Choosing a paint color is daunting enough but narrowing down the exact shade you want is even more difficult. A good color scheme, such as the one’s found at Capitol View, begins with a purpose. Some people paint their walls to evoke a certain emotion upon entering the room, while others paint to make an otherwise smaller room feel larger. If you can paint your apartment as you choose, the choices are endless. The decision is ultimately yours to make, but some colors work better than others. Whatever your reason for painting, here are some of the best paint colors for luxury apartments.
For most people, their bedroom is a place of relaxation and calm. Cooler colors can be associated with those feelings, so paint your bedroom a shade of blue, blue-green, or gray. They can also make your space feel larger. Not only do they add to the calming feature of the bedroom, but these colors have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. If blues aren’t your style, a light purple such as lavender can also create a calming effect.
The living room is often the room with the most décor and art displayed. Keeping your living room a neutral color such as beige or light gray will allow your art and other decorations to stand out. A color that is too bright or bold will take away from them. You can add a pop of color without changing the walls by painting shelves or staining tables.
Entryway or Hallway
If you have a small entryway or hallway available, feel free to paint it a bold color that matches your current scheme. When used in a small space, bold colors can add a non-traditional touch of color without overwhelming the room. A deep purple would be perfect.
Since the kitchen is where we often sit for coffee and meals, a warm, bright color is best. Shades of yellow are ideal in the kitchen to add a welcoming touch. You can use a more golden yellow if traditional yellows are too bright for your taste.
If you have a dining area you want to paint a different color, warm colors such as pinks offer an inviting feel for dinner guests.
If you wish to ensure a clean look, white is the go-to for bathrooms. Choose a shade that matches your bathroom floor and other accents. Lighter colors also work well in small spaces or rooms without windows, as they reflect incoming light. A rosy pink can add a touch of warmth to your bathroom, while mint green walls can create a calming atmosphere.
In a room with a lot of large furniture, the space can seem much smaller than it is. By pairing light furniture with dark walls, such as blues and dark grays, you can create the illusion of a larger room. This is especially useful in smaller homes and apartments.
No matter your style, the perfect color palette for painting is easily obtained by following a few simple guidelines. Off the wall, bright colors can take away from a room while neutral colors allow for art and décor to stand out. Pinks and yellows offer a feeling of warmth and welcome while cool colors such as gray and blues give a more relaxed feeling. Pair colors that match your vision and soon you will transform your luxury apartment walls.
