With color comes the combining alternative colors. The need to mix and match. The ability to exactly pull it off may be questionable based on ones choices. Color adorns each and every nook and crook of any house and any part. Whether it is a simple white on the dining room ceiling or a splash of burgundy in the halls. It could either look like a fancy vintage themed bathroom or it could simply end up looking like a garbage dump! It all depends on how you can make it work. Think you don’t have enough courage or ideas to do so, well here’s a couple tips;
The Ultimate Guide- Color Wheel
The color wheel is the best guide for anyone who has the worst of combining abilities. Use it as your guide to decide the alternating colors or shades for whichever color you pick. Or you could pick one color and try the ombre effect to design the rest of the bathroom. Another alternative would be to choose from any patterned mat fabric or whatever bathroom accessories you intend to use and make it your guide to help design the rest of the room. Then go crazy with mixing and matching!
Pick the Top 3From among the range of colors you have chosen, choose the top 3. Simple it down to a neutral color, a rich color and one that is an accent. This way you would be following the rule of 3 that makes any surface glow with a splendid finishing touch. Have the proportions for these color broken down as well. It could be a 70 percent of the lightest color, a 30 percent of the next lighter color and 10 percent of a rich and bold color. This way you’d be able to work on those walls in no time!
Another way to go about with the rule of the thirds would be to have two neutrals with one bold. This way the neutrals emit a serene and calm vibe while the bold color makes it more interesting. Neutral colors like grey and white would be an excellent combination with a rich and polished black. You could use patterned tiles, polished bold colored shower chairs for elderly and may be even marble counter tops too to design the rest of the room.
Making It More InterestingAnother way to add color to your walls would be to go for bright and energetic colors. Combining a bright green with a navy blue along with a touch of white or an orange and bright blue with an occasional white furnishing, are some suggestions. Although it is advised to not use dark colors to adorn rooms, it has become more of a myth over the years since the ability to brighten things with more neutral yet strong colors exists. So don’t be afraid of trying to use a dark color to design the walls or the room because if you combine it with neutrals they simply become an amazing work of art that anyone can pull off.
Choose the best colors and have fun designing your bathroom to make it look exactly the way you want!
