    4. Consider natural lighting with colour choice

     

    Evaluate the orientation and floor plan to determine the level of natural lighting in your home to decide where you may like to use neutral or more bold and vibrant colours in the house. Pay attention to the impact of lighting. Color is a reflection of light, so the kind and amount of light in a room will have a significant impact on a color scheme. 

    Consider what parts of your homes allows more natural lighting and other spaces requiring artificial lighting to determine your colour choices. Change the value of a colour from space to space to define the areas to their natural lighting as long as the décor, styling and colours still fit within your overall colour scheme. 

    5. Plan your colour scheme room by room

     

    While you’ll want to ensure consistency within each space of your home, so it naturally blends together and the interior colour scheme does not appear fragmented, it’s best planning your colour scheme with the consideration of key furnishings and decor that you want in each space. Then base your paint colours on those elements. 

    Consider your paint colour around your kitchen finishings in an open plan living area. The kind of artwork or pictures you will be using. There may a space where that might make for a feature wall or wallpaper. Consider your bedding with floor coverings and wall colours in the bedrooms. Finally trends come and go so carefully consider the style of your main finishing items of your kitchen and bathrooms as wall colours are much less expensive to change with trends.
