Wondering how to choose the right colours for solid surface and high pressure laminates? The colour choices you use can play a big role in the overall atmosphere of the room. Colour is important for branding and should be chosen carefully in the case of corporate design. But what about residential design projects? How do the colours you choose for solid surface and HPL affect the mood, look and personality of each room?
Colour Psychology for Solid Surface and HP Laminates
Colour psychology focuses on the way that colour affects people. Over the last few decades, interior designers and even psychologists have noticed that certain colours are associated with certain moods. That is why you will typically find soft pastel colours in a baby’s nursery and bolder, brighter colours in an older child’s room. You may find soothing green tones in a spa-like bathroom and classic neutral tones in an elegant dining room. When choosing solid surface, the colours that you use will affect not only the overall look of the room but also the way that people feel when they enter the room. Here are some questions to consider when choosing the colour of your solid surfacing and HPL.
What feeling would you like the colour to evoke?
In a kitchen, you may want to boost energy and appetite. In a bathroom, you may want a relaxing atmosphere. A master bedroom may be best for romantic and soft colours, while a home gym would be best suited to bright, energetic colours. Think carefully about the type of mood you are aiming for and let that be your guide for your colour choices.
How will the room be used?
Kitchens and bathrooms are straight-forward, but you may find that a covered patio is used for entertaining, relaxation and dining. Think about how you use the space, who uses the space on a daily basis, and what your overall intent is for the room. You can then choose your colours according to how you use the room.
How much natural light is available?
Lighting can also affect the way that colours are seen. Remember that surfaces may appear lighter, darker or brighter depending on the lighting in the room. It is best to think carefully about the lighting you have in your kitchen or bathroom and check the colour of your surfaces in both natural and artificial light to see how it looks.
