Keeping hues in proportion provides balance to a room's color scheme
Sep 6 2011
Keeping a balance between neutral and bold hues in a design scheme is a method that decorating experts use to make sure no single color dominates a room.
Balancing a room's colors between neutrals and bold hues keeps one color from dominating.
Home decorators can follow their lead by using this rule of thumb - keep the proportions of colors in wall colors, window coverings and upholstery in equal proportion, according to the RemodelingCenter.com.
By balancing the main background colors of a room, homeowners have an easier time incorporating accessories in bright colors to accent walls and furniture. Then a darker color can be chosen for an area rug to anchor the room without overpowering other elements, the website advises.
As one of the major elements, the window treatments chosen can be a strong focal point as long as the proportion to the rest of the room is correct. One way to do that is to choose a covering such as roman shades from Blinds Chalet that bring both texture and color to the mix because they are available in so many materials. They can be drawn according to how much sunlight is desired and lowered to provide privacy at night.
