Having an open floor plan makes your home look spacious, eliminating the partition walls that traditionally create rooms. This type of design creates an inviting space, great for larger social gatherings. It can make your home feel larger, and flow better. However, with so much space to decorate, it can be tricky to create a cohesive, yet unique look for the space. Deciding how to paint it can be one of the greatest challenges. We’ve put together some tips to help you!
Stick to a Color Pallette
With an open floor plan, some homeowners choose to stick with a monochromatic color scheme, using several different shades of one color. However, using a palette of 3-5 colors can mix it up, differentiating the separate rooms and their functions. Try using one white or light color, a neutral, and a few bolder colors to add a touch of personality. The bolder colors should be the same level of brightness to keep to a cohesive look.
If you don’t want to use too many colors in your home, choosing a neutral as a staple, and then creating an accent wall is another great choice. Choose one wall that you want to highlight with a bolder, brighter color. It could be the wall in your living room with the fireplace, or in the kitchen behind the counters. Whichever wall you decide on will become the center of attention when people enter your home!
Consider the Small Details
Although the walls are the largest area to cover when you’re painting and decorating, there are many other details to consider. Even if you’re going to stick with one color or a neutral theme throughout the space, you can add a pop of color or accent by highlighting an archway, trim, etc. This is a great way to tie the open floor plan together. You can even use a bold color for the ceiling to add an interesting look.
