You've finished the bare bones of your renovation, and now it's time to begin thinking about the design aspect. Yet, with so many different colours and trends, it can be tough to know where to begin.
Painting is the perfect place to start. As a cost-effective design solution, it can shape the style of your house while boosting its market value. Take a look at these tips and current trends for finding your perfect colour.
1. Match your decor
If you have existing decor, then consider matching your room's colour scheme to it. A sofa is far more expensive to replace than a fresh lick of paint, so think ahead into the longevity of your interior design.
Your walls should be the background to your room's decor and accessories, accenting their best qualities. Take a look at different samples and colour combinations before you commit to painting the whole wall; while painting is a cheap interior design tool, it can also be time-consuming. Consider whether you want your walls to match or complement your decor, and consider using technology to help you out. There are a lot of great apps that can help with this, including the Dulux colour app that can show you how your room will look painted specific colours.
2. Current trends
Trends may come and go, but they can be a great way to get some inspiration. They can help you achieve a contemporary look and help you think ahead to your property's sale value. The current trends may vary according to where you are.
A recent poll determined the most popular paint shades in each state.
In Queensland, cool greys and light blues are on-trend right now. They create a calming and relaxed atmosphere, evoking tranquillity. Meanwhile, in New South Wales, the current favourites are neutral beiges and creams, offering a timeless look and enhancing natural light sources. For Victoria, greens and deep blues convey a sense of nature to provide a rich and deep interior.
3. Break it up
When you're creating your property's unique interior design, it's important to keep light at the forefront of your mind. Deep shades can give a bold look to your walls, but too many of them can make your rooms look dark and gloomy. Break it up by using feature walls and trims to offer contrast and keep it easy on the eyes.
Paint isn't permanent, so don't be afraid to experiment a little. With all of this in mind, you'll create a stunning property in no time.
