Interior designers use color as a basic yet important tool in every project. Color can create balance within a room. Each space should have a combination of light, medium and dark tones to give it a sense of balance. By including all three, the room will feel complete and comfortable.
For example, if the room has lots of natural light due to large or many windows, a dark floor might be helpful to visually “anchor” the room. In this same room, medium toned wood furniture pieces or upholstery items and light colored walls will create this relaxed and balanced feeling. If furniture is light or very reflective, such as chrome and glass pieces, stronger accent colors or walls painted with stronger or darker colors will lend a balanced look, or if you prefer quiet neutral walls, then there’s your opportunity to add a darker floor.
There are many ways to successfully use color to give the balanced look every room requires.
