Colors play the most important role in decorating any room. They give life and personality to the room, and help the room to stand out.

Here are some tips that should be remembered when deciding over colors:

1). When using many colors in one single room, ensure to use a color at least three times in the same room. Different shades and tints of that color can also be used. For example, pillows, tablecloth, and curtains can be of the same color. This will harmonize the room decoration, and will help in avoiding the ‘too much’ and ‘confused’ look.

2). Use warm colors such as reds, oranges, and yellows to fill the space. These colors and their shades are soothing and warm, and they tend to grab the eyes and fill the space.

3). Use cool colors such as greens, blues, and violets to give an illusion of more and open space.

4). Use pale pinks for a serene and comforting look. As the pink color gets closer to red, it becomes more energetic.

5). For giving an illusion of height, use vertical stripes on walls and curtains.

6). Use horizontal stripes on walls and curtains to give an illusion of length.

7). Use light color on the walls and ceilings to make the room look larger and more roomy.

8). Avoid using contradicting colors and themes. When you need to make your room look larger and want to use cool colors to achieve it then select a theme which best complements the cool colors.

9). If same colored carpet, sofa and other upholstery give a monotonous look then use colorful cushions and wall-hangings. This will not only break the monotony but also give the room more attractive look.

10). If you don’t want to use any color in the room then you can use black, white, and/or different shades of grays.
