with it.
