Bright Ideas for a Colourful Home Renovation
Are you the kind of person who wants to go beyond basic beige and eggshell white when it comes to your home décor and home design? If you love colour, then it is something you’ll definitely want to consider in any home renovation? But how do you keep colour from becoming… well… too much? Is there a way to incorporate big bold colours into your home renovation without the fear that you will become tired of it in a few years (or months)?
At Superior Construction, we love bright and bold colours too – but like most things in life, we understand that properly applying colour is a skill. So here are a few things to consider when using colour in your home renovation.
- Consult with a designer.
This is one of the most important things you can do. Interior designers not only have an eye for colour but they understand how it will work in your home. You may love a particular shade on a paint chip but your designer can tell you how it will look on an entire wall or how various shadows and light in your home are going to affect that colour.
2.Choose taste over trends.
Colours go in and out of fashion all the time. Remember those bright fluorescent colours of the ‘80s? If a certain shade of blue, grey, orange or whatever is the flavour of the month, don’t simply choose it for that reason. Ask yourself if you really LIKE that colour. Since most people don’t renovation very often, you’ll want to select colours that you can enjoy years from now.
3.Take baby steps.
Maybe you love colour but you’re not quite ready to select a non-traditional hue for your hallway carpeting or your living room walls. If you love colour – but it still makes you kind of nervous – then take baby steps. Choose colourful accents that are inexpensive and easy to change such as throw pillows and vases. If you are a little braver perhaps a colourful sofa or sectional. Take small steps to start and before you know it you’ll be ready to make those larger colour commitments.
At Superior Construction, we employ interior designers who have an amazing eye for colour and who would be happy to discuss your home renovation ideas with you. If you are ready to add a little more colour to your home – and your life – give us a call today.
