How to Create a Color Flow throughout a Home

Some color consistency will create a matchless cohesive appealing look through your house, especially if it has adjacent rooms or an open floor plan. The challenge is to identify each place with a subtly different feeling and still create a harmonized masterpiece.

The most valuable advice any expert would give you is to use one single color in each room. If brown is your favorite color, add one different unifying brown element in each room and keep the other colors variable. Thereby, you can install brown backsplashes and barstools in your kitchen, an elegant brown area rug in your dining room, a brown leather sofa in your living room, and then paint your entryway walls brown.

Another way to create continuity is to paint all of the trim throughout rooms with the same color. Consider one shade of white that complement the color of your walls and apply it to all trims and moldings so that the eye could flow smoothly from one area to the other.

Alternatively, consider painting your rooms with different shades of the same color. Since colors have a great impact on the overall mood and how spacious the room looks, avoid using dark shades in small or high trafficked rooms.

Yet, the simplest way to achieve the unique feeling of flow is to choose the same three or four colors in every room. All it takes is an artistic mind to equate the proportions of the chosen colors through the house. For instance, if you choose green as an accent color in living room, make it a dominant color in dining room. If you opted for red as a secondary color in kitchen, then use it minimally in the prints of fabrics and in chandelier shades.

There are endless ideas and they’re all timeless. Also, keep in mind that in order to create the aimed-for flow throughout your house, you can connect rooms with colors and also with materials. You can use wood, metal, leather, or a specific type of fabric as your unifying element.
