Choosing Colours For Each Room In Your House

Beginning to choose how you will decorate your home can seem like a daunting task, there are so many colours to choose from and each one will give your room a different style and feel. Here are some easy guidelines for each room in your house, but the most important thing to remember is that ultimately it is your home and you can choose whatever colour scheme you like! These guidelines just explain the different ways that you can make your room look and feel using different shades.



Your living room is a really central part of your home, and it is where you spend most of your time as well as where you entertain guests. Generally, earthy and neutral tones work really well in this space, keeping it light and airy. Beige, cream and grey are really popular choices too, and you could add pops of colour through decorations, cushions and curtains.



The kitchen is another room in the home that has many purposes: cooking, socialising, spending time with family – it is one of the most used rooms in a home. To make your kitchen seem inviting and bright, use colours like white, grey, yellow, and green which will really open the space up and make it seem larger. Alternatively, if you are a food lover and the kitchen is your workspace, try bright reds and oranges which stimulate your appetite and might make people love your cooking even more!

For the dining room, you might want to choose warmer tones of red and yellow to create a cosy room that is full of energy; this will give you a warm, inviting space to have dinner. If you want to make the room look bigger, however, then bright green, yellow and purple shades would be perfect.

The bedroom should be the most relaxing room in the house, which means you should pick soothing colours. Calming hues of lavender, soft green, and pale blue work really well, or you could select shades of cream and white. Choosing very bright colours for your bedroom can be overstimulating for some people which is why muted tones are often favoured, especially for guest bedrooms. For children’s rooms, soft colours are also perfect as they will have a soothing effect on your children and will help them calm down at bedtime.

Finally, we have the bathroom, which should be another relaxing space. Cooler tones of blue and green as well as the traditional cream, white and grey will help you create a perfect, zen atmosphere to relax and enjoy some time to yourself.
