Creams, browns, grays, and other neutral tones create a palette for brightening up a space and adding visual interest to your home decor. Having furniture and upholstery items in these subdued tones lets your decoration pieces and home features stand out without making a room feel cluttered. Here a few reasons to choose neutral upholstery for your living space.
Why Neutrals Are the Way to Go
Neutral hues are compatible with any style. Whether your home is modern or rustic, beige, brown, gray, and white upholstery matches any color of wallpaper, accent pillows, or wall art. A neutral base can support both eclectic styles and clean looks, and if you ever put your home up for sale, buyers are more likely to project their own ideas and vision onto neutral color schemes.
Some colors trend on one year, then fall out of fashion over time, leaving you with furnishings you no longer want. Neutrals, however, stand the test of time and stay relevant no matter how trends change. If you’d like to incorporate trends into your home decor, simply update your accessories, such as throw pillows and rugs.
3. Natural Highlighter
Exciting features and textures in your rooms stand out against a neutral backdrop. Pairing bold home decor with vibrant tones can make a space feel cramped or overwhelming, but neutral upholstery provides a blank canvas that allows your standout pieces to shine. Subdued furniture items even highlight architectural components like exposed wooden beams, hardwood floors, and tile mosaics.
