How To Choose Home Colours And Materials

March, 2020

It really comes down to personal preference, but if you’re at square 1 and have no clue as to what you like, then a great place to start getting inspiration is by browsing through platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram by searching for interior designers and architects - they often have fantastic taste and the platforms are great to brainstorm ideas.

It’s a great idea to make a document that you can populate with your favourite ideas and the best colour schemes you’ve found online. We recommend giving everyone in your family access to this document so you can all brainstorm and share any great ideas you might have.

Now, of course, the colour scheme can greatly affect the mood and vibe of your home, so it’s quite important to choose wisely, and imagine how these colours will affect the overall vibe of your home. Be sure to keep in mind that you could possibly be selling this house in the future, so try to add a bit of extra value by using a really nice colour scheme and range of materials throughout - ensuring the colours are going to be appreciated by a large demographic.

Using the same materials throughout your home is a fantastic way to make it feel more luxurious and look stunning. For instance, having all doorknobs, door handles, hinges, taps etc. the same colour and material. One of the cleanest schemes is a basic powder-coated black for fixings and polished concrete flooring and walls.
