Here we have a few tips for you to make your house rock to this new and trendy rhythm of today.
Try It Out: You do not have to rush it or put on a dark paint on the wall just because you saw a friend putting a darker shade and it looked well. Go slow and try with a small tester into an inconspicuous place. And then see the feel of it. Imagine it on the entire wall and see how you would take and decor it. Let it rest there for a few days to see if it doesn’t bore you. Take several opinions of your partner or family too so they don’t blame you later for it.
Take A Fancy: Sometimes a small amount may not be able to push you enough to take a decision in favor or against a wall paint. In that case, fancy the entire mixing and contrasting on a board with an entire interior and colorful rendition to test how it will look when finished and to judge your own like and dislike about it. As this will give you an entire image and feel of the room and you can better decide what to opt for.
Arrange The Lights: When you have decided to go for the dark painted walls then you need a right sort of light in a right amount to enhance the wall paint and room feel. When you have darker room then you must let in a lot of natural light. Drape your curtain in a way that you can allow a lot of the sun light in the rooms to make them brighter, shinier and create a holistic atmosphere in the dark.
Coordination: Now that you have painted the walls dark, you need to work on the coordination of your room. The placement of the furniture, your frames and lamps. Curtains or blinds or window shutters, and all such decorations which now need to coordinate with your wall paint in contrast or it will all become too darker to survive for long. The entire scheme should be planed properly to arrange and coordinate your room well with its complete setting as you wouldn’t want to mismatch the interior of your room with your wall paint and destroy the ambiance of the darker shade.
More Light: Since darker rooms have dark edges and corners you need a lot of light to keep it alighted and illuminated. If you are more of a fan for the intimate bedroom in a darker atmosphere then you are set with minimum of three wall lights only or loads of candles can bring the ambiance you desire. But if you want to create a dramatic and intimidating feel then you need to flood the room with artificial source of light through various sources that could penetrate to the far and wide corners of the room, conveniently making your room lit with light and enhancing every angle of your room.
Give It Personality: Coloring your room dark might not be as effectual as you wanted when you planned to go for it because a single tone never really impresses anyone. It makes things very dull killing any brightness and vibe in the atmosphere. If you need a dark wall paint to work in your home, you need to create a lot of contrasts to give it a personality. The texture can be magical if given in the contrasting tones on the wall paint. Or go for more brass and metal decorations because they look even more lavish in the darker atmosphere. Enhance your architectural decorations with opposite or lighter shades like beams, galleries or a fireplace. To give your room a wide feeling color the ceiling with a very light tone so it could seem higher, making your room bigger than its actual size. Add contrasting furnishings, frames and even artworks on the wall to make your room vibrant, lavish and luxurious.
