2. That bright colour might look great in a tiny swatch but garish on an entire wall. Use a free colour visualising tool to help you visualise how the wall would look in your chosen colour, before you spend money on the paints.

3. If you choose a bright colour, consider confining it to a single wall with neutral colours, on the rest of the walls to balance the look. Light colours make a room look larger while dark colours make a room cozier.

4. To make the ceiling look higher, try a very pale colour or white to make it recede. You could try painting the ceiling sky blue so it looks like you are looking up to the never ending sky when you look up towards the ceiling.

5. Wood gives the room a warmer, homelier, back to nature feel. A room with wooden wallpaper, wood floors, and ceiling, lit with warm lights gives you a comforting, cosy atmosphere.

6. Get your basic colour scheme right first. The colour of the floor, walls and ceiling should all complement one another. You could use the exact same colour on the walls and ceiling for an unbroken, harmonious look in a room, to form the background before you add the furnishings or furniture.

7. To use, choose the colour or wallpaper for the wall. Next, choose the floor colour. Then choose the ceiling colour. Finally pick the furnishings. These are compared against the wall colour or the floor colour.

8. Dark colours are easier to maintain as dirt does not show up so easily. Consider black colour for sofa sets, tables and other heavily used furniture, especially if you have little kids or pets in your home.
