Tips for choosing the right color

First, you need to narrow the scope according to the appearance color of your home and personal taste. The following tips are designed to help you choose the perfect tone. you can choose to design it as you like!

Do not select the exact match

Many people say that if you do not know how to match the color. Then you can choose the same color. This phrase is more widely applied, but you should not apply it to your deck.

Using the same color as the outside of your home as your deck will look a little boring. You should try to choose complementary colors instead of matching. Such as dark and light colors form a sharp contrast and bring a sense of hierarchy to your house. This design is never out of date.

When planning your floor and wall panel design, consider how to create interesting contrasts. If your exterior wall is very colorful, such as the blue wall above, any neutral color floor can be used. On the other hand, if your walls are light-medium colors, such as taupe or beige, the rich reddish-brown deck is a good supplement.

Pay attention to the background color

Unless you use pure white or pitch black, you should pay attention to the background color. COOWIN’s art color series design is our unique color mixing technology, which has dark color lines on the basis of light color background.

You may remember that in the color wheel learned in school, red, orange, and yellow are warm colors, while green, blue and purple are cold colors. Although you don’t have to keep all the background colors exactly the same, it is recommended that you keep the deck and home appearance warm or cold.

Therefore, if the appearance of your home is gray with a blue background. You may need to choose a decorative panel with a similar cold green, blue or purple background. Of course, if your home is pure white, then these rules are a little outdated – you can do whatever you want!

Create process
