There are very few people that appreciate the beauty of neon blue. It is a rich, luxurious color that is usually used in the most opulent of homes as the wall color that sets a relaxed mood. And it is very popular as a wallpaper choice because it has such a great deal of value. If you already have some of this blue in your home and are wondering how to best use it, read on.
The first thing that many homeowners do when they are choosing a color for their walls is to choose something neutral. Neutral colors can work but they may not always be as inviting or comforting as blue. You will find that there are tones of blue that are very calming and soothing. These include shades of pale blue and the darker shades of blue. Many people opt for these shades because they offer a more steady tone without the vibrant nature of neon.
Neon blue works best when it is on the walls in rooms where you spend a lot of time. When you are choosing a wallpaper design, make sure that it will fit in with the rest of the furnishings in the room. If your room has an Asian or European flair to it, you might want to go with the wallpaper that is darker or monotone. If your home leans more towards the American side of the spectrum, you will likely want a brighter, more vibrant wallpaper. You can find wallpaper in almost any color combination that you are looking for.
If you do purchase neon blue wallpaper for your walls, you should take special care to clean it properly. It is very tempting to over-clean the walls and end up fading them. To avoid this, simply use a mild detergent and a sponge mop to wash the wall. Be sure to only scrub the area that receives heavy traffic.
Neutrals tend to look best when they are not painted in colors other than the main color they are paired with. If you are planning to hang a neon blue picture on the wall, you will probably want to paint it with one of the primary colors that are in the room. A neutral color like off-white or beige would be a nice compliment to the neon blue. White is also a great option if you are going with the painted wall approach.
When choosing your neon blue wallpaper, make sure you choose solid wall paper. Avoid going with stripes or patterns that are painted in colors. The space behind the wallpaper is already painted a color. Picking colors that will be on the paper will only cause the background to become distracting. This wallpaper is supposed to be a large part of the room and should not be distracting to the viewer.
