The Impact of Colours on Interior Design

December 30, 2016

Colours play a very important role when undertaking an interior design project. Colour is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them. To see colour, you have to have light. When light shines on an object some colours bounce off the object and others are absorbed by it. Our eyes only see the colours that are bounced off or reflected. Colour is a very important aspect of interior design. A well planned space can be enhanced by appropriate colours. An understanding of the colour theories and effects also supports confidence in use of colour in practice.

WHAT is the use of the space you are choosing colour for?

The colour used for residential interior design can be selected by the choice & taste of the owner.

WHO is the one you choose the particular colour for their space?

While you choose the colour keep in mind that the space can be used by different age group, for what all purpose the space can be used etc

The steps to follow while developing correct colour schemes for successful interior design

1. Developing an abstract colour charts

Developing colour charts can be useful in developing satisfactory colour schemes for interior spaces.

2. Defining elements of an interior space

Define the elements of the interior space that a designer is to conceive.

3. Developing material charts

After selecting the colour match it with the chart colour.

4. Creating coloured layouts and space designs

After the abstract colour and material charts are derived and the elements of interior space are determined, the next is to transfer the material chart to a space layout or model.

5. Practical testing

The actual materials when applied in real sometimes may appear very different from their samples; hence some practical testing on smaller areas on the site is useful.

There are wide range of colour options you could go for depending on the type and size of the room you are decorating.
