Let’s look at several options for the coloristic design of a living room that can be useful to many of you during your next renovation.
Bright walls, light ceiling, dark floor
A room that uses a contrasting color scheme always looks stylish and catchy. In addition, with the help of a combination of frankly light shades with rich dark tones, you can coolly correct flaws or emphasize the advantages of a room.
Light ceiling, darker walls, dark floor
Living room, bedroom, and any other room that uses different shades of the same color scheme look harmonious and very traditional. If you are a fan of a measured lifestyle and you like the classics more than other styles, you can choose, for example, dark chocolate for the floor, cocoa for the walls, and cream for the ceiling.
Stretching from a dark tone to a light tone brings harmony and peace. This combination is designed to balance and correctly distribute the load on all horizontal and vertical planes. To this, it should be added that such a combination of wall, floor, and ceiling colors is perfect for rooms of any type.
The selected range can be supplemented with white or dark brown and black colors on skirting boards, doors, platbands, and cornices, depending on the task at hand. Colors and shades for furniture and accessories are chosen at your discretion but based on the thermal saturation of the walls, floor, and ceiling.
Light ceiling, light walls, dark floor
If you’ve chosen dark parquet or laminate for a small room with low ceilings, don’t be afraid that the color of the floor will steal precious centimeters of height. We recommend that you remedy the situation simply by using only light transparent shades for all walls and ceilings and curtains. Platbands, cornices, and skirting boards should also be applied in white or the most suitable light tone.
Dark ceiling, light walls, dark floor
Oddly enough, but this method of color scheme can be suitable for rooms with both high and low ceilings. The thing is that the uniform shade of the walls should be invariably light or dark, and, accordingly, the floor and ceiling of the opposite tone to the walls.
For rooms with high ceilings
In order to visually reduce the height of the room, choose dark colors for finishing the floor and ceiling. And remember that a cold shade has the ability to move away, and a warm one, on the contrary, to bring objects and surfaces closer.
For rooms with low ceilings
In order to use this method, you will need to construct two levels of the ceiling above your head. And the point is to paint the first (basic) level in a dark cold shade and make the second (suspended) level light. This technique will visually raise and deepen the low ceiling. Light walls will expand the space, and dark floors will balance the load on the top of the room.
