Colors are sometimes referred to as cool, warm or neutral. Neutral colors are more specific. There are several advantages using neutral colors for your house. 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 In a few years, you may feel as though the look is outdated or you’d like to simply tone it down.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. Neutral walls create a blank canvas that work with virtually any look.
If you’re interested in choosing a few different colors for your room, neutral colors always work well together. For example, painting 3 out of 4 walls ivory and painting one a dark beige shade will help you to create an accent wall without having to spend hours comparing other shades trying to find ones that both match one another, as well as your furniture. By going with neutrals, you’ll have a complimentary palette right off the bat.
