Do you have a cohesive color flow throughout your home?

Each person has their own specific taste when it comes to the interior design of their home - some prefer bold and bright colours while others prefer subtle, neutral colours. There are no set rules when it comes to the type of colours you should have in your home but it’s important to make sure that there is a cohesive colour flow throughout your home.

We want to help you make your home beautiful, practical and comfortable. Here’s what you need to know about creating a cohesive color flow throughout your home.

Flow-through colour

You need a consistent colour scheme to connect the different sections of your home, especially if you have an open plan design. Choose one neutral colour to dominate the space on your walls. This way, you can use accent walls and decoration to add personality to your rooms.

If you want to add more colours, stick to colours in the same temperature family. So, for a warm colour scheme, stick to yellows, oranges and reds and for a cool colour scheme, stick to greens, greys and blues.

Another way to ensure you have a cohesive flow throughout your home is to use math, namely the 60-30-10 Formula. Basically, your base colour should make up about 60%, your secondary colour should make up about 30% and your accent colour/ colours should make up about 10% of your interior.

One main style

Coastal, shabby chic, minimalist, contemporary, Scandinavian, mid-century modern, industrial- there are so many amazing interior styles to choose from and you can make any of these themes look absolutely gorgeous in your home. But, if you want your house to flow nicely, you need to stick to one theme. Make sure you have something, no matter how small, in every room that links back to your interior style.

Uniform trim around windows and doors

Don’t mix and match the frames around your windows and doors. When it comes to adding other features in your home, like furniture, shelving, cabinets and distinctive architectural elements, if you can, try to keep it similar to your window and door frames.

Flooring should enhance the flow

Especially when it comes to large open areas, sticking to one type of flooring creates an even flow through your home. This is not to say you can’t have different flooring in bedrooms and bathrooms. When it comes to rugs, make sure all your rugs are similar to each other - they don’t have to be exactly the same, but they should have similar tones.

Fabrics should work well together

Fabrics don’t have to match entirely - it’s better if you don’t make your home look too matchy-matchy, but it is important to have fabrics that work well together.

For example, you can repeat a pattern or colour in various rooms of your home to tie your rooms together. You can also carry a specific wood tone or accent colour throughout your home with furniture, curtains, shelving or rugs. The repeated element will create a sense of consistency throughout your home.

Your home should look and feel beautiful to you

No matter how you decide to design your interior, the most important thing to remember is that you should absolutely love your home! Let us know how you’ve created a cohesive flow through your home!
