Matching Wall Colors, Tips For Each Room

Renewing the appearance of your home does not necessarily mean making radical and expensive interventions, sometimes small changes are enough, such as replacing the color of the walls or coloring an architectural element. Whitewashing the walls is not a very complex job: with a little dexterity and a pinch of patience, you can also do it alone.


Before you panic in front of the swaddles of colors, it is better to keep in mind a few little secrets. Follow these simple tips to get a good result and find the right color combination for each environment.

• Choose a tone that matches the flooring present

Paint the walls, respecting the style and color of the furnishings

• Consider the exposure of the room to sunlight.

• Do not underestimate the influence and behavior of individual colors.

In general, neutral shades such as dove gray and the whole range of grays are the simplest choice, because they easily match any type of furniture and are perfect for any room in the house. Bright colors, on the other hand, are often considered a gamble because in the long run they can tire and above all they can make the environment appear more cramped than it actually is. However, with a few small tricks, it is also possible to use bright and unusual shades, able to create an environment with a refined design.


The sleeping area is an environment dedicated to rest and intimacy. For this room it is better to choose soothing colors, able to combine rest and relaxation.

Neutral shades such as beige, dove gray and white are certainly the most used and appreciated. These are very soft, elegant, and relaxing color palettes, capable of adapting perfectly to both classic and more modern bedrooms. Pastel shades such as pink, lilac, and blue are also very suitable colors, because they are able to promote rest, do not tire and are easy to combine.

If you want to give your bedroom a more personal style, anything is allowed! You can choose an unusual color or a more lively color but we advise you to be very careful to find the right match with the furniture. To give an original touch to the bedroom, you can also use stencil decorations, perhaps to be applied on the walls to create a sort of headboard for the bed. Remember that colors can influence your mood, better not to overdo it with too bright and stimulating colors such as red, orange, or yellow.


The most fun room to paint is definitely the children’s room. Here you can give free rein to your creativity and play with different colors and patterns. If you do not want to use traditional colors, such as pink or pastel blue, you can color to the only one wall with blue or a very bright pink, perhaps the longest one and leave the others white, so that you can customize and enrich them with drawings and photographs of your children.
