The colors of the rooms in your home reflect your kind of person. Men and women who live there can discuss together some compromises to even the score in deciding for the colors of the house interiors. If you’re an adventurous type, perhaps light blue reflects the color of the sky especially if you like to sky dive. Or if you are uptight, red or similar color will do.

On the other hand, it is quite possible that not only does the way we decorate our homes reflect who we are, but the shades and tones of hue within our walls also does the exact opposite. Instead of reflecting our moods, they may help cause them. Reddish tints can make people nervous and agitated. Yellow make many people pensive and introverted. And there are many other forms of this where colors in our homes effect one's mood.

Even if colors affect one's mood, so does sunlight. Bringing a little more rays of sunshine in a house can help lighten up any house. Here are some tips for making your house lighter with consideration of the usual financial management check.
  • Open the shades. Many people are afraid of exposing themselves to the outside, but with a little bravery nothing does better than opening those blinds. (Use natural light as much as possible. Don't rely on artificial light as much. Try to allow the sun to serve as most of your available light inside.)
  • Bring the outdoors in by adding a wall mounted water fountain to your home. These items often come in bright metals, such as stainless steel and copper, that have an almost mirror-like effect.
  • If you do use artificial lights, try not to use florescent. Florescent light, although very bright, has a dull glow to it that is piercing and doesn't possess that glow other lights have. At night, use lamps not overhead lights. Lamps offer a warm glow, not an overpowering glare.
  • Do not be shy with mirrors. Mirrors carry light more throughout a room. Mirrors reflect light and make a great backdrop for lit candles.
  • Try a freestanding electric fireplace. They can be moved from room to room, can offer both light and heat, and the mantel serves as a great location to place candles on.
The color that the walls, furniture and other household items have, can seriously alter the brightness of a house.
  • Try lighter colors for the walls. White is fine, but this is too transparent. Try an off white, a light blue or some other ‘cheery' color.
  • Try to tone down on furniture that have too intricate of patterns on them. Simple patchwork, dots and the like have a lighter feel than say more intricate designs that are too busy.
  • Keep the arrangement simple. When arranging the furniture and other living items, keep everything spread out and symmetric. Nothing dampens a mood like clutter.
So if you plan to spend extra bucks and your shopping mood seems ready for compromise for that long awaited home improvement, consider the right choice of color, proper arrangements of furniture and fixtures, and the lighting provision that will suit your personality and wishes.
