Matching Colors With Walls And Furniture

Have you bought furniture to furnish a room to realize it was the wrong color? Did you buy that rustic furniture at a department store, but discovered it was not suitable for the room? Did you waste time painting for the wrong color coordination?

To some, mixing colors is inventive. To others, it is nothing but splashes of paint. The same goes with furniture. How the colors look palatable depends on the room and what colors you choose. You want to either match your furniture color with your wall color. Or you could even provide contrasting colors. It’s good to experiment which colors work well together. One way is not to have entire surfaces as a whole to match, but parts of them match.

Unless your walls need a good paint job, it’s usually easier to choose your furniture color than for the pain. Otherwise it would be ridiculous to keep painting your walls over several times just to decide on the right furniture (Yes, there are people who do that!).

Focus on the color that dominates the room as the color scheme, and use that color for matching or contrast. Once you identify your color scheme, you can go shopping for your furniture or move furniture from other rooms to test it all out. Colors don’t have to be exact, as that could be difficult to find duplicate colors to both walls and furniture. Slightly different colors are fine as long as they are not too distinguished.

How you perceive the colors is your choice. What you do is figure out the colors deemed to catch anyone’s eye and be picked up in a nearby location in the room. It could be the bookshelf or couch fabric with the wall, or the fireplace hearth with the set of dining chairs close by. This is also helpful for colors in a combination room.

Your color match is not limited between walls and furniture. For a little more imagination, you may even use the floor colors to coordinate with the walls and furniture. In fact floor finishing can add to the color scheme, be it wood, tiles, or carpet. See how they contribute to the color scheme with adjacent walls and the furniture which sit upon them.

All it takes is careful planning and rearranging of furniture with the colors belonging to the fixed environment and you’ll soon have an attractive and colorful sight!{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5 and 6}.
