When it comes to interior decoration a lot of people would think that it all boils down to picking the right furniture. Some would pay a lot of attention to the window dressing and other details. However, if you want your interior decoration efforts to really go well, you have to focus on picking the right wall color. In fact, on a square inch by a square inch basis, your choice of wall color has a more dramatic impact on the success of your interior decoration efforts than specific pieces of furniture or other details in the room. Why is this? Your wall color sets the right personality. It sets the right tone for a particular interior space. If you get this particular detail wrong, regardless of how well the other pieces in the room try to make the overall design work, things will still look a bit off. Things will still look awkward. If you want your room to look the best it is capable of looking, pick the right wall color. Keep the following factors in mind.
Check the color of the furniture pieces
You have to remember, every little piece that goes into a room does not stand on its own, it is always a part of a larger setting. Every little detail impacts all the other details. So if you want to pick the right wall color you have to look at the different colors of the furniture. They have to work together.
Different rooms should have different colors. After all, different rooms have different personalities and different uses. At the very least, different rooms have different people staying in them. This is why it is very important to always factor in the kind of room it is, who will be staying in the room, in regards to your wall color decisions. This is no small matter. If you are going to be decorating a kid’s room, your wall color options are different than if a senior citizen is going to be staying at the room. I hope this much is clear.
How important is mood or personality?
It might strike some people as a little bit surprising why this question is even asked. For many people, mood and personality is very important in terms of interior design. They automatically assume that if you are going to be designing different rooms then each has to have different moods or personalities. While this is true at a certain level, this applies more dramatically to some rooms than others. If you have a lot of rooms in your home and only four of the eight rooms will be occupied by family members, then it is probably a good idea to set a general or standard mood for the other four rooms. For the rooms that are being occupied by family members, each would have their own distinct personality, each would have to have their own distinct mood. Make your wall color choices accordingly.
Picking the right wall color is no small detail, you should not overlook this important part of your interior decoration efforts. If you mess this up, it can have a dramatic effect on the look, personality and feel of the rest of the room.
