Know Your Shades Of White
Whites come in an endless range of colors. There are pure, clean whites; these white tones offer no tinted hues and are preferred by designers who want to showcase art or furniture. Warm Whites contain yellow, rust, pink, or brown undertones while cool whites contain green, blue, or gray undertones. Warmer Whites should be used when there is less natural light and cooler Whites should be used when there is a lot of natural light because they will open up the space.
Create Flow In Open Floor Plan
Continuity is paramount on the ground floor, but color will also provide a sense of separation so it's easier to know what room you're in without having to think about it. You don't want your whole house looking like one big monotonous box. Using different colors can make all the difference when it comes to zoning off an open living space into smaller living zones - such as separating an eating area from a TV lounge with two contrasting tones or shades - because who really wants to spend their time looking at a bunch of dull neutral pieces?
Too many people think that introducing bright colors too often is unattractive, which might be true if they're doing it wrong! For example, use light and pastel shades sparingly but still keep them around so that they act as accents; this goes for both furniture and accent pieces such as lamps or vases full of flowers.
Change How Big Or Small A Space Feels
In general, white whites can make a space feel larger, while warmer color palettes can make a sense of closeness. On a more basic level, bigger spaces can handle more color than small rooms. Lighter colors can open up a small square footage space, while darker colors create the feeling that the areas are closer than they appear.
