How To Pick The Perfect Colors For Your Blinds

Posted on

Choosing a color for your room's blinds can be a frustrating process. That's why it's helpful to have a plan for the types of colors you would consider for your blinds. You want colors that will fit in with the decor of the rest of the room. Making conscientious color choices can give your home a look that is comfortable, pleasing, and fits your own personal style. Using the following tactics, you can be confident that the color of blinds that you choose will complement your home's interior. 

Fade Your Central Hue

Whatever the core color of a particular room is (mostly grays, mostly oranges, etc.), consider lightening that hue and making this the color of your blinds in the room. For example, if your main hue is black, get grey blinds. If the room in question in mostly a dark green, use a light olive color for the blinds. Adding this bit of contrast can keep your rooms from seeming smaller and more dismal because of all the dark coloring. Dark colors can be stylish, but can also feel "heavy" to the eye of a guest. 

Deepen Your Central Hue

On the flip side, if you are using lighter, brighter colors throughout your room (pastels or neon for instance), you may want to darken the shade of your blinds. For example, if your room is mostly a pale pink, make the blinds a deep scarlet. If your room is mostly chocolate brown, use a sandy tan for the blinds for the windows. Adding this bit of contrast can keep your rooms from seeming startlingly bright and overwhelming to the eyes of your guests. 

Using Complementary Coloring

On a color wheel, each color has a color that opposes it on the other side of the wheel. For example, oranges are across from blues, and purples are across from yellows. You can find a picture of a color wheel online and figure out which color opposes your room's core color and use that as your color for your blinds. 

This tactic is definitely eye-catching due to the sometimes stark differences between the colors. However, these colors can often complement--as the name implies--each other well. For example, an all-white room might look nice with black blinds on the windows. 

Decorating the interior of your home can be a daunting task, especially if you really want to impress your guests and make your family feel comfortable in the space.
