Mastering Neutral Tones in 5 Easy Steps

In 2020, the paint colors that can increase your home’s value by up to $6,000 are black, charcoal, taupe, and other neutral tones. 

Neutral tones are incredibly popular because they make interior design more fluid, stylish, and cohesive. 

If you’re ready to go neutral, the first thing you’ll want to do is work with a top-notch professional Milton painting company. The second step is to determine what your personal style is and how you can master neutral tones in your own space.

Read on for 5 tips to master neutral tones and bring new life to your home.

1. Take a Look at Your Current Space

Neutral tones come in a variety of colors and shades. Everything from white to tan to dark brown, grey, and black are considered neutral tones. In fact, if it’s not identifiable on the color wheel but can be found in nature, it’s probably a neutral tone.

When deciding on the neutral tones you want, take a look at your home and the furniture you already have or plan to purchase. Pick neutral tones that will compliment your decor. Do you want an all-neutral room or do you want your decor to pop against a contrasting color?

2. Think About Natural Light

Natural light has been psychologically linked to relaxation, lowered blood pressure, and peacefulness. If your home gets flooded with sunlight every day, your paint color won’t make too much of a difference in the effect.

However, if you don’t get a ton of natural light, consider how paint colors may drown out your natural light. Darker colors in a dim room may create a darker overall appearance, whereas light neutral tones will accentuate any light you get.

3. Decide on Any Accent Walls to Complement Neutral Tones

Neutral tones create a nice clean slate for any accent colors you enjoy. You can even make one of your walls pop with an accent color! If you choose to paint an accent wall in a bright or bold color, consider how big it is, how much attention you want it to generate, and what you plan to hang on it. 

4. Hire Your Painters

Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, it’s time to hire your professional painters. No matter how good your taste and color choices are, a bad paint job can ruin the whole effect. Working with professional painters guarantees that you’ll have a smooth finish and that all of those tough angles are covered properly. 

5. Hone In on Your Interior Design Skills 

Once the paint is dry, it’s time to bring it all together in a masterful way. Neutral tones look great when contrasted with an opposite color. For example, if you’ve chosen to paint your walls black, white frames will look outstanding against that dark backdrop!
