Selecting Colours for your Calgary Custom Home
Choosing a colour scheme for your custom home can be scary. Some homeowners worry that their homes will look boring and some others don’t know where to start. When it comes to colours, it all depends on style and design. As professional home builders, we suggest a couple of online platforms that can help organize ideas with pictures of patterns such as Houzz or Pinterest.
Also, there are other resources, such as Benjamin Moore’s website in which you can check colour schemes for each room in your home. When you are selecting colours, we also suggest considering the amount of light each room will have, and the effect you want to create in every room. If you are selecting colours for an open concept or open space, you can choose the main colour and add details with shades or tints in smaller areas.
Always remember to test your potential palette, on interiors and exteriors, and make sure to check how the colours look during the day and night. If you feel lost about your home's colours, you can always ask your Calgary home builder. They will be able to guide you accordingly to your style and wishlist. Also, they can point you to an interior designer that can help you achieve the right look for your new custom home.
