If you’re looking to give your home’s interior a fresh coat of paint, but you’re not sure what direction to go in, consider neutral wall colors. There are several neutral wall colors that you can choose. Neutral wall colors include shades of white, brown and gray. Shades of these neutral colors vary from the very light, cool shades to darker, warm shades. Lighter, cool shades help to brighten up a small room while darker, warm shades create a feeling of warmth and peacefulness. Other colors may be considered neutrals when muted significantly, such as a light olive color or a muted, grayish blue. One great thing about neutrals is that they give you more freedom when it comes to choosing and changing the overall look of your room.
For example, if you’ve chosen to go with ivory walls, you can create a bold feel in the room by adding black furniture and throwing in red accent pieces on end tables and light fixtures. In a few years, you may feel as though the look is outdated or you’d like to simply tone it down. You can replace the black furniture with lighter brown pieces and tone down the red by replacing them with gold accents instead. Without having to repaint your room, you’ve completely changed the look from bold and modern to warm and welcoming. After all, neutral wall colors can really create a blank canvas that work with virtually any look.
