What to Expect at your Colour Selection

Building a new home is an exciting and fulfilling journey. One crucial aspect of the building process is the colour selection stage. Choosing the right colours for your home’s exterior, interior, kitchen, flooring, and bathrooms can significantly impact the overall look and feel of your living space. At Arista Homes, we will guide you through what to expect during each colour selection process, helping you create a harmonious and personalised home that reflects your unique style and preferences.


1. Exterior Colour Selection Process

The exterior of your home is its first impression. When selecting colours for the exterior, consider the architectural style, neighbourhood aesthetics, and personal taste. We first begin by choosing a primary colour for the exterior siding or brickwork, followed by secondary colours for trims, doors, and accents. We take into account factors like the local climate, lighting conditions, and the surrounding environment to ensure the colours you select harmonise with the natural elements.


2. Interior Colour Selection Process

The interior colour scheme sets the mood and ambiance of your home. Start by considering the overall theme or style you want to achieve—whether it’s contemporary, traditional, minimalist, or eclectic. You can discover the different interior home design styles to find out which one resonates with you. Choosing a cohesive colour palette that flows from one room to another is essential in creating a space that makes you feel comfortable. While neutral tones like whites, greys, and beiges are versatile and timeless, don’t shy away from adding pops of colour to create visual interest and focal points.


3. Kitchen Selection Process

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and its colours should be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. We will begin by selecting the cabinetry colour and finish. You can choose from a wide range of options, such as warm wood tones, classic whites, or bold statement colours. Consider coordinating the countertop colours with the cabinetry, and select complementary hues for the backsplash, flooring, and appliances. Strike a balance between creating a visually appealing space and ensuring practicality and durability for the busiest room in the house.


4. Flooring Selection Process

Flooring plays a significant role in tying the design elements of your home together. When selecting flooring colours and materials, we consider the functionality, style, and maintenance requirements. Wood, tile, laminate, and carpet are popular choices, each offering a variety of colours and finishes. Lighter flooring colours can make a room feel more spacious, while darker tones add warmth and coziness. Coordinate the flooring colours with your chosen interior colour scheme to create a cohesive and harmonious look.


5. Bathroom Selection Process

Bathrooms are often a place for relaxation and rejuvenation. We first start by selecting a colour scheme for the bathroom fixtures, such as sinks, bathtubs, and toilets. Neutral tones like whites, greys, and pastels create a serene and spa-like atmosphere, while bolder hues add vibrancy and personality. Coordinate the wall and floor tiles to complement the fixtures, and select colours for the vanity, countertops, and accessories that enhance the overall aesthetic.
