One of the easiest and cheapest ways to change the decoration of a house is by changing the color of the walls.
Choosing color is one of the most critical decisions when decorating a home. To get the color right, consider the following factors.
1- The symbolism of colors
Colors have a significant effect on humans that we are not aware of. Use warm colors like red, yellow and orange and create atmospheres that will invite action, conversation and lift the mood.
If you use cool colors such as green and blue, you will create cool spaces that will encourage calm and relaxation.
And if you use neutral tones such as earth tones or gray, you will get very cozy and quiet environments.
2- The dimensions of the stay
The dark colors reduce the space because they convey the feeling that the walls are close and instead clear you will help area look more significant because they have the opposite effect, the walls recede.
3- The orientation of the room
The rooms to the north, are those that receive less light during the day, for that reason they paint them of warm and bright tones.
The south-facing ones, which receive light throughout the day, paint them in fresh colors and those oriented to the east and west, wash them with light colors to appease the orange tone of the light of the sunrise and the sunset.
To facilitate the task of choosing the color, there are virtual simulators to visualize how your house will look before painting. A good example is the Jotun Paint Color Advisor, which allows you to test an infinite number of color combinations. You can color the images of your own home to choose the best option. This is a free and straightforward tool, which also allows you to share the color proposals.
Equally free is the Jotun Color Match mobile application. It permits you to take a picture of the object of the color you want and identify the chosen color. The same use provides different combinations so you can choose the one that best suits the tone you have selected.
This type of tools reduces the risk of making mistakes when choosing the colors of space, since the result of the painting can be visualized before it is made.
