All You Need To Know About Red Commercial Wallpaper
Red is a bold, powerful color that transforms the space immediately. Whether you're using a lighter tone or a deeper red shade, red commercial wallpaper is a must for those who want to create a strong, memorable visual aesthetic for their space. Since color can impact the mood of a room, what does red wallpaper do for the commercial space? Similar to brighter yellows and greens, red is a very energetic color that adds life to the room. It revitalizes the space, but unlike yellow/green that adds a natural or organic appeal, red is passionate and dramatic.
Red is a wallpaper color that garners attention immediately, so keep this in mind when choosing wallpaper patterns for your commercial space. Do you want the wallpaper. Pattern to be primarily red or do you want to have that color as part of a larger color palette?
In this wallpaper mural, a deeper red color is used for the floral blossoms. It's not used a lot, but that's what makes it stand out against the plainer white background. On the other hand, the wallpaper mural below features both dominant colors – red and blue – in relatively equal proportions. This pattern is more about the contrast between two colors.
Because red is such a noticeable color, you can also use this to your advantage when designing your commercial space. Using vibrant colors is a great way to draw your visitors' attention to key spaces, such as the receptionist's desk at a hotel. Using red throughout the space is an excellent way to transform the whole room, creating an energetic look and feel. On the other hand, mixing in different colors can create a contrasting effect that yields different emotions. Red and black wallpaper can help deepen the emotional look, while brightening things up with red and white can help create a more minimalist look. Red and purple wallpaper emphasizes a luxurious, royal aesthetic while red and blue has a professional finish.
