Skirting color is tightly connected with the interior lighting conditions. If it’s bright inside the room, any color of skirting is ok and that does not matter much. But if it’s dark inside, you’d better choose skirting with bright colors which will lighten the room to some degree; otherwise, the whole room will be enveloped with dark atmosphere.

In small rooms, warm colors bring depressing feeling while in large and wide rooms, cold colors make you feel void. Therefore we need to make a selection according to the practical conditions of our room. For small room, choose cold colors like white; for large room, choose warm colors like earthy yellow.

Another criteria for choosing skirting color is to select the same colors as door frame. No matter what the color is, as long as skirting color is the same to door frame color, the whole room will appear harmonious. And if you don’t want them to use the same color, then choose the similar ones. Remember, never try the different colors because that will make your room look weird.

No. 4 Consideration of furniture colors
