Choosing the right style of blinds for your home from Image Blinds is an important choice as the need to match your needs, your budget and décor. Another facet of choosing blinds that need to match the décor is the colour. However, choosing the right colour is important for reasons beyond it matching the cushions on your lounge.
You may or may not know that colours can affect our moods. You may have even experienced it at some stage in your life. Sometimes you may see someone wearing clothing that has affected you in some way because of the colour or walked into a room that did or didn’t feel welcoming and right.
These feelings about rooms or clothing would largely be affected by what colour is present. So when choosing the blinds for your home you, of course, will be keeping preference in mind, but keep reading about what some colours can do whilst keeping that in mind too.
Black and dark colours are great for blocking out light but you need to be careful about the environment they are in and if they match the décor well. A black and white themed room with splashes of colour can look very classy and modern.
Black can lend a very formal feel to a room but on the downside dark colours can sometimes feel oppressive. Often if a room is too dark it can feel depressing but this can be combatted by keeping blinds open to let more light in.
Tones of green look very nice in some rooms, particularly in bathrooms. Green is often a colour associated with the environment, trees, grass and even the ocean. For this reason green hues can lend a relaxed, fresh and happy feel to a room.
The term ‘got the blues’ is not necessarily the case with the colour blue. Blue tones, like greens, have a very calming feel to them. Blue tends to be associated with the sky, and who doesn’t enjoy lying down staring up at a beautiful blue sky?
Like black, any kind of red tone needs to be carefully placed. Red can be associated with anger and stress but with the correct mix in the right room red can bring a passionate or warm feel.
