5 Ways to Use Neutral Colors in a Tiny Home
Some of us prefer to be surrounded by the chaos of bright colors and vivid artwork on a regular basis. However, a simpler home with a tight setup is best suited to neutral colors. These shades are conducive to calm thoughts in a tight space that can often produce opposite feelings. Luckily, we’ve outlined 5 ways for you to use neutral colors in a tiny home.
1. Incorporate Varied Colors and Textures
Decorate with the different shades and textures associated with a base color – it will add depth to your tiny space. For instance, if red is your color of choice, find vases, bookshelves, and trinkets in multiple shades (rose, rust, clay, etc.) and accessorize accordingly.
2. Accessorize with the Undertones of Your Wallpaper
Let your wallpaper guide the color of the pieces that will accent a room. Wallpaper usually has a warm or cool undertone that you can match with your room’s décor.
3. Enhance Neutral Tones with Soft Lighting
For lighter neutral colors that reflect the light throughout your room, use soft illumination. It will cast silken shadows across your neutral surfaces. These shadows add depth and definition, creating the illusion of a larger space.
4. Offset Monotony with a Bright Focal Wall
Sometimes neutral colors in a tiny home can be monotonous and boring. To add a vivid splash to each room, use a single wall as your brightly-colored focal point. The remaining walls can serve as the understated complements.
5. Avoid Colors That Aggravate
Colors like deep red, pitch black, and stark yellow are known to stoke aggression and anxiety from time to time. Avoid the effects these colors have on your mood by choosing soothing hues for each room in your tiny home. Pastel blues, violets and pinks are known to evoke good vibrations.
Experiment Before Finalizing
These tips will act as a loose guide to neutral colors, but we can’t choose the correct hues for you. Research, use your creativity, and experiment with samples before settling on the neutral color that’s best suited to your tiny home.
