How Do I Choose My Room Divider Color?
Choosing the right color for your room divider can be quite challenging. You might feel like there are so many color choices you are sure to find at least one you like. Or Perhaps choosing the right color is overwhelming so you think that you’ll never find the right one.
Before you make any decisions, it’s a good idea to take a fresh look around you. You should essentially choose your room divider color last. Make sure you know what type of carpet and what color of carpet you are laying down. You should also take a look at the furnishings you will be including in your room. If all of your room colors and furnishings are already selected, you are half way there.
Here are a few tips that will help you select the perfect color for your room dividers.
Similar Color Schemes
If your room contains cool colors (pinks, purples, blues and certain greens), it’s best to stay with other cool colors. A couple of cool neutral colors are blue and grey. These colors tend to coordinate with most other cool colors. If your room contains warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows and some greens), selecting a warm toned room divider would be best. Beige or Tan colors tend to be easy to coordinate with warm neutral colors.
Opposing Color Schemes
Complementary color schemes are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. Red and Green, Purple and Yellow, Pink and Green, Blue and Orange are all complementary colors. If you are looking for a high contrasting look, you might want to try selecting a color that is the opposite of the colors in your room. Be cautious! Using complementary colors can be tricky. These colors together are vibrant and eye catching, use the complementary color scheme only if you want your room divider to stand out.

Your Own Personal Style
Picking a color that reflects your personality can be fun. Color can change your mood. If your style is relaxed and calm you may want to select blue shades. If you want to create excitement and energy you might want to select shades of red. Green is the color of health and nature. Green is also a relaxing color and represents a healing nature.
Whatever color you choose make sure that you like it. The color you select should reflect who you are. So have some fun, relax and you’ll be sure to find the perfect color for your room dividers.
