How To Colour Block - Colourtrend Paints

April 21, 2022 2 min read

Colour blocking is a great way to elevate and transform your space. This simple painting technique will add depth and colour, and can be used to define a specific area within your home- such as the dining section of your kitchen. Colour blocking gives you the freedom to design your space exactly how you want to, choose every detail from the colour right down to the shape and size of your colour block to create a unique look in your home.

Take a look at this gorgeous Pantry Blue colour block as one example of how you can use this technique in your own interior space. As can be seen here, Pantry Blue has been applied in a simple rectangular shape to give definition to this study area. This is a great idea for those working from a corner or small nook of a room and are looking to separate their workspace from their living space. This concept can be applied to so many different areas of your home, why not consider using this technique to draw attention to your favourite console table in your hallway or give focus to that beloved piece of art hanging in your living room?
