Studies show that certain colors can affect emotions differently. Before you call an interior painting contractor from Fox Painting Company for your Radnor property or another nearby area, use the following guide to assist you in picking the color that suits best.
Red ignites excitement and passion. It is even possible that it increases your blood pressure, speed respiration and heart rate. Use it to liven up the living room or dining room.
Orange also excites, adding energy and eagerness to complete tasks. It might not be best for rooms in your home where people want to relax in like living rooms or bedrooms. Orange would be great in an exercise room or a child’s playroom.
Yellow is a fine choice for bathrooms, kitchens and dining rooms where it invigorates and refreshes, much like the sun. But too much isn’t a good thing, causing tempers to flare.
Green makes you feel more relaxed and comfortable. It can help you loosen up, perfect to use in a living room or family room. It is also said this stress-relieving shade can even aid with fertility, so perhaps the bedroom is a good place for it as well.
Blue also makes people feel at ease, which is ideal for bathrooms and bedrooms. But, a pastel blue might add an uncomfortable chill to the room; so be sure to counterbalance it with warm shades of fabrics and furnishings if necessary. Lighter blues evoke calmness.
Purple is classy. It demonstrates sophistication and gives off a luxurious vibe while inspiring creativity. Normally applied as an accent or secondary color, a darker tone gives you flexibility in regards to adding to the scheme. Lighter shades of purple, such as lavender and lilac, can help people unwind without the chilliness associated with blue.
Neutrals such as brown, black, gray and white fluctuate as far as what’s “in,” but they remain flexible. You can add a neutral color to liven up the mood or turn it down by removing it. Black works better in smaller amounts, grounding the color scheme and adding complexity.
Using this guideline, create the perfect balance of moods and emotions for your home. If you need a professional painter near Newtown Square, contact us at Fox Painting Company and ask about our paint consultation services today.
