Colors give a room personality and individuality. They can narrow spaces or make them look just bigger and lighter. Colors therefore have an important influence on the spatial experience. In addition to the spatial effect, color can also have an impact on mood and perceived temperature. For example, a room painted orange feels comfortable at 20 ° C, while a blue room at the same temperature can quickly appear cold.
When choosing colors, it is therefore important to rely on the available space and not just buy a fixed color palette in the store. You can also get such things done from Spanndecken Offenbach am Main.
Colors can also evoke emotions. Although blue and green are cool colors, they will nevertheless induce a feeling of calm and relaxation because we can associate them with landscape images such as the sea or a meadow.
Also take into account the function of the room. In the bedroom it is best to choose soothing and balanced shades such as green, brown or blue. In workspaces you can safely experiment with cheerful and inspiring colors such as red, orange or turquoise.
Finally, the perceived temperature of a color also influences the sense of space. A room that is completely painted in the same cool color gives peace and space.
BRIGHT AND DARK COLORS
Colors reflect the incident light. The brighter the color, the more reverberation there will be. For example, incident light best reflects off a bright white color. Black will then absorb the light, making the room appear smaller and more intimate.
If you have dark color tones in mind, but you still want to keep the feeling of space, you can also choose to paint an accent wall only. This way you create atmosphere in the room and still maintain the open feeling. Also take into account the function of the room. For a wall that you look at a lot, it is better to choose a dark, soothing color, because the wall seems to fade. In a space where there is more action, such as a kitchen or a children’s room, a bright wall can be perfect.
SPATIAL EFFECT OF COLOR
Colors can make a room look bigger, smaller, wider or narrower. Play with shades depending on the effect you want:
MAKING A SMALL ROOM LOOK BIGGER
Use light colors that reflect the light and give the ceiling a lighter shade that is barely visible to the naked eye. Satin paint can also have a magnifying effect because the light is better reflected.
MAKE A ROOM APPEAR HIGHER
Paint the ceiling a lighter color than the walls and avoid wallpaper or color accents with horizontal lines. If you have molures on the ceiling, paint them slightly darker than the ceiling. This makes the room seem 10 centimeters higher again. You can also get your ceilings designed from Spanndecken Kassel.
MAKE A ROOM APPEAR LOWER The reverse is true here: paint the ceiling in a warm or dark color. You get even more results by letting the color of your ceiling continue on the walls. Wide horizontal color accents can also make the room feel lower.
