Choosing Colours For Blinds: What Colours Are Right For Your Home?

Have you ever thought of making a statement with the blinds in your room? Well, you can! You can be as fun, crazy and creative with your blinds as you want. So, here are some tips for choosing colours for blinds in your home. Blinds come in a huge range of style, materials, colours and patterns. With a great variety out there it almost seems ridiculous to choose a blind that hides within your room.

You may wish to match your blinds to the paint colour in the room or keep it neutral so that it lasts through many different decor choices. However, if it’s pizzazz you’re looking for you may want to look at some creative patterns and colours.

Choosing Colours For Blinds: What’s In?

The rule for choosing colours for blinds is… there are no rules! You can go for whatever you want. Bright colours, bold patterns and textures are all within your options. Patterns add a modern statement however, you will need to ensure you do not overdo it too much with matching wallpaper or cushions. A little pattern is enough in a room. Chevron or bold black and white stripe with a little bit of colour is in right now. Choose the colours you want and stick to it. When you do choose colours for blinds in any room, sticking to a palate of about 3 colours is always best. If you ‘re not a fan of patterns, you can choose to go for a bold dramatic colour to make your blinds a feature in your room. This is a great choice if you are looking for a modern-looking interior. It may be plain but it will definitely look eclectic.

Choosing Colours For Blinds: Don’t Over Do It

Light colours and patterns matched with other light colours and patterns give a soothing, relaxed look. Dark colours and patterns matched with light is more dramatic and fun. Be sure to balance your space by choosing colours for blinds that complement and highlight each other. There is nothing wrong with mixing colour and texture, just be sure you don’t overdo it by having absolutely everything bold and patterned. It’s okay to have a little bit of colour, pattern and/or texture.

Creating Space Through Colour Choices

You can make a room look larger or smaller with the use of the right colours. By using light colours, such as white and cream, you soften the room and will make it feel bigger. If you add horizontal stripes to the room, it adds width while vertical stripes will make the room look higher. Consider the effect you want in your room before you choose the blinds colours and patterns. If you want a Meditteranean feel, you may wish to use blue and yellow but using red and ochre’s will make it more earthy and oriental.
