The Colour Scheme for your Loft Conversion

When your loft conversion is newly plastered, fresh and clean, it’s often difficult to know what the best loft conversion ideas are and what colour schemes to choose to bring it to life. However, with a few simple thought processes, you can pick the right colour scheme for your needs.

When choosing a colour scheme, why not bear the following factors in mind?

1. Match the Colours to the Loft Room’s

UseThis is probably the biggest consideration when choosing your new loft conversion’s colour scheme. Some room types make choosing a colour scheme easier than others.

For example, a children’s playroom will work well when decorated in bright, bold colours. Primary colour schemes are ideal for playrooms, although if you want to tone the overall look down, opt for a feature wall of one colour, or a mural design on one wall, and then keep the remaining walls neutral.

Similarly, if you’re looking to create a home office, then choose colours which will aid productivity. For example, luxurious dark greens, browns and golds are often associated with home offices, but if these don’t float your boat, why not opt for minimal and clean whites, and then accessorise with calming purples and greys?

2. Choose a Colour Scheme to Suit your Style

Your personal style is an important aspect to take into account when choosing the best colour scheme for your new room. For example, if the overall look and feel of your home and your personal style preference

is slightly rustic, then there’s no point in going for all out bling and plush colours. Instead, choose French style greys, or neutral tones such as fawns or off whites.

3. Opt for a Minimum of Colours

This is particularly good advice for loft conversions. Their often sloping roofs mean that if you choose too many colours, you may make the room feel smaller than it is. As a general rule, when it comes to interior design, less is more. 

Focus on one main colour, or have one focal wall and a neutral colour alongside it, and then add accents as you see fit. These accents can be added in the form of soft furnishings, ornaments and wall decoration or even furniture!

4. Match your Colour Scheme to the Mood of the Room

The mood you wish to create within the room is important to your colour scheme. Having a garish colour scheme in a bedroom, for example, wouldn’t give the relaxing, tranquil experience that we all need to be able to get a good night’s sleep.

Similarly, a very plain and boring children’s playroom is never going to inspire imaginative play, so don’t be afraid to mix it up!
