OKC Realtors Share Tips For Aesthetically Pleasing Wall Colors
If you have light colored wood trim or finishes throughout your home this can be a good thing as it can bring forth a warmth due to the yellow to brown undertones. Your next dilemma, as a homeowner, may be which wall colors to choose which will complement the wood. Today, our OKC realtors are sharing a few things to consider when choosing your surrounding color palette.
First, you have to decide whether or not you want to draw the eye directly to the beauty of your wood trim, doors, or other finishes or if you would like to have it blend into the rest of the room. Based on our OKC realtors’ research, here are 3 different design choices and colors to use to achieve each look:
To Highlight The Wood: If you would like the light wood color to “pop out” stick to colors that are opposite of the wood’s natural hues. Likewise, a nice neutral gray color will allow your light colored wood trim to be the center of attention. If you want them to blend in choose a wall color that is close to the undertones of the wood such as yellow, orange, or a brown color.
To Have An Earthy Look: If you’re aiming to make your space feel earthy, go for darker greens or olive tones that provide a more natural element to complement your light wood.
To Keep Things Simplistic: If you are thinking of keeping things a bit more crisp and would like to stick to white walls then consider that the warm undertones of the light wood trim may make your white space look a little too bare. Instead, opt for an off-white color that’s more creamy than stark white as this will enhance the look of the light colored wood a bit more.
These are just a few simple tips our OKC realtors wanted to share. As always, if you’re looking for OKC realtors to help you with buying or selling a home, we would be happy to help you. Contact Metro First Realty at 405-242-4004!
