Decorating a home is such an exciting thing to do but there are a lot of things to think about. For example, don’t just think about what you like to look at, think about how a room is going to make you feel. We’ve rounded up some advice from the experts on specific colors and how they can affect how you feel in your home.
A general primer about how to use colors
We will get into specific colors and how they affect your mood, but first let’s discuss colors in a more general way. Studies have shown that cool colors can actually soothe a person, help them feel serene, and improve their focus. On the other hand, warm colors can promote activity, make people more social, and help them stay away.
Specific colors and what they can do
The above gives you a general idea of what hues of colors can do, but let’s discuss specific colors and the reactions they can cause.
- Red. This is the color of warning and danger, but it can also promote love, passion, and warmth.
- Pink. Essentially a lighter shade of red, pink is the color of romance and femininity.
- Yellow. If you want to catch someone’s attention hang yellow curtains or use yellow in other areas of the home.
- Blue. If you want to feel calm, blue hues are a good choice.
- Black. For some, this brings to mind death and evil, but it can also bring to mind formality, sophistication, and even authority.
Studies have shown the above to be true but, once again, we have to make sure that every customer understands that we believe the first and most important thing when shopping for curtains is to choose something you like.
