Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect color scheme:

The first step in choosing colors for your home is to look at the brand in (manufacturer) color chart or color chart. Although this is not the best way to choose color. Because the rectangle print sample of the color on the card is neither the exact nor the one that will appear on the wall. They are very small and are positioned on the white background, which will give the wrong impression of brightness. Also, remember that the tiny rectangle or square of colors is immeasurably different from what is reflected or absorbed by an entire wall of that color. For example, blue will appear dark because it absorbs more light and yellow will appear much brighter because it reflects more light.

In response, the paint manufacturers have introduced small samples of the paints, which provide an opportunity to experiment with your chosen scheme on the wall yourself. The sample can be used along with your furniture, curtains and wall coverings to visualize a room as a whole.

02. Visual Trick Color Scheme:

Colors of various reflective qualities will make it possible to play visual tricks with the size and proportions of the room and its connecting areas. For example, paint a wall in cold blue; it will visually give appearance to extend the space. Conversely, paint one wall in and another three in white and that wall will appear to shorten the space. If your ceiling is too high, paint it a dark color, the ceiling will appear lower. The opposite effect is made by painting a ceiling white to enhance it.

You can make the wall appear taller by painting its skirting board the same color as the wall. When all the walls and ceilings are of the same light colors, the natural angles of the room will be much less noticeable. This will give a feeling of increased space.

If your rooms are connected by narrow corridors, as in many older homes, then bright colors will help you visually increase the width. A darker color at the end of a corridor will make it appear shorter.

03. Monochromatic scheme:

If you are thinking of doing monochromatic scheme then the color you choose must have a strong relationship with the fabrics, soft furniture and flooring. Neutral gray, soft beige, white and creams are often chosen for this. The term "monochromatic" is a misnomer, because patterns on flooring and soft furniture, wood and household items have their own color content.

When working on specific space, designers will place a pattern or pattern board, consisting of colors, materials, fabrics, wallpaper on a card to aid decision making. It's easy to collect one together by collecting sample from stores. Use the materials and colors that you are considering, never replace a breakdown of the magazine because this will not be accurate. The artificial light should ideally be the lighting system that you will use in the room. If it will be different, then find the cupboards for it.

When your board is complete, use it to compare lights and note the changes in color and its bright sunshine, dull, shady conditions under artificial light.

05. The great division:

The house is divided into so many areas and you may or may not have a preference for a color linking system that is, connecting all of the rooms on one floor together by using the same color for door frames and baseboards. You can also keep these natural departments and emphasize them by using different color schemes.

This way you can break up the color scheme for emphasis and also give continuity by repeating this style around your home.

Now many of the retailers can give you a 3D view in the photo for different color options. This will help you visualize and weigh up various options.
