How to use colours to change the atmosphere and the size of a room
Knowing which colours work best for a space is key to creating the right atmosphere. Using very dark colours in a small place, without any natural light, could create an overbearing or cramped feeling. However, the same colours in a space with a similar dimension that has plentiful lighting would create a real sense of intimacy and cosiness. There is no "one size fits all" rule when designing with colours. There are so many options to choose from. You can have matching colours on both the walls and ceilings or you can choose to mix and match darker tones or bright colours.
For instance, if you are designing a studio, you might want to pick colours that will inspire creativity every morning. On the other hand, if you are working with a small space, it could be preferable to choose a lighter hue, maximising the area and giving a small room a substantial feel.
What about large rooms? In big rooms, you have more freedom to play with colours. You might want to choose colours that will make other design elements in the space pop.
Asymmetrical rooms can be united using white tiles like our Rockfon Blanka® or Rockfon Mono Acoustic ceiling solutions. Choosing a matt-white ceiling can bring an extra benefit to your room because of its natural light diffusion and light reflection properties. Proper lighting enhances a space's style, changes its atmosphere and feeling, brightening the mood.
In love with contrast or mixing and matching? Having a darker colour on your ceiling will add a bold and industrial atmosphere to your space. It's perfect for creating an exclusive cocktail bar or a particular area in a restaurant. Black acoustic ceiling tiles are a great addition to a vibrant dance floor or a small theatre, where white tiles could be that missing piece for a relaxing yoga classroom, and grey tiles might be that ideal finish for that modern working space.
The possibilities are endless. You decide how to bring your modern interior design to life using beautiful ceiling and coloured acoustic tiles and panels.
