Neutral hues are the new ‘trendy’ because they have an inherently timeless quality that can make any home interior look positively stunning. However, many homeowners feel like they need something extra to make a neutral theme positively shine. So today, we’ve compiled a list of 5 amazing tips on how you can create a show-stopping home interior with neutral colors.
1. Add a vista
Here’s the thing; too many neutral colors can and will make your space look boring and monotonous. However, there’s a way you can break out of it – all you need is some urban contrast. So if you have a window portal, you need to ensure that the view from the outside acts as a nice visual contrast to your neutral theme. It can be a tree lined street, or the massive urban skyline of Singapore apartments – anything can work.
2. Add glamour with lighting
Nothing can top off a nice, neural themed interior design like a perfect dose of glamorous lighting. Without it, your color scheme is going to end up looking understated if not completely boring. Take a look at this image; the use of different types of artificial lighting is an amazing way to add a glamorous appeal to the entire neutral themed interior design.
3. Light and dark contrast
In order to create a truly show-stopping neutral themed interior design, you need to make sure that you introduce a subtle light and dark contrast within the space. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the in-built decorative shelves are darker than the other neutral colors, while the furniture is definitely lighter. This helps create visual interest within the space, which ultimately amplifies the whole design.
4. Sharpen with smooth textures
The neutral color scheme is translated best through smooth textures. Rough and tactile textures tend to make the whole look seem rustic and timeworn, which is why it’s always best that you opt for smooth modern style materials like laminates. Either matt or gloss, the smooth surface adds a stunning, up to the minute aura to the whole design.
5. Plush furniture complete the look
You can add a plush, luxurious vibe to your neutral themed interior design with the help of sumptuous furniture. If you look at this image, you’ll notice how the sumptuous leather couch and the posh dining table set add to the show-stopping quality of the whole living room. You can do the same with your own interior designs.
