It is true that moderate classic is timeless. Too much variety and striking color are impressive at first glance, but in the long term it will begin to provoke and irritate it impossible to concentrate. On the contrary room furnished only in two or three colors is elegant. Bold colors are suitable for smaller items and accessories or furniture used for our convenience – seating, bed, chair. It is also true that the colors represented abundantly in nature are soothing and long-term effect on the human psyche positively.

Carefully consider the colors of the floor, walls, ceiling and large pieces of furniture. The colors of the room can visually reduce or enlarge, shorten or lengthen, take them to the light, they can calm down and worry. The basis of our feelings is a natural habitat in the wild. Darker colors absorb light, the space is not only dark, but is also optically smaller, light contrast color space increases space. Dark colors on walls enclose space and arouse feelings of unease, light walls, on the contrary, open spaces and are airy.

Appropriate color combinations floors, walls and ceiling, you can visually expand, narrow, increase or decrease the space. Too high ceilings decrease darker color in contrast with the light walls. Opposite combination, dark walls with light-ceilinged space increases and decreases.

A long narrow room can be cut with a dark color on shorter walls. Small rooms, complex-shaped walls with many corners, rooms with small windows and lack of daylight require bright colors. The room that has sloping walls look open and spacious, if walls remain white, without color. Color Density raises different feelings on the walls than on the floor. While the sky is bright, the ground beneath their feet is solid, dark. Therefore, at home works more natural light neutral walls and ceiling, then space is airy. Darker floor provides a sense of stability, too bright floors give the impression that they can not safely enter.

What applies to the walls, also applies to large pieces of furniture such as cabinets. Massive furniture will be minimally noticeable when merges with the walls, will not stand out so much into the area and will not diminish daylight. Horizontal surfaces, such as a table top or worktop, can be darker. The darker wall may be behind headboard, behind our head, there provides a sense of security.

You can look, for example, at the color wheel in any major home improvement store that has a department with paintings. One color continuously changes the color of the other and can be combined with white, black and gray. Warm colors (quiet and comfortable) are on the right, cool colors on the left. Opposite colors are contrasting, adjacent colors together harmoniously.

Green, blue or gray belongs to cooler colors that soothe and encourage action.

Yellow tones can replace the missing sun and make a room more sunnier, while in overheated rooms they will multiply feeling of hot sun, there are better to use cooler colors.

The red color is warm and popular, with the use in the interior is very strong and impressive, but also an irritant and eventually may begin to interfere. Similarly irritating colors are as well purple, deep pink, orange and other bright colors. Red and orange promote appetite, and they are useful in the kitchen and dining room.
