When doing a bathroom remodeling in St. Louis, it is important to choose colors that work well together, from floor to ceiling and everything in between. This means that both style and color must come together, not just the flooring, walls, and ceiling, but the bathroom fixtures and accessories as well.
Choosing the right colors for the bathroom may not come easy to everyone because color combination requires careful selection from a wide range of shades and hues. It’s not just a matter of picking your favorite colors, but also making sure that the colors go in harmony in order to build from and complement your bathroom’s overall interior design.
An article in Home Guides gives tips for homeowners looking to enhance the appearance of their bathroom by finishing the remodeling project with the colors of their choice:
“Evaluate your current bathroom size and style. Dark colors may not be appropriate for small bathrooms, whereas light colors may make a large bathroom seem empty…
Browse online photo galleries, such as the Bathroom Decor gallery at Good Housekeeping, for ideas and inspiration. Adding color to your bathroom will affect the overall mood of the room, so decide what you want your colors to express…
Collect color samples from home improvement stores. If you are using multiple colors, consult a color wheel to determine which colors are complementary. The Paint Quality Institute provides a digital color wheel, as well as color recommendations for specific moods and themes…”
The color wheel is a very helpful tool to determine which colors will look good together. First, pick a color you prefer, keeping in mind the overall mood you want for the room. If you are going for a more relaxed feel, opt for greens or blues. For a more vibrant appeal, choose from more distinctive hues from a red-orange palette.
Should you decide to use only two neutral colors, you can add a pattern or a visual texture to make the room more interesting. Light organic colors help soften the edges and shapes in the bathroom, while dark colors like browns and blacks add accentuate walls, windows, and counters. Another way for you to select colors is to draw inspiration from the rest of the home, unifying the bathroom with other rooms in the house.
Home Guides also advices homeowners to get second opinion from family members or friends. This way, your St. Louis remodeling project will give satisfactory results whether done by professionals like St. Evans, Inc. or by DIYers.
