The colour palette in your house will say a lot about your personality. But choosing the right colour can be daunting. That is why in this article, we’ll go through tips and tricks that will help you select the right colour for your home.

Colour wheel

Use a colour wheel to choose the right colours. As with the colours in general, there are three kinds namely primary, secondary and tertiary.

Red, yellow and blue are called primary colours; orange, green and purple are the secondary colours, and tertiary colours are those we get when we combine primary and secondary colours.

Discern  rooms that are visible to one another.

While walking through the house, you’ll need to start noticing if you can see rooms that are next to the room that you are in. You’ll also need to discern what part of the rooms is visible as well.


You can make use of a rough sketch in order to get the idea right. You’ll need to know how far down the room one can see from the adjoining room. After you’ve made these plans, keep them by your side as you’ll need them.

The central most room in your house should dictate what the house will look like

Usually, the kitchen or the living room, a great place to start deciding the colour for the house is the most centrally located room. If you can’t decide on a colour, you can always pick white.

If you can’t decide what the colour of that particular room would be, then determine which room should have the boldest tone. This is particularly pleasing for people who love picking out colours. It is always a great idea to colour the walls with different shades of the same colour. This makes picking colours easier as well as add depth and interest to the house.

Picking colours for open spaces

Picking colours for open spaces can be tricky since a considerable area of the house can be seen at once. You can choose colour schemes that go well in nature and pick the same colours for open spaces for guaranteed colour harmony.

Working on different storeys of the house

You can always create two different moods if there are two floors in your house. But it is essential to focus on one storey at a time to not mix the vibes.

If you have connecting spaces in your house, pick a neutral colour like white or beige to give visitors a sense of peace and calm between two areas.
