Tips for Designing A Monochromatic SpaceColby Morrell
We can’t deny the power of a monochromatic room. They can be bold, luxurious, and adventurous. The idea of creating a monochromatic space is alluring because of the intentional impact it can have, but the thought of actually executing the look is intimidating for most! We don’t blame you! Where do you start? How do yo keep the space from falling flat? How much color should you use? If you’re considering the monochromatic look, read on to help guide you through the process.
The very first thing to keep in mind is texture. Texture is important to any space, but it’s really the glue that holds a monochromatic room together. Because you will be working with a single color palette, attention to materials is key. Variation in textures will keep the room from falling flat.
Starting with a small room can be much less scary. A bathroom is the perfect space to go mono! A bathroom’s features and dimensions make it ideal and easy to carry out a monochromatic scheme. A single color is also calming – the perfect feeling for a bathroom.
Pay attention to details! When you make the commitment to stick with one color, what you put into the room becomes so much more important. When choosing furniture or finishes think about scale and proportion. Adding personality to a monochromatic space requires honing in on the smallest details, even the drink coasters you choose to use!
Remain neutral. You don’t have to stick with the same shade of color throughout the design process. Be sure to incorporate various shades of the same color. Don’t be afraid to add a contrasting hue, such as white or other neutrals to complement your primary color. This will add depth to the space and further keep it from looking boring.
