8 Ideas for Keeping Neutral Rooms Interesting

Home Improvement
Many people love to poke fun at the idea of a neutral room. They are called "boring," "old," "stuffy," or "outdated"; the word beige is itself a synonym for the dull and unstimulating. However, some people enjoy the serenity and comfort of earth-toned walls and furniture. The key to staying neutral without being stale is to design with neutral colors like beige, tan, white, canvas, etc., in mind. Here are 8 tips for staying neutral but keeping your rooms exciting.

1. Freshen Up Your Walls and Ceiling

There's a chance that the problem with your room isn't necessarily the color of the walls and ceiling but the state of the paint on them. Consider enlisting professional services like interior painting in Kennesaw to refresh your room and wake it up with a new coat of paint. Old paint can be dusty, dull, or faded, especially in areas that are exposed to sunlight. Compare a new, white, button-down shirt with one that has faded over time; the same effect happens on walls, especially when the paint is of low quality.

2. Consider Neutrals with a Twist

The neutral color category is actually a diverse group. Your choices are not limited to the obvious beige, eggshell, and off-white. Consider other neutrals like dusty pink, khaki, stone gray, sepia, and other rich colors that have character and color without being too loud or wild.

3. Replace Color with Texture and Pattern

Where diverse color is lacking, texture and pattern can take the reins. Add interest to a room with textured paint--this looks best when applied by a professional--and patterned objects. Consider furnishing a room with a few objects of varied texture such as rough wood, perfectly smooth glass, and tufted cushions.

4. Go 100% Neutral

Sometimes, confidence in your tastes is all you need. If you enjoy a neutral-colored space, then neutralize everything! Go zen or minimalist with a bright space; be sure that your walls, floor, furniture, accessories, and even art are completely neutral. The final effect will be unexpected and unique.

5. Contrast Light and Dark

You can incorporate a variety of interesting colors in your room without having to buy a red sofa or having your walls painted blue. Consider balancing neutrals with a few dark brown pieces, pearly white walls, and other different shades of varying intensity. The variety of light vs. dark will make a room interesting and special.

6. Add Loud Accents

A highly contemporary way to approach design is to allow a few accessories or pieces of art to be the primary focal points of an interior. This requires that the rest of the room stay neutral, lest these bright accents make the room too busy. For example, allow a purely white dining room to have a blue table centerpiece and 2 blue art pieces on opposite walls.

7. Choose Quality Decor

When color does not demand excess attention, the quality of all of your pieces will be much more evident. A room full of blue and gold furniture and accents will be notable for its coloring and tight color palette. You may not notice the quality of a blue sofa simply because it matches everything else. In a neutral space, though, your decor should be of high quality. The shape and texture of these pieces can then be appreciated.

8. Choose Quality Paint Jobs

Dull coloring often has more to do with the quality of the item than it does the specific shade. While low-quality paint or a bad paint job can result in bland and flat walls, an excellent paint job will be smooth, vibrant, and even glossy. Your entire home will look more elegant and interesting, even in a neutral color palette. All it takes is high-quality interior painting in kennesaw to make any room of any shade truly shine.
