Whether you’re designing your new house from scratch or just revamping it to keep it fresh, choosing the perfect wall colour that matches your personal taste as well as enhances the design theme you’re going for, is of utmost importance.

A wall colour, wallpaper or texture, is also the easiest way to make a room look elite without taking up any space. Let us take you through some tips to choose the perfect wall colour, specific to various spaces of a home;

Your living room, as the name suggests, is the space where you tend to spend most of your waking hours, communicating, celebrating or connecting with your friends and family members. It is also the space that your visitors first see when they visit your home. Which is why its design not only needs to reflect your personality but also a sense of welcoming comfort.

If contrasting shades are your thing, you can go for a bright and plain wall colour and adorn it with art pieces and furniture that complement the shade of your choice. This interior design route is great if you like to keep it minimal yet interesting.

While bright colours are great to keep in the lights in your living room, designing one which plays more with the shadows and highlights some shades is a route to a unique living room design. The second image you’ll see below is a beautiful design you could take inspiration from for the same. The interesting thing here is how it’s not just the multiple colours that paint the wall, but also the chequered and striped patterns that flow through the couch.

If the above two wall colour themes are either too plain or too loud

for you, you may consider going for cloudy wall textures coupled with metallic elements. The best thing about this wall colour style is that the set of combination options are endless. Check out these colour combinations for your living room. Keep the floor covered in grey and add velvet couches to have yourself an exquisite living room design.

The dining room is a space that is not just a place for your vase or for eating meals but to connect with your loved ones on a daily basis and sometimes, your alternate work space. The way to pick the right wall colour for this section truly depends on how you use it. If you’re an entertainer who loves hosting get-togethers and cocktail nights, going for a bold and vibrant colour like green or pink would set the tone right. While if you often use the space to enjoy your morning peace and get your creative fluids flowing, neutrals like grey, beige or black would be a good pick.

Wood is also a great material to add some cognac to your dining room design. Throw in some velvet chairs and a crystal chandelier and you’ll have yourself a beautiful, contemporary space.

We all know how private and special one’s bedroom space is as it is where we go back to every night, to relax and rejuvenate ourselves. Depending on what your personal style and muse is, you only need to keep one thing in mind while picking colour combinations for your bedroom - which colour makes you feel calm? Use that as your wall colour, adorn it with some art if you enjoy it, an interesting headboard if it makes you feel comfortable or add some house plants to add some freshness to this indoor space.

While picking every piece for your bedroom, keep the golden question in mind and you will walk into your cocoon and come out happy every morning!

Much like your dining space, your kitchen’s wall colour must be picked keeping in mind what and how you use it most. If it is an open kitchen which becomes a part of your hang at every dinner party, keeping it sleek yet enticing using geometric patterns on neutral colours would be a good call. If your kitchen is your zen zone because you love to cook, go for dark or light wood walls as it really tends to enhance the aroma and mood of the space.

Be it a Victorian kitchen or a retro haven, picking a wall colour for this space is very simple. Just think of the colour and/or patterns that drives your appetite as well as your energy levels.

When it comes to doing your bathroom walls, the choice is truly endless. Not just for colours and patterns but also for the material. Be it tiles, marble, glass or plain plaster, the key here to pick the material you like and then dive into the colour and pattern options. Best guide for the later? Which design theme do you resonate with the most? Is it modern architecture or pop art? Victorian or vintage? The choices, as you might know, are endless. So close your eyes, pick what you like and just make sure it’s practical and functional to the core of this space - sanitation.

The best way to design a kid’s bedroom is by asking the kid about the colours, hobbies and characters he or she likes most. While you must include these to keep things exciting and functional for the kid, the wall colour must essentially either be neutral or a vibrant shade that fills the space with positive and creative energies. Green,red and yellow are great colour combinations for just that. You can always use prints, furniture and lights to make the space more comfortable and functional for your child.
