Paint colours for your home’s interior in Dublin

Deciding on the perfect colours for your home is an important task which requires serious consideration. This crucial part of interior painting and decorating can also be challenging. Choosing the correct colours will help lighten your home and uplift your mood as you enter. They can also influence the lighting of the room, making the sunlight bounce off the surfaces. When you pick the wrong colours, you might get the opposite results. It causes a negative impact and evokes feelings of sadness and depression. 

How do you match the paint colour palette to your home?

When selecting a colour, take note of its positive and negative effects. Each colour stimulates certain feelings and has specific effects on your mood and mental state. Lighter colours such as white, cream and yellow create a happy and cheerful vibe. They also let the light reflect in the surrounding spaces. 

To create a calm, serene and secure ambience in your Dublin home or office, blue is the best option. You will notice bank uniforms are usually blue because it helps offer a feeling of security. Be wary though, because using too much blue will also invoke feelings of sadness.

These are just examples of how colours can affect your mood. With the multitude of colours available, you can see that deciding on what to use can be a struggle.

      Frequently selected interior colour schemes

      When selecting colours for your Dublin home, you need to consider one basic thing. You must consider how to achieve the perfect blend of colours in the room. When it comes to colour matching schemes, there are three basic styles. The most common styles are discussed below:

      Complementary Colour Scheme

      If you want to create a rich, uplifting and exciting colour palette, then you should choose a complementary colour scheme. The usual colours selected for this scheme is the one with high contrast.

      Monochromatic Colour Scheme

      In this colour scheme, the same colours will be used but will differ in saturation. 

      Analogous Colour Scheme

      This colour scheme makes use of two or three similar colours that differ slightly from each other.

      For the exterior of the house, choosing the colour of the paint is easier because it only entails basic options compared to the interior. The colour of the exterior of a house in Temple Bar, for instance, should match its surroundings.

      With this, it will take less effort to choose the perfect colour.

      In the end, whatever your choice will be, Dublin Painting Pros are ready to provide you with quality service which starts with the application of a durable primer to ensure the best results and make you happy with the beauty of your home.
