Practice of colour design

Table of Contents

Several contrasts are usually effective with colour combinations in the design of walls. The colour proportions in wall design should also be taken into account, as it is not irrelevant in which area sizes colours appear in the room. A distinction is made between dominant, subdominant and accentuating colour areas.

Colour areas

The dominance of colour, the quantitatively predominant colour, indicates the basic mood in the room. Dominant colour surfaces must be bearable for the eye. For example, the larger the wall surfaces, the more discreet the colour component of the colour must be.

The colour subdominate is the aesthetic accompanying colour and refers harmoniously to the dominant colour and serves for differentiation. Areas of the colour subdominates are considerably smaller than the dominant colour and may therefore have a higher proportion of colour. Colour accents stand out clearly from the dominant and subdominant colour areas and colour bodies. They should only be used in saturated small proportions and attract and direct attention. They have a signal effect and give visual impulses and are suitable for emphasising room elements, especially accessories.

Colour concept

For a balanced colour concept in the room, the following must be taken into account: The larger the area, the more restrained the colour message should be. The colour scheme in long-term rooms should be discreet and at the same time expressive, taking into account the personal imagination, creativity and freedom of the room user.

Colours in a room should not overwhelm people, but serve them. Colour should not excite them, but stimulate them.
