Because of their placement, basements can be overlooked. But with a few touches here and there, you can remodel your basement to a comfy and airy space making it one of the most functional and yet beautiful spaces in the house.
One way you can do basement finishing is by introducing color themes that fit your style and space. To do that you have to choose a color palette that is:
- Neutral with a bit of twist
- Colors that pair well with your décor
- Colors that go with the chosen mood for example kids’ playroom could use bright colors.
With these in mind here are some colors for your next basement remodel.
White is a clean and sleek neutral color that brightens spaces. You can emphasize this color by incorporating white accessories and furnishings. Alternatively, you can use variations of white such as magnolia, it helps mimic the look of natural white.
For a shade that says minimal but creates a calming effect, consider gray color. You can always pair it will neutral furniture and bright fabrics for a classic look.
Not many people will consider or even think of black in the homes, but dark colors can deliver amazing results when paired well. For example, you can mix black with rustic accessories and gold for a rich look. But remember to include light fixtures that can make the dark colors glow.
- Sky blue
Sky blue is pleasing to look at, it is calm and this makes it ideal for creating a warm and cozy living room.
Red is an unexpected color in the basement. For entertainment purposes such a theatre, a game room, and other fun-loving spaces. You can use red on an accent wall to infuse more energy into an otherwise dull space.
When remodeling your basement into a workspace or office, purple is a great option because it is usually associated with creativity. For a more sophisticated and elegant look you can go for a deep plum shade but for a playful yet soothing look go for lavender.
There are so many colors to choose from when doing basement finishing and you may need to hire a professional to help you out if you want to end up with a beautiful space.
