How to Choose a Color Scheme for a Living Room

When you have a whole house or apartment to decorate, it can be tempting to choose a color scheme that will work in every room. With just a few strategic decisions, you can create a look that works with the other decor in your home and sets the right tone for your space.

Choose either neutral colors or warm colors depending on what you want to emphasize in your space. If you live in an apartment, then choosing neutral colors is probably the best option.

They won’t make people feel as if they’re living inside of an industrial warehouse and they’ll work well with any furniture you already own.

What Colors to Avoid

When choosing a color scheme for your living room, you’ll want to avoid any colors that may feel too bold or too busy. Instead, look for a color scheme that creates a feeling of calmness in the room.

Avoid blue and purple, as these are commonly known as “nervous rooms” colors. Blue is known as an “unhappy” color, while purple is known as a “melancholic” color.

While you may like the look of purple or blue, it’s important to note that people subconsciously associate these colors with sadness or nervousness. It’s best to avoid using these colors in your living room.

When to Use Neutral Colors

Neutral colors are the ones that don’t really have a “color” or specific “shade” attached to them. They can be used in any room of your house without making the room feel too “boring” or “samey.”

A good neutral color for your living room can be a light shade of gray, beige, or white. This will make it easy to change out your furniture and decorations without feeling like you have to start from scratch.

When to Use Warm Colors

Warm colors are commonly associated with the sun and springtime. When you think of warm colors, you may think of red, orange, yellow, and even some shades of green.

These colors help bring the room together by conjoining the other colors in your living room with the walls, furniture, and accessories in your space. Warm colors are also good for making your living room feel more inviting, making it feel as if people can come in and relax.

What Colors Go With Which Other Ones?

When choosing a color scheme for your living room, you’ll want to think about which colors go with which other colors. For example, a red couch goes well with a red wall, but it doesn’t go too well with a light-blue couch.

The same is true for the other colors in your living room. If you choose a color for your walls, then you’ll want to consider what furniture goes well with that color. .

You’ll also want to think about what accessories go best with the other colors in your living room.

Tips For Choosing a Color Scheme for Your Living Room

Depending on the size of your home, you may want to choose between a few different color schemes for your living room.If you live in a 1 bedroom apartment, then you may only want to choose one color scheme.

If you live in a 4 bedroom house, you may want to choose several different color schemes to suit the various spaces in your home. Before you choose a color scheme, think about the mood you want your space to convey.

Living rooms are typically associated with positive feelings, such as warmth, relaxation, and companionship.

You may also want to consider the decor in your home and other spaces in your home. If the other rooms in your home are, for example, painted in a warm color scheme, then you may want to choose a cooler color for your living room.

We love the house and the job done on it! The painters did fantastic work (even painted the deck at no charge), and it’s hard not to smile when we pull in the driveway. I’d say the only road bump we encountered was weather and planning. It was nice to have Tom come out to walk me through..
