How To Use Color To Achieve The Vibe Your Desire

Color has a powerful impact on the mood of a room. Some homeowners like their homes to feel bright and cheery, while others prefer a warm, cozy vibe. Either way, color plays a big role in how a space is perceived. If you’re looking for new ways to use color to your advantage, check out the suggestions below. 

Colors To Suit Your Needs And Preferences

The key to using color to achieve a certain mood or vibe is to start with colors you like and then branch out from there, choosing shades and hues that evoke the feeling you’re going for. Check out the four ways below to use color to achieve certain feelings. 

Happy And Energizing

Kitchens and other communal spaces call for cheerful, happy feels, and you can achieve this by using warm colors like red, orange, and yellow. Whether you use these colors on the walls or as accents is up to you, but don’t be afraid to let their cheerful nature shine. 

Soothing And Tranquil

Green and blue mimic the colors of nature, which can have a calming, relaxing effect on mood. Choose shades of blue and green for bedrooms, bathrooms, and any other area of your home that you want to encourage relaxation. When choosing the shades, remember that the more white is mixed with the color, the more pastel – and calming – it will be. 

Warm And Cozy

Warm, earthy shades like brown, taupe, and beige add a cozy vibe to any space. Especially great in living rooms, these colors invite you to hunker down for a while. If these neutral tones are too bland for you, don’t be afraid to use other earthy tones like olive green, muddied mauve, or mustard yellow in place of brown, as they have a brown undertone that evokes the same “hunker down” vibe.
