Published May 24th, 2023 by Rose Building Contractors, Inc.

One of the most important parts of being a homeowner is choosing the right interior design for you. The living room is the space where you spend most of your time, especially if you work from home. Therefore, you must pick the right color palette that suits your taste.

Designing a property interior is more complex than you might think. There are multiple details you need to consider. Not to mention the resale value that property owners pay a lot of attention to. However, convenience for you and your family is the most critical aspect of designing. Aesthetic pleasure at home shapes our personality and affects our mood subconsciously. 

Creating a brand-new interior design without the help of a professional might be difficult. You might have the perfect design in mind but bringing everything together when remodeling without the correct color can be difficult. We can help you choose the right color for your living room walls by giving you several tips that are easy to follow. 

Find Inspiration

You can find inspiration anywhere. Whether you like to walk around the city visiting galleries or browse social media such as Instagram and Pinterest, you can find the style that you love. Taking a look at different visuals can help you choose the right color palette for your living room. 

You should try to look at rooms that are similar to your living room with structure and furniture. It’s best if you check how well the wall color goes with the colors of your furniture if you already own some. You can raise profits if you ever choose to resell your property by choosing a tasteful design.

Inspiration can help you move on to the next step.

Pick a Color Scheme

After you see what you like, pick out a color scheme for your living room. Choose the colors that go best with your furniture and flooring. You may overlook the importance of flooring when it comes to color palettes at home, but flooring and wallpaper need to go well together to create the best visual. 

Every color is important. If you want green walls, you can’t just choose green paint, there are many shades of the color that you could choose from, such as olive, castellan, and emerald. Choosing the correct palette is essential when designing your home. Once you have chosen the one that fits your taste, you won’t have to worry about repainting the walls for a very long time.

Match the Color to the Feeling

Designers pay the most attention to the psychology of color. Before a designer picks out a color palette, they think about the visual tone of voice. The tone of voice is the mood that your design creates. What is the audience like, and how will the visual be enjoyed? 

In this instance, you are the audience and the living room is where you will most likely invite friends and family to enjoy some time together. Therefore, you should think about the psychology of the color you pick out for the walls. For example, they say that pink is a color that calms the soul, red is a demanding and aggressive color, and yellow is positive and bright. 

Instead of just looking at the colors and choosing what looks the best, you should add learning the psychology of the colors you like as well. This doesn’t mean that you should go to libraries and do thorough research on the history of paint. You should simply look up what type of mood each color sets according to professionals.

Pay attention to the space

If you have narrowed down your choices, now it’s time to make sure that the color you choose fits the size and the space of your living room. The windows and light fixtures are also important when choosing a color. The lighting has a lot of effect on colors, it can make the shade look completely different. 

If you have big windows that bring a lot of light into the room, you should think about using lighter shades. Do your light fixtures have a cold tone or a warm tone? How much of the walls catch the light?

As for the space, some colors look better in cozy environments than in large rooms. A color can make your room seem bigger or smaller. Therefore, you should make sure that the color you choose fits the space in your home the best.

Final Thoughts

Many aspects factor in when you are making a decision. The most important thing is that your living room is comfortable and visually appealing to you. Therefore, consider every detail to improve your lifestyle and the energy in your new home
