How to Find the Perfect Color Scheme

Finding a Color Scheme for Your Furniture 

Crafting a color scheme in your home is more than paint color. Whether your living room color palette evolves as you go or you plan your whole house at once, each room as a color scheme. Your furniture needs to work within this scheme.

However, choosing the right colors isnt always easy. Thats why Exclusive Furniture is here with helpful tips to determine your color palette. 


Couple Finding Perfect Color Scheme for their Furniture

How Do I Choose a Color Palette for My House? 

Are you ready to begin planning the palette of your house? The basics of color theory can help your scheme emerge in no time. Your color palette has the power to set the mood for a room. Moreover, it has the potential to evoke emotion when people spend time in it.

Color can make rooms feel warmer, cooler, smaller, and larger. The right color combinations have the power to create balance, emphasis, harmony, and unity. 

The Temperature of Your Color Scheme 

Warm and cool colors are an important aspect of color theory. Warm colors range from yellow to red and often include browns. On the other hand, cool colors range from blue-green to blue-violet and typically include grays. For art and design, warm colors appear more active as cool colors recede. 

          Warm colors derive from the primary colors of yellow, red, and orange. Typically, they evoke a warm feeling like a campfire or a sunrise. 

          Cool colors derive from violet, green, and blue. They tend to evoke a cooler, earthy element like water or greenery. 



What Colors Are Warm And Inviting? 

          Red can bring warmth to any setting. Oftentimes, people utilize red on a seasonal basis when they want to evoke this sense of warmth. 

          Pink can be a bold statement piece in furniture, offering vigor to your color scheme while remaining inviting. 

          Gold is darker than a standard yellow, often feeling warm and inviting without an overwhelming sense of exuberance. 

          Peach is a combination of many warm colors that can be quite tasteful and inviting. 

          Brown is a neutral color that works well within a warm color scheme. This is especially true when you mix it with deeper warm colors. 

          Tangerine has more of a pumpkin tint in its purest form and is a lovely hue for autumn. 

          White is generally neutral. However, a creamy, warm white fosters a sense of coziness in the right situation. 



Examples of Cool Colors 

          Deep purple works well with warmer blues and can be an excellent option as an accent color. 

          Beige is often thought of as a neutral color, but a cool beige is a trendy version that uses a pink base. 

          Sage is a calm alternative to grey that evokes more emotion than white. This green-based color adds soothing feelings to a room. 

          Green is earthy and grounding, offering a fresh and lively feel that makes a color scheme bold yet natural. 

          Navy blue is timeless as a dark look, and it goes well with neutral accents. Mix it with a grey or deep purple for a color scheme that is all-cool with a lot of flair. 

          Light blue is a brighter cool color that can both enliven and calm a color scheme, depending on how you utilize it. 

          Grey is the definition of neutral. However, it complements cool colors quite well. 



The Three Basic Color Schemes 

When you use a three-color design scheme, an easy option is the rule of three” when you mix warm and cool colors. 

          60% of the components are a dominant color, typically applied to the walls.

          30% is a secondary color, usually utilized in your furniture, such as a living room set.

          10% is an accent color, such as an accent wall or your accessories in the room. 

Any color can be dominant in your color scheme. However, its important to choose something that you can live with. Three basic color schemes work well across the board. 

          Monochromatic color schemes have different shades of the same hue. 

          Analogous color schemes use three hues that neighbor each other, such as blue, green, and yellow. However, they do not necessarily need to be adjacent in the color wheel. 

          Complementary color schemes utilize opposite colors with one warm color and one cool color.

Pros & Cons to Bunk Beds

What Are the Pros and Cons of Bunkbeds? 

Are you thinking about buying a bunk bed for your children? Bunkbeds can be an excellent way to save space in small rooms and small homes with multiple children. While there are downsides to owning a bunk bed, many people find that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. 

The key is to find a bunk bed that saves space, feels safe, and allows your children to sleep comfortably. If you’re trying to decide whether these beds are for you, this list of the pros and cons can help you make your decision.

The Pros of Bunkbeds 

Separate Beds 

Two beds provide each child with their own space to sleep and relax. This fosters a sense of independence, helping them sleep better on their own in the future. Having a space of their own at the end of the day can also help children establish their own identities and personalities. 


More Space 

Children’s rooms are often smaller, and sometimes families with small children find themselves in a “starter home.” Bunkbeds allow you to use space more efficiently whereas opting for two single beds would detract from space for storage and play. The smaller, stacked bed frames offer more floor space for play as well as other kids’ furniture.


Planning Ahead 

More versatile bunk beds can be taken apart and become two single beds when your children grow. This is a great option to consider when you plan to move into a bigger home someday because it provides your family with a cost-effective and efficient opportunity.

Sleepover Fun

In the right arrangement, bunk beds can be an excellent option for sleepovers. Draping sheets from the sides can turn the room into a secretive fort with minimum fuss. 


Separate Lighting 

Clip-on lamps offer children with bunkbed the opportunity to stay up later than one another when they want to read without disturbing the person in the other bunk. 


Individualized Attention

Bunkbeds are also a great way to show individual care. For example, if one child gets sick, you don’t need to wake both of them up to attend to the situation. 


Added Storage 

Some models of bunk beds come with integrated storage spaces. There are also models that offer storage drawers beneath the bottom bunk. This is a great option for additional efficiency with space in the room. 


T
he Cons of Bunkbeds 


Child Safety 

One of the concerns we hear most often is that of child safety in bunk beds. These beds should mainly be considered for children older than age six with the lower bunk assigned to the younger child. There’s always a risk with the ladder on the bunk. However, some bunkbed models come equipped with safer ladders or even steps up to the top bunk.


Some Assembly Required 

Some bunk beds can be tricky to build, taking several hours to assemble. Should you choose to assemble the bed yourself, it is important to follow all instructions so that the furniture complies with safety standards. 


Making the Beds 

Unfortunately, making the beds is no easy feat. You don’t always have direct access to both sides, and you have to climb the ladder to reach the top bunk. However, using a fitted sheet tucked in at the foot of the bed can make this task much simpler. It’s also good to keep a step stool handy to make reaching the top bunk much easier. 


Tucking Your Child Into the Top Bunk 

Giving out goodnight hugs and kisses can be a challenge for your child in the top bunk. However, you’ll find that the aforementioned step stool will come in handy here as well. 



A Brief List of Safety Tips 

          Children under 6 should not sleep on the top bunk. 

          Use nightlights to illuminate ladders or steps. 

          Always use the proper size of the mattress. 

          Ensure the structure is sound and sturdy. 

          No horseplay on the beds.
