home office

Now, more than ever, working from home has become an important part of our daily lives. We’ve become accustomed to sitting on the sofa hunched over a laptop in the middle of a Zoom call that could have been an email… “You’re on mute! Can you hear me now? Oh, we’ve lost you.”

Sound familiar? All of this takes a toll on our bodies, minds and productivity.

The unavoidable necessity to work from home was a shock to the system for many of us, and with fewer of us returning to the workplace, many employers have embraced the functionality of working from home. So, now is the time to invest in yourself and compartmentalise the space you have to keep your work life and home life separate, as it should be! Create your perfect home office to help you get into the work mindset and break away from merging the space meant for enjoying time with your family and relaxing. Your body will thank you for it.

Accent colours are colours that contrast the dominant scheme in a room. They are used to add impact and personality to a space and can be vibrant, bold, natural, dark or vivid. There are many different ways to use accent colours to create drama in your home. Here we explain the best ways to use accent colours to create an eye-catching feature in your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom or lounge.

How to use accent colours

The primary accent colour should be used sparingly to achieve a stylish interior. As a guide, we recommend around 3 or 5 times in a single room. Using too much can be overkill and cause the space to look dark or cluttered. Using small quantities will help draw your eyes around the space. To create continuity and flow, you may wish to use the same accent colour throughout the whole house.

The dominant colour should cover approximately 60% of the room and the secondary colour around 30%. Accent colours should make up the final 10%. When used effectively, accent colours can highlight architectural details such as coving, skirtings, architrave, picture and dado rails, bannisters and trims.

What accent colour should I use?

Deciding which accent colour to use is largely personal preference, but having a good understanding of colour theory will prevent potential disasters. For a more subtle look, you can choose a colour that is in the same family as the predominant wall colour e.g. a couple of shades lighter or darker. Or, for something a bit more striking a complimentary colour (opposite colour on the colour wheel) will look great. If you want to keep it simple you could introduce a neutral colour such as white or grey. You can also play with textures such as wood or metallics.

Introducing an accent colour is a cost effective way of giving your home a new lease of life. Small changes can make a big impact and completely transform the look and feel of a tired space. If we’ve inspired you to try an accent colour in your property, we encourage you to pop into our Weymouth tile, kitchen and bathroom showroom to take a look at our product range.
