5 mistakes to avoid when combining colors

Find out what the most common mistakes are when selecting a range of colors for decorating environments when applying microcement to surfaces.


8-9 minutes time reading

When choosing microcement we are presented with a wide range of colors, for which we have to be careful to avoid making mistakes when choosing color combinations that do not harmonize in the space used.

The factors to take into account when choosing colors for an environment range from lighting, the size of the room and the separation that we want to give to the environments. For this reason, we want to give you a guide to avoid making mistakes that can cause a non-harmonious and heavy finish.

The most used colors are the range of greys, whites, beige and sand. Generally these are the colors that provide more light, expand the spaces and go hand in hand with the new trends in interior decoration.

Next we name you 5 mistakes to avoid when combining microcement colors:

1- Do not delimit the spaces

Inside the home there are spaces such as the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms where we cannot abuse intense colors because we will spend a lot of time in these spaces and these colors tend to be exhausting. On the other hand, the areas of the home where we spend less time will let us play with a more varied spectrum of tones and color mixtures.

2- Match more than three colors

If we unite three colors in the same environment, the result will not be harmonious and if we unite four or more colors in the same space, this could be confusing to the eye, which ends up being exhausting. The best option is always to stay within the same color range, an example could be from snow white to cream white.

3- Exceed the contrasts

The use of strong color tones is linked to the attraction of looks and the desire to enhance a space. Due to this we cannot abuse the number of strong tones in the same space of the home because it will result in an exhausting, overwhelming and disturbing environment. The best option is to use strong tones to enhance one wall and leave the rest of the environment with softer and more neutral tones.

4- Outshine the original decor

We cannot forget that the home already has a range of colors present that range from the tone of the doors, the color of the floor and the windows. If we start a new composition of colors without taking into account the tones already present in the home, we could affect the final result. What we recommend is to start a project taking as reference the already existing elements to achieve balance and harmony.

5- Focus only on the walls

When decorating and choosing colors, we must take into account every aspect of the environment to achieve the best possible result. We can create contrasts taking into account the furniture, baseboards, cushions, carpets, among others.

To conclude, we can summarize that before embarking on a new project to renovate an environment, we must analyze how much light it has, the amplitude, the tones already present in the home and the style we want to achieve. For whatever you intend to do, we are sure that there is a color of our microcement that will be perfect for you.
