Colour schemes

The tool, available at most home improvement stores, shows you how colour relate to and complement each other, dividing them into primary, secondary and tertiary colours. All you need to do is pinpoint your main colour to see what hues match.

Here are a few questions you should ask yourself when using a colour wheel to develop the colour scheme in your home:

How do you want your home to feel?

Warm colours like reds, oranges and yellows will give your home a cozy and lively feel and are easily incorporated with rich earthy tones. Cooler colours like blues, greens and purples will provide a more laid-back feel and pair nicely with deeper greyscale tones.

What colours do you love most?

Which colours are you drawn to most? Flip through magazines or check out Pinterest to get an idea of what colour schemes you’re attracted to before investing money in your project .

What colours are you stuck with?

If you’re not in the position for a major renovation project, consider what colour options you do have to implement, based on more fixed features, (floors or cabinets) that you  do not plan to replace for a while.
