Whole House, Same Color
If you have just moved into a new home or if you are thinking about repainting your current place, then you are probably thinking about what paint color would be best for your indoor environment. Some homeowners believe that painting the interior of their home the same color throughout the entire place is the best option for them. Other homeowners consider the same paint color throughout the entire house too monotonous or dull. If you are considering new paint for your home, then you may think about painting the same color in every room. There are some advantages and disadvantages to this way of decorating that you may want to consider first.
For most people who plan to paint every room the same color, neutral paint color options are typically the best choice. White, off-white, tan, gray, or greige are common options for whole-house painting. If these neutral colors are used in the home’s interior, then the homeowner can easily add a pop of color with furniture, rugs, wall hangings, or other decorative items that are placed strategically around each room. An advantage to decorating with the same color throughout your home is that the flow through the house will be continual, and it is relatively easy to create a unique space within each room with varying decorative items.
Some property owners decide that using the same color in every room of a home is too monotonous for their environment. If you would like to create an indoor setting that has optimal continuity but is not all the same color, then use paint colors that are in the same paint color palette. For example, if you like the color gray, you can use varying shades of gray throughout your home, which will create a unique setting for different rooms around your home and will present a continuous flow throughout the space, too.
One thing is for sure if you decide to paint the inside of your home all the same color, or even if you choose to use the same color palette throughout your home, then make sure it is a color that you enjoy. Whether you are looking for a color that offers peacefulness and tranquility, or a fun and festive paint color, it should be something that complements your style and taste for your place.
