The Benefits of Neutral Colors

The Benefits of Neutral Colors

Neutral colors are always a safe bet when it comes to room design!

One of the most exciting, yet challenging questions of home remodeling projects is the topic of paint selection. This is because the space, location, and resale value all come into play in during the decision-making process. You might have a vibrant personality and be, therefore tempted to relay that part of yourself on your walls. Consider the benefits of taking a toned-down approach and unlocking the many possibilities of using neutral colors.

Influence the Atmosphere

Paint offers the opportunity to create a particular atmosphere in a room. While bright colors may help you express a more energetic vibe, neutral tones can provide you with a calming effect. The smoothness of neutral paint could translate into boring for some people. However, for others, it can but may provide a steady, quiet, and soothing atmosphere. It also makes a space feel more open and welcoming. On top of that, neutral paint colors articulate the feeling of sophistication and modern style. It shows that you can be refined and make subtle choices that demonstrate your attention to detail.     

The Perfect Base

Neutral paint supplies the perfect base for a homeowner.  The neutral colors essentially provides a homeowner with a blank canvas in terms of home design. They play the background very well and therefore give you the opportunity to bring in brighter colors with the use of an accent wall, furniture, and other accessories. Neutral tones can also be very versatile. As your style may change over time, it’s a simple solution to switch out accessories to create an entirely different vibe in the room. You’ll be able to play around with textures, layers, and patterns on the floor and with wall decorations as they won’t compete with neutral tones the way they might with more vibrant colors. They also make it easier to create a focal point in the space as brighter colors have the opportunity to pop more against a neutral background. Use muted tones of blue, gray, or brown to tell your design story.
