5 Colours To Avoid When Painting Your Condo

When you pick up the colour palette in your hands, look at the walls of your condo and try to decide which of these colours would bring them to life. Your mind is going through a myriad of possibilities. Some of the colour combinations and ideas that you come up with are surely going to create a perfect home environment for yourself and your family. But a wrong turn around the colour wheel can make the same condo look dreadful, unappealing and repulsive. While there are some colours that work all the time to paint any type of condo, there are also some other colours or colour combinations that should better be avoided. Here are come of the colours or their combinations that you should avoid when painting your condo in Singapore.

5 Colours To Avoid When Painting Your Condo


• Sunset Yellow – If you are living in a warm and humid climate region such as Singapore, then your weather is always hot and you do not have any further need to express the warmth through the colour of your walls. Any shade of yellow, specifically sunset yellow, gives a feeling of warmth which is great for colder places such as Canada. But in already hot environments, it should better be avoided.

Crimson Red – The crimson red (or any other shades of dark red) colored walls radiate more heat than the walls of any other colour. This is again not desirable in hot and humid weather of Singapore. If you want to paint your condo walls crimson red, then you should limit it to just one wall and paint all the other walls in neutral tones or even white colour. This combination will take away the saturation of the crimson red and balance it out with neutral toned colours.

Peacock Green – It rains most of the time in Singapore, and the rains create a nice environment for the flying insects to breed. The peacock green colored walls act like a magnet for these insects. If you do not want to be surprised by these tiny critters in your condo, then it is better to avoid peacock green or any other shade of turquoise green colour.

Pitch Black – Although the raven black or pitch black colour is often used extensively in the traditional Asian designs, it absorbs the ambient light in your rooms. You should try to avoid it. But if you really have to use it, then combine it with lighter shades of grey. It also mixes well with lighter colored furnishings and curtains. You can also create a dramatic appearance by using a combination of small amounts of pitch black, crimson red and some other neutral tones.

White –  Asia is exact opposite of the western countries when it comes to the white colour. While in the western countries, white symbolizes holiness, sanctities and piety, in the Asian countries, white is regarded as the colour of mourning, death and sadness. You should avoid painting all your walls white. But white can be used for painting the ceilings of your house, provided you use brighter and happier colours for the walls.

Your home is a reflection of your personality. In fact, it is your second persona – it does not matter whether it is a brand new home or an old house that was built hundreds of years ago. The colours you choose to paint your walls should have a signature of your style and attitude towards life. This is why you should always begin by picking up your favourite colours from the colour palette.

Most people tend to have preferred colour combinations or a single favourite colour, and that should be used as the basis to draw your palette from. But it is always better to seek professional advice or help before you finalize your decision. You can contact a good interior designer who would not only consider the colours of your walls, but the design of the house as a whole – including the colour of the walls, the lighting, the placement of the furniture in the rooms, the vacant space and the texture of the walls colour. Moreover, a good interior designer can also look into your lifestyle and pursue the matching of the wall colours from that angle.
