Effect of Color On Your Wood Project


Color can definitely have an effect on any kind of project you do. It does not matter if it is inside or outside projects. Color can make your project feel larger or smaller. It can act as a link between your house and the rest of your property. It may also be used to draw attention to your canopy gazebo, deck, or patio. Color can also help hide a gazebo in a shady corner of the yard.

However, your overall goal should be to unify the architectural elements that you already have so that no single structure will dominant and the features of all the structures appear to be balanced. The same rules that apply to interior design also work outside. Light colors will make your project feel larger, while darker colors will give a more intimate feel. Depending on your surroundings, you can accent your canopy gazebo with both light and dark colors .  Color can be used to make your structure stand out, if that is what you are trying to achieve. To do this the color needs to contrast with its background.

It is possible to enhance the effect of shadows by using light colors on projecting elements, and dark colors on insets
Don't go overboard when applying accents. Subtle change in color and small details will do more for your project than
you might imagine. Because of this, whatever you think you like, try cutting it in half. A high-contrast scheme focuses the eye on each detail and will make your project appear smaller. If  your canopy gazebo needs to look larger, you might opt for a low-contrast scheme. Pale colors reflect more light, heat, and UV rays, so they tend to last a little longer. One drawback to pale colors is that it will seem to show flaws more easily with time.
