The power of colour in a classic interior

The power of colour

in a classic interior

With the help of profiles and panelling, you can play with light and shadow, thereby creating depth on your walls. Colour is also a determining factor in your interior. The right combinations immediately create a wow effect.

Colour is important and also a very easy way to get develop a room's potential in a creative way. Especially if you know how to accent the right elements with it. Installing panelling or wall profiles in a colour gives a certain flow through the interior. Do you choose one colour for all profiles? Or do you change them according to the room and its function? You can decide that entirely for yourself. According to your taste and style.

All Orac Decor® profiles can be painted immediately after installation. So it is high time to experiment with colour. Orac will help you along the way with some useful tips.

Unity with colour

The easiest way to use colour is to continue the colour palette of the wall over the profiles. This gives a sleek, uniform result. Ideal for those who like to keep things simple.

By using one colour you bring out the texture and feel of real wood. A large space certainly will not look smaller as a result. What about a smaller room? It just appears bigger.

White mouldings

White is often chosen for low and high wall mouldings. Even with large mouldings, white is often chosen because it brings out the architectural added value in the paint. It gives your room a completely different look.

With a light colour on your moulding, your room seems a little darker and smaller and is therefore more appropriate for larger spaces.


Colour blocking

Have you thought about using profiles as the transition between different colours? It's an effective way to do colour blocking. Two pronounced colours on both sides produce a very cosy effect.

How? With this horizontal dividing line, you place the emphasis on the height of the ceiling. You no longer look from left to right, but from bottom to top. If you apply the colour of the ceiling to the frame, you lower the ceiling. This makes the room appear lower and cosier.

Graphic elements

For example, choose a nice wallpaper and make it stand out by framing it with one or more wall mouldings. Place your wallpaper just above or below the horizontally positioned profiles, or inside the mouldings on the wall. The pattern in the wallpaper is then entirely reflected. For example, choose a wallpaper paper with a baroque motif or influences. This creates a vibrant, striking and luxurious look.
