Decide on your mood
It’s important to decide what kind of mood you’re after. Are you looking to make a statement or are you after a more minimalistic style? Should there be a different mood in each room, or do you want to create a running theme throughout the house? Think of what kind of mood you want to achieve and base your colour scheme on this. We recommend creating a mood board.
Tonal, harmonious, or complementary?
Now that you’ve chosen your mood, it’s time to decide what kind of colour scheme you want to go for:
- Tonal: Many homeowners opt for varying colour tones when decorating their space. Take a look at your mood board and see if there’s a certain colour theme going on. A tonal colour scheme involves using different variations of one colour or using varying colours with the same depth of tone.
- Harmonious: A harmonious colour scheme uses colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel. With this scheme, you’ll achieve a balanced look that’s very easy to work with. This colour scheme is associated with a more minimalistic style.
- Complementary: A complementary colour scheme involves choosing colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel to achieve a more striking effect. This will surely add the wow factor to your home. Go for this scheme if you’re feeling daring!
Find your floor
Before you get started with decorating, you need to ensure that you pick the right floor to complement your chosen scheme. Of course, there’s a wide range of possibilities when it comes to flooring. Solid wood, engineered wood, parquet, laminate and vinyl are among some of the most popular flooring choices out there. We’d recommend choosing a neutral-coloured floor for more flexibility. If you do decide to redecorate in the future, neutral colours are easier to work with. Wooden floors are a great option as they are extremely versatile and will complement any kind of interior. Or you could try out a vinyl or laminate floor that can be easily replaced when needed.
