How to Match Your Window Blinds with Paint

Matching your window blinds with the correct paint is extremely important when designing the feng shui of your home.

However, while meeting the variety and fundamental demand of modern home designs, there are a lot of areas where you could easily choose the right (and wrong) color combinations. Take a look at how you can best complement your window blinds and give your home the prominent features it deserves.

PURCHASING YOUR WINDOW BLINDS

Depending on the style you choose, your blinds can play a major role in establishing the characteristics of your home. As Mary of Window Fashions of Texas explains:

“It’s important for you to experience the quality of the products you’re buying for your home. That’s why we have a huge showroom where you can see all the products, and colors in person.“

Later explaining that whether it be wood, vinyl, aluminum, or a soft shade, the blinds of your home should give your window a sort of harmonious treatment, allowing the most natural sunlight in during the day, but optimal privacy at night.

CHOOSING YOUR BASE COLOR

With the vast variety of colors available to meet consumer demand, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of colors to the point where you don’t even know where to begin; not to mention finding a color that ties in with your blinds.

Here’s a good starting point as certain colors are usually associated with certain ‘moods’:

    • Red: passion, energy, increases appetite
    • Orange: joyous, social, active
    • Yellow: optimistic, cheerful, focused
    • Green: rejuvenating, healing, good health
    • Blue: serenity, calm, peacefulness
    • Purple: creativity, problem solving, sophistication
    • Pink: kindness, romance, lowers stress

Consider choosing a color that best fits your personality or the mood for which you would like to portray around your home. Afterwards, make sure the color compliments the color and/or texture of your blinds. Next, it’s time to find a good color combination.

WHEN TO (AND WHEN NOT TO) MATCH THE TRIM

Now’s the time to decide whether you want your window blinds to really stand out or just intermingle into the wall of colors. For instance, if your blinds are the same color as your trim, they’re going to blend in placing them as a quiet feature across your house.

However, if the blinds do not match the trim, they tend to pop and really stand out throughout the room especially if you’re using bold colors for the walls. The best part is that there are so many color combinations out there, it’s not difficult matching to exactly what you’re looking for!

POPULAR COLOR PALETTE COMBINATIONS

Once you’ve decided to paint your home and have read through our 6 tips to remember when repainting your home blog post, find a good color to base around your blinds, it’s time to look at shades of that color. Once you decide whether you want your blinds to ‘pop or not’, take a look at color combinations and remember to never do more than 3 separate colors. If you would like some great examples, take a look at our Paint Gallery.

Feel free to use the color wheel as the shades that are right next to each other tend to mix very nicely giving your home a warm, relaxing feeling to it. Also, the 60-30-10 rule is always a good idea. Basically this means when you’re painting/decorating a room, using 60% of a dominant color (the walls), 30% going to upholstery (furniture, blinds, etc), and the remaining 10% towards your home’s accessories.

When all’s said and done, your home will have a nice feng shui to it, with accompanying paint colors and blinds that all visitors will love!
