Living Room Color Scheme Options
How Will The Colors You Choose Affect Your Space?
Considering redoing your living room? Or have you just moved somewhere and need to think about what kind of space you want?
Nassau Furniture is a Long Island furniture store and trust us, we know furniture.
Of course, these aren’t the only color schemes available by any means! There are hundreds, thousands of color options for you to choose from. Here a few of the most popular ones for you to consider today.
Neutrals: White, Black, and Grey
Want to feel sharp, modern, and sleek? Minimal and chic? Then you’re good to go with furniture in all shades of black, white, and grey. It’s hard to go “wrong” with these. If you are worried your home will feel too machine-like you can always pair with some nice wood furniture -- another neutral that can work well.
This is great for those who don’t want to think too much about their furniture layout but want it to look good and, well, a bit professional.
Pink, White, Metallic
Looking for a lux, feminine, posh feel in your space? Want your rooms to feel modern, Instagrammable, put-together, clean? Choose a metallic color -- we recommend rose gold or gold -- and go with pink and white furniture elements.
This also looks great with lots of polish and shine in the room, so feel free to add touches of glass, marble, and plenty of mirrors!
Red is a great color for living rooms if done well. A room with a red wall, a red couch, red art or red accents can feel intimate, lively,
Red doesn’t tend to make rooms feel bigger, and depending on how you use the color it could make your room feel smaller.
This is a great color choice if: your space feels too stale and lifeless or awkwardly large. Big pops of red can lead the eye, so be careful and intentional about what you want to do with it.
Opting for a blue-focused room gives you more small design decisions to make than you may think. What shade of blue are you interested in? There are just so many.
Choosing your hue or shade of blue affects the rest of your furniture options, but plenty of colors look great with blue. You can get a grey, beige, white couch without it taking away from your color scheme. We recommend a nice blue couch!
Dark blue and white together can sometimes come across austere (like old fashioned china). Blue as a color is associated with the mind, communicating, thinking, and it can feel more serious than other colors -- but lighter shades can feel youthful, free, and exciting!
Whimsical and Colorful
If you want to have a whimsical, fun, freewheeling space, filled with pops of color and lots of little knick-knacks and exciting pieces, you might want to stick with a few neutral colors. Your pops of color need something to pop out from!
If you don’t want to commit to an orange, red, or green couch then consider buying more neutral furniture and using art, cushions, pillows, etc to make it more fun and engaging. You clearly like to have a good time, so don’t stress this one!
