When it comes to overall popularity, the color blue reigns supreme, so here are some stunning ideas to incorporate the color blue into your home’s design or a remodeling project.
Why People Are Drawn to Blue in Home Design
There isn’t a single color more popular in the world than blue. Its popularity extends to every country and demographic. But why? What does blue represent?
The color blue is closely associated with feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly. People have also been shown to be more productive in the presence of blue and it can also boost creativity.
Conversely, blue can create feelings of sadness or aloofness. It is also one of the least appetizing colors on the spectrum, and foods that turn blue are typically spoiled. But despite the few negatives, blue remains universally the most popular color. Because of its broad appeal, it is often considered a non-polarizing color.
People who like the color blue share similar character traits. They can be more dependable, trustworthy, gentle, compassionate, peaceful, and strong.
It is not hard to see why blue is a popular color in home design and remodeling. After all, when you think about what you want to feel in your home, what can be better than feeling peaceful and serene? This is exactly why our customers and designers love to use blue. Here are a few of the most beautiful and stunning ways to incorporate the world’s favorite color into your home.
