A safe choice for home coloring usually falls on neutral colors. White, cream, pastel, or cool-looking colors such as green and blue can be the main candidates. In fact, you can be creative using other colors that are more challenging. For example, gray. Grey color may be risky, but with the right match, the gray color can still look attractive and soothing in the bedroom.
For some people, gray is the preferred color because it is not as gloomy as black but not as bright as white. As a combination of these two contrasting colors, gray is often chosen as a paint color for a minimalist home because it is simple with an adult impression. Unfortunately, many people do not understand how to use the gray to make their minimalist home to be awesome. You can make the all-gray interior to look richer even though it actually consists of only one color. The trick is to apply various gradations of gray, ranging from a faint gray that is almost white, soft gray to dark gray. Creating variations of color gradation provides a more varied choice of minimalist home paint colors. This trick is often used by homeowners who want to create a house with a single color theme, but do not want the house look messy. Below we explain more about tips and tricks that you can use as a guide.
Try to determine first whether you will use gray to create a room that looks bright or dark, warm or cold. Grey colors that seem cool can look attractive when combined with warm colors like brown or yellow on other materials. Meanwhile, warm gray can look special when combined with other materials that have black, white or metallic accents. We give three different examples to make it easier for you. The first example is a bedroom with soft gray walls. Although using grey walls, the room seems to stay bright with the large glass windows. To reduce the cold impression, then use the wood floor as a floor covering. Grey walls fit in combination with dark wood floors. To compensate for the dark gray color, use white gray color for the ceiling.
Unlike the first example, you are now just changing the application of gray to your wood walls and floors. Use dark gray for walls, white for the ceiling, and soft gray on hardwood floors. Because dark walls can make the whole room seem dim, then use a sparkling element to balance it. Try using a sparkling chandelier as the source of lighting in the bedroom. You can also take advantage of the dark gray color that almost looks like black to outsmart the bedroom with too much sunlight. Do not forget to mix it with white sheets, curtains, and furniture to complement the room.
In the third example, you can also use the ombre effect where the more upwards the gray will be brighter. The boundaries are blurred or out of sight and do not create a straight line boundary. For example, at the very bottom of the wall is colored dark gray almost black, then gradually become soft gray continue until the color of the wall gradually whites as it reaches the ceiling. Expert painters can create this ombre effect with satisfying results or you can find the information on how to create this ombre effect yourself (widely available on home decorating sites).
