WHAT IS COLOR THEORY?
Have you ever wondered how interior designers get all the colors to harmonize for their interior decor? Their secret is that they use color theory to find the shades that work best together. To understand the reason why we work in a certain way with colors it is important to understand the science and art of color, which starts with the color wheel, created by Sir Isaac Newton.
Watch this video for a short explanation of color theory.
DECIDE YOUR HOME COLOR PALETTE
Whether you are thinking about purchasing a lift and don’t know how to make it fit in with the rest of your style, or if you are starting from scratch and would like to decorate the room around the lift, making the right color choice for your taste is essential.
To begin, start by thinking of the hues currently present in your home, and think about what type of color scheme you are following. Are you able to identify color patterns? If you are starting from scratch, think about the shades you would like to see in your space, and if you would like your lift to be the centerpiece, or for it to play a more neutral role.
Color schemes are just a general way of helping you decide which colors go well together, and by knowing your colour scheme, you’ll be able to identify the lift color options that suit your space the best. In the rest of this blog, we will be telling you about different color schemes that you can use to find the ideal color match.
TEST YOUR COLOR CHOICE WITH OUR LIFT CONFIGURATOR
When purchasing a Cibes lift, there are many color choices to make. You can customize colors and materials of the shaft, doors, roof, walls, floors, handlebars, and more. Therefore, the best way to see whether you’re making the right colour choice is to build your lift and play around with the endless possibilities in our lift configurator.
MONOCHROMATIC SCHEME – CONSERVATIVE AND SUBTLE
A monochromatic palette is one of the easiest color harmonies to apply, and it’s the ideal one for you if you want to have a cohesive and organized interior where your lift plays a neutral role. A monochromatic home will have elements in different shades, tones, and tints of the same color.
Tip: If this is the color scheme that best appeals to you, narrow down your options by only looking at colors that are different shades of your dominant color. If for instance, your overall theme is different shades of blue, you should be choosing a blue shade from our RAL color options or Premium color guide.
ANALOGOUS SCHEME – VERSATILE AND BRIGHT
An analogous color palette uses 2-4 colors that are next to each other in the color wheel. That could be for example: green, orange, and yellow or pink, blue, and purple. This color combination is versatile but can become overwhelming to the eye. To balance out an analogous color scheme, you should choose one main dominant color and use the rest as accents.
Tip: If you identify with an Analogous color scheme, balance it out by choosing a lift in one of your accent colors. If you would like to keep it bold, choose a lift color in your dominant shade.
COMPLEMENTARY COLOR SCHEME – CONTRASTING AND DRAMATIC
A complementary color scheme uses colors that are opposite to create a bold, and high-impact effect. It’s a great way to combine different types of warm and cold colors. Color schemes like: Yellow and black, purple and green, green and pink are considered complementary color schemes.
Tip: If you would like your lift to become an accent piece, a complementary scheme brings boldness and high impact. Make sure to choose a color that is opposite from your dominant color or combine opposite colors for the lift.
A SOLUTION FOR ALL
If you can’t identify your style with the color harmony schemes, think of using an adaptative color that matches everything. Black and white don’t have to be simple; we recommend Gothic Graphite Black and Oriental Oyster White from our premium color selection, which are two elegant and timeless shades that match any color present in your home.
Though it may seem like a lot of information, choosing a color for your lift should be an amazing experience, and that’s why we want to offer you as many options to find the perfect match for your specific taste.
Be sure to use color harmony to pick a lift color that enhances your interior and harmonizes all the elements that are already present. It’s important to note that color choice is about your perspective, preference, and style, and we would like to think there is no right or wrong way of choosing the right color as long as you are happy with your choice.
