3 Reasons to Install Colorful Drapes June 14, 2019

3 Reasons to Install Colorful Drapes, Kauai County, Hawaii

When it comes to interior design, finding the perfect balance between avoiding plain neutral and overwhelming bold is tough. The way to success involves adding pops of color among a neutral background. Adding a bold hue with your drapes is a smart touch that also offers a few benefits.

3 Benefits of Vibrant Drapes

1. Define the Space

Open floor plans are popular, but the space still needs to be defined into smaller areas or the design can feel scattered. Your drapes can handle this task. For example, decorate the living area with one color and a different one for the kitchen and dining area. You can even use the drapery to physically separate areas and create some privacy rather than placing them over the windows.

2.  Create the Desired Mood

drapesA pop of color instantly adds character to a room, and the color you choose may impact the way people feel while in that room. Reds and oranges are colors filled with energy, which make them a wonderful choice for entertaining areas such as the living and dining room. Blues and greens evoke relaxation, which makes them ideal for bedrooms and bathrooms.

3. Tie It Together

To select a balanced color scheme for a room, follow the 60-30-10 rule. 60% of the space, usually the larger elements like the walls, flooring, and furniture, should be the leading color. 30% should be the main accent color, which includes drapery, lampshades, and artwork. The last 10% of the space should be a less prominent accent color, which may appear on small items like throw pillows. Bold drapes tie the room’s design together with an accent color—match it to your favorite piece of art or statement rug.
