The first thing to consider in creating a home is the color. Building a home color palette will make your decorating choices much more accessible and can create a flow between rooms. Your choice of colors entirely depends on you. Experts recommend sticking to 3 to 5 colors for the color palette. 

A monochromatic color scheme is ideal for homeowners who want a modern and clean home. Harmonious color schemes, on the other hand, can give you a calm and relaxing feeling. Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel, and each color stands alone. 

So, whatever color palette you choose will reflect who you are and what atmosphere you want for your home. 

Ideal colors for the bedroom

Shades of blue are observed to be calming, and people in blue bedrooms get more sleep than any other color. This is why receptors in our eyes are sensitive to the color blue. The color can also lower the heart rate and blood pressure. Studies have also shown that blue bedrooms can make you happy when you wake up. 

Yellow is said to be the second-best color for the bedroom. It stimulates the nervous system and encourages relaxation, and promotes coziness. 

Green can also promote sleep and help wake up with a feeling of upbeat. Warm colors are also observed to create a relaxing atmosphere that can aid digestion.

The colors can help warm and relax body muscles so one may have a good night’s sleep. 

Give life to your bathrooms with colors

Warm colors such as orange and red represent energy and activity. Cool blues and greens, however, are soothing. 

Before settling on a color palette, think about what you want to feel in your bathroom. Is it energized or relaxed? The orange is energizing but does not overwhelm when paired with neutral tile. 

When red is paired with a clean white backdrop, the bathroom design mixes old and new to create something new. At the same time, classic neutrals such as beige and tan can create a casual, classic bathroom style that can be dressed up with colorful accessories. 

Kitchen colors you will love

When it comes to the kitchen, the standard colors seen are white, gray, blue, red, yellow, and green. Each can do something for the room by creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. 

Red is also considered a warm color and can stimulate the appetite. The color is said to be one of the good choices for the kitchen. The color is versatile and can be used on cabinets or walls.

On the other hand, white can energize the room and will wake you up the minute you step in. Color white on the countertops and backsplash can be fun, especially in brighter colors or designs.

Color combinations for the living room

Colors commonly seen in nature, such as sky blue and leaf green, have a calming effect on us. While red is stimulating, and yellow is said to be uplifting. Experts recommend decorating with one color on walls and furniture to use different shades of the same color together. For instance, a soft apple green sofa paired with emerald metal side tables can create an excellent effect. If you want a dramatic and modern look, paint the walls dark, midnight blue. Add furniture in rich shades, like a pink sofa. 

Pastel colors such as powder blue, pink, or lilac can be incorporated with striped or floral accessories to make the living room more attractive. Lighter shades of color can make the room feel as big as possible.
