Can you consider neutral colors to be uninteresting? We’ll bust the myth that being bold is better. Of course, there’s still space for a splash of color in your life. But there are a lot of compelling reasons to keep your interior design in a neutral color scheme. Indeed, a calm, neutral background helps you to highlight some pretty bold elements in your design that would otherwise seem garish.
Here are some of the best reasons to go with a more basic, neutral tone-on-tone paint scheme for your home’s interior:
Neutral Colors Show Off Furnishings and Textures
This textural design secret is well-known among interior designers. When warm textures like rough-hewn wooden objects, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets are combined with a neutral background, the result is an inviting interior.
If you paint the walls a vivid orange, for example, the bold color takes center stage, and any textural elements fade into the background. When done correctly, this isn’t always a bad thing, but omitting a layered. Textural architecture might make a space feel unwelcoming. Simply put, layering textiles is the secret to building become a well-designed environment. And neutral colors make it easier to do so. For millennia, the Scandinavians have mastered this architectural style.
Never Grow Tired Of Neutral
The great thing about neutral shades is that you’ll never get bored of them. Neutral will never go out of style. If the mood hits and you feel you need some cheerful colors in your life, all you have to do is add a few cheap pillows in a bold color. Consider a neutral paint palette an opportunity that will help you escape the buyer’s remorse. The bedroom in the picture below is a great example of how to use neutrals effectively. Consider this bedroom with its brightly colored walls… It wouldn’t be the same relaxing bedroom refuge as it is now.
Neutral Colors Offer Colorful Opportunities
We are aware of your concerns. Do you want a one-of-a-kind interior that reflects your vivid personality? But you don’t think a neutral home will fit for you, do you?
That’s incorrect! This is all the more reason to go for a neutral color scheme in your home. With a neutral backdrop, your personal preferences will shine through. This helps you to flaunt all of your cool design choices and personal style.
Neutral walls, particularly in modern interiors, are popular because they enable the lines of high-quality furniture. And of course the architecture of a space to come alive and be seen.
Neutral Works For Any Style
We’ve already discussed why neutral colors are best for contemporary interiors, but here’s the best part about them: they go with every theme! A neutral backdrop is perfect for someone who is modern, traditional, eclectic, or loves rustic country charm.
White and grey neutral walls (which are very trendy right now), according to home stager Barb Schwarz, make a space seem bigger, more airy, tidy, and inviting. She goes on to say that these neutral colors go with every design or variety of tastes, enabling potential home buyers to see themselves in the room with their own furnishings. Rather, it is for the savvy home builder who enjoys leaving their choices open that neutral is anything but dull.
Neutral Interior is timeless
The most critical benefit of decorating in neutral colors is that they are completely timeless. They’ll never go out of style and they’ll still be considered timeless, so neither you nor any trend will ever get tired of them.
If your décor is built on a foundation of neutral colors, you can easily add fashionable and/or bright colors and prints whenever the mood hits. Neutrals are seen by certain homeowners and interior designers as an investment that guarantees a timeless interior.
Increased resale value
Who’d have guessed those avocado-green bathrooms from the 1970s would become so dated? But only because the pattern was confined doesn’t mean the neutral one is. In reality, choosing neutral tones in your interior design would appeal to more prospective customers (if you decide to sell).
Neutral colors also improve the flow of a home’s rooms, resulting in a softer and more physically appealing atmosphere. This is something that most homeowners want (even subconsciously), so neutrals cater to a wide range of styles, tastes, and desires.
Makes alterations easier
If a neutral colors are used, every room can be renovated and touched up with much less difficulty. Consider how much better it is to adjust the décor in the living room (rug, scatter cushions, window treatment) when the walls are off-white and the sofas are beige. Those new colors you choose to put into the room will blend in even better with the current neutrals.
To put it another way, decorating with neutral colors as a basis saves time and money. So, why don’t you give it a shot?
