One of the ways to change the visual aspect of your living room is to work with the painting of the walls. This technique is the most common, as it has a much lower cost and is more practical than changing the furniture or doing a complete renovation. The biggest doubt is: which color should be used on the wall and which one should be painted, keeping harmony with the existing decoration.
Before going out to paint your room, it is good to observe the environment by analyzing the shade of the furniture, the position of the walls, its extension and which point you want to highlight. Remember that each color conveys a feeling and creates a different look.
Light colors like yellow, beige, Fendi and gray always give the impression of spaciousness. One of the advantages of light tones is that they combine easily with other colors. Besides, they are great to compose with decorative objects of vibrant colors such as cushions, rugs, lamps, and curtains.
For a rectangular shaped living room, choose to paint the smaller wall with darker tones. This creates a shortening effect on the environment. Therefore, two shades of strong colors must be used with care, the vibrant colors end up leaving the environment uncomfortable. For square environments, the idea is to stretch – it is recommended to paint two opposite walls with darker shades.
The room should provide a feeling of coziness since it is there that we relax and get together with friends, visitors, and family. We have some tips for you, so follow our gallery with the most used colors and trends for this year:
