It is often the one room which you can “splash out” with and try something a little different. Feature walls painted in bold accent colours can accentuate artwork, a fireplace or a bump out. Or you can add drama with a stronger colour on the ceiling. Tinted ceilings can dramatically change the whole look of a room.

However, furniture, art and furnishings such as drapes can make this a high stakes game if you don’t like the colour combinations when the room is put back together.

Test Your Color Choices!

Boost your confidence by testing colours on poster board or large areas of a wall. Don’t be afraid to go beyond your comfort zone with experimentation by considering strong, vivid colours or soft, deep neutrals like chocolate brown or olive green as main or accent colours.
