What’s the Focal Point of Your Room?
Have you ever noticed that your eye is drawn to where there’s color or interest? That’s what happens in a room. Where you put color—whether the window or the wall—becomes the focal point. It’s easy to overdo, though, so be careful! If you’re interested in exploring color for your room, talk with one of the trained consultants at Windows & More. We’ll be happy to help you determine what’s best.
Design Tips About Color
- If your frame is white and the window treatment is also white, the walls and accessories will become the focus. On a window, the general rule is to blend it in to the frame, especially the functioning window treatments that provide light control and privacy.
- Hues such as gold, orange, red-orange, red, and magenta have brown undertones and will blend into wood, which can make the space seem smaller.
- On the other hand, hues with black undertones such as purple, blue, indigo, green, and teal all enhance wood and visually expand space, making it look bigger.
Design Tips About Light
The light will change four times throughout the day, so know that the colors in a room will also change in appearance.
- The light will feel warm in the early morning.
- The light will be cool through the window at noon.
- With the evening sunset, light will feel warm again.
- When it’s dark, your room will be lit with artificial light, which can impact color greatly.
To see how the light affects color, use a swatch on the wall or on the window (in the form of a paint chip or some fabric). Live with the color for at least 48 hours before you make a decision for your walls and or windows.
