6 Tips To Help You Choose the Right Colors & Textures For Any Room

Has decorating a room ever felt daunting? Or maybe you have a vision of what you want your living space to look like but just can’t seem to bring it to life. Here’s a pro tip from Tailor Made Rooms, choosing the right colors and textures can make all the difference in creating a space you are excited to show off. Beauty meets functionality when the right colors marry the right textures. The color scheme and texture you choose can make or break the overall vibe of a room. We want to help you enhance the ambiance of the spaces within your home and make them feel cozy, inviting, and stylish. Check out these six tips from Tailor Made Rooms to help you select the perfect colors and textures for your home. 

  1. Start with a color palette: The first step in choosing the right colors for any room is to select a color palette. A color palette is a collection of colors that will be used in the room. You can select a palette based on a specific style, such as coastal, bohemian, modern, or rustic. A quick Pinterest search will pull up a lovely selection of color palettes. Pay attention to what catches your eye! When selecting a color palette, try to choose colors that complement each other and work well together.

  1. Consider the natural light: The amount and quality of natural light in a room can affect the way colors appear, so it's important to take this into consideration when selecting colors for your living room. If your living room has a lot of natural light, you can afford to use bolder and brighter colors, while rooms with less natural light may benefit from lighter and softer hues.

  1. Think about the mood you are trying to create. What do you want to feel like when you walk into the room?  Different colors can evoke different moods, so it's important to think about the feeling you are trying to create. For example, blue and green shades can create a calming and soothing atmosphere, perfect for beach home decor and lake house design. Reds and oranges evoke an energetic, more powerful vibe which is great for industrial decor and barn homes.  

  1. Use textures to add depth: Textures can add depth and interest to a room, and can also help to balance out a color scheme. Incorporate different textures into your living room such as a wool throw, a woven rug, or a piece of custom wall art. These elements can add visual interest and depth to the space, making it feel more inviting.

  1. Experiment with patterns: Patterns can be a great way to add visual interest to a room and to tie different elements together. Consider adding a patterned throw pillow, an area rug, or unique custom wall art to your living room. At Tailor Made Rooms we are laser focused on making the most visually realistic textures possible in all of our personalized home decor. Sure to compliment any room! 

  1. Balance light and dark: A good way to balance the color in your living room is to mix light and dark shades. Use light-colored furniture and walls as a backdrop for darker accents such as throw pillows, rugs, and artwork. This will create a visually interesting and balanced space. If your walls are dark , contrast the dark color with a bright custom canvas from Tailor Made Rooms. For example, our bright Surf Room Decor looks great against a darker backdrop and our custom cattle ranch signs look amazing on a light farmhouse wall. 

Choosing the right colors and textures for your living room can be a fun and creative process. By considering the natural light, the mood you want to create, and the different textures and patterns available, you can create a space that is both beautiful and functional. Remember, it's okay to experiment and make changes, it's your home and it should reflect your personality. Tailor Made Rooms is proud to help you achieve the look you are longing for with custom wall art for every sacred space, every special occasion, and every single person.
