Using colour blocks

Colour-blocking patterns and design may have begun on the catwalk, but this trend doesn’t just belong to the world of fashion. Interior designers are quickly adopting this trend to produce statement colour possibilities in the home. The beauty of the colour-blocking trend is that it allows you to create truly distinct spaces.

If you’re thinking about bringing colour-blocking design into the home, the key thing to remember is that there is no right or wrong approach. To make a bold statement, opt for bright, contrasting shades to create impact. This can create a focal point in a room, and when designed strategically, you can use it to draw attention away from less desirable areas.

Alternatively, a more subtle approach would be to go for smooth and delicate hues for a calming vibe. After all, the bedroom is your personal space and should be a place for tranquillity.

You don’t have to just rely on a lick of paint to achieve this look. Panelled sliding wardrobe doors allow you to colour-block by using a mix and match of colours. Not only will you create an individual style by using varying textures in the doors panels, but this technique injects colour and depth to a plain bedroom. For example, take a three panel door design, with a subtle white finish and add a pop of colour such as the Duck Egg Blue panel from our Deluxe Shaker collection, prices start from just £697.20!
