DIY New Homes Property How to Use Colour for Ceilings and To Create Focal Points? December 12, 2017/ By:Gladys Elkin/ No Comments Colour can do wonders and can really make or break a home. The effects that the right colours will have on your abode will be significant, which is why you as the owner should not just be aware of the colours and how to pick them but also about how they can be used right to create the optical appeal that you want. Here we will look at how you can use colours and applicants on your ceilings and throughout your home to create focal points that will help increase the appeal of your beautiful abode. For Ceilings If you have a really high ceiling and you want to make it look a little less steep go along with a colour that is a shade or two darker than the shade that you have applied on your walls. Similarly if you wish to increase the illusion of height you can use a lighter shade for the ceiling. If you can find a good professional in your area like a Brisbane painting company, ask them to try out a tied-in look with a bit of colour addition on the ceilings. If you want to play it safe make sure that the ceilings, the trimmings along the walls and the doors are pretty much the same shade that will create a very uniform and beautifully blended look that has a logical transition to it. How Can You Create Focal Points? The first thing to do when you are colouring up any area of your home is to create focal points. You can definitely do a lot with simply adding darker-coloured trimmings or even adding one dark-coloured wall to the room of your choice. Staying within the same colour scheme you can colour the walls dark and add lighter shades of trimmings to open up an area that would otherwise appear closed and dark. If you dare to do so, go half and half and create a stunning contrast of colour by adding and blending two different shades for the bottom and top halves of the room. If you have any stairways that are located in the middle of the living room, colouring them in a couple of darker shades as opposed to the walls will create a stunning focal point. Won’t All This Be Really Expensive? No not really, it won’t be. You really do not have to spend hundreds and thousands to make the inside of your home look good. If you know how to get creative and if you can dare to play around with the colours that are available, you can create a really expensive look for nothing much at all. For this sit and think about the kind of feel that you would expect from a room and try to pick the colours to focus on that sentiment. You can use reds and maroons for a romantic feel along with buttery yellows for a really cozy and homely vibe. You can use pinks, blues and greens for something that will feel really tranquil and use neutral shades if you want to maintain the feeling of sophisticated elegance.
