With a new year comes not only a new you, but a new home. However, home renovations are expensive, tedious and all-around never-ending. If you’re looking for a simple change with drastic effects, studies have shown that a change of colour on your walls can affect our overall mood and thoughts. Certain colours tend to have a certain psychological effect on our emotions and temperament. Below, Pyngle has compiled a list of rooms and colours that most positively influence their purpose.
Like most families, our lives tend to revolve around the kitchen. From the school morning scramble to the neighbourhood dinner parties, a white kitchen brings a much-needed burst of energy. White paint also makes your kitchen look larger and gives you the ability to decorate any way you please with bursts of colour.
The Living Room
Earthy tones like brown and beige (with a pop of green) create a warm environment. These colours promote conversation and encourage families to reconnect with one another after a busy day. Brown paint will invoke calmness and warmth and can really change the environment of your living room.
The bedroom is where you unwind and rejuvinate in order to tackle the next day. Painting your bedroom with cool tones such as blues, greens, and lavenders create a calming environment. This can facilitate sleep as it lowers blood pressure and heart rate.
Colours such as sea foam green are often associated with spas. Evoking such associations can bring feelings of cleanliness and calmness. This cool tone will provide your personal retreat with a sense of rejuvenation and a fresh start to your day. Also, using colours with hints of blue is flattering on any person. When spending so much time in the bathroom, it’s a good idea to pick colours that are flatter yourself!
The Home Office
Yellow paint promotes creativity and self-confidence, two factors that are crucial to succeeding in your home office. And no surprise, yellow also invokes positivity and energy. This gives you that extra boost you need to increase productivity in your work.
