Things to consider for each unique interior
All rooms vary in shape and size plus everyone’s tastes vary and therefore there is no universal formula for a successful colour scheme. However, a simple examination to identify any problems will usually lead to a most effective solution.
- Check to see if the ceiling is out of keeping with the size of the room. Is it too high or too low?
Reducing the contrast between the wall and ceiling colour will help give the impression of a higher ceiling.
- Are the doors symmetrically positioned? Are they better treated as a feature or blended in?
Use accent colours to pick out features or the same colour as the wall to create a seamless effect.
- What size are the windows? Are they small, large, too high, too low or in strange positions? Which way do they face?
Position your samples in different parts of the room for more accurate colour representation.
- What type of light does the room receive? Is the light constant throughout the day?
Again, view your samples at different times of the day for accurate colour representation.
- Is it to be used by adults or children?
This will influence the colours, but also whether any special effect paints are suitable – chalkboard paints, whiteboard paints, magnetic paints, glitters and more are available and can create exciting environments for children.
