Almirah colour combinations for your home

Today, almirahs are considered an indispensable part of the bedroom’s design aesthetics rather than just a physical storage space for all your clothes and essentials. Have a look at our collection of hand-picked almirah colour combinations and take your pick for an almirah overhaul 

Since the almirah is the largest piece of furniture in your bedroom, it makes complete sense to incorporate more than one colour onto it to balance the hugeness of it and make it look visually attractive as well. Something as simple as changing the almirah colour can help you create more stunning almirah designs for Indian bedrooms, be it big or small.

It is a proven fact that colours can impact your mood and the ambience of your living space if the right ones are used in the right places in just the right amount. You can either go for elegant pastel shades to give your almirah a soft look or go bold with bright colours or even use a combination of both if you like. However, ensure that you aren’t using more than two or three shades (at the most) and that the almirah colour is blending in well with the existing bedroom decor so that your almirah doesn’t end up looking too overwhelming to the eye. 

Before heading into our collection of almirah colour ideas, let’s quickly address some FAQS that might be daunting some homeowners.

Almirah colour combination

What Are The Best Almirah Colours As Per Vastu?

As per Vastu Shastra, the best colours for your almirah are neutrals, lightwood finishes and whites as they make your bedroom look more spacious, sleek and bright. They also attract a lot of positive vibes to your bedroom which is something everyone generally yearns for.

If possible, try to avoid dark (deep) or flashy almirah colours like red and black as they are distracting, tend to attract negative energies and also make your bedroom look crowded and dull.

How To Change The Colour of Your Steel Almirah at Home?

Modifying the look of your traditional steel almirah at home using colour is actually pretty simple. Just follow the steps below and you’ll be a pro in no time. Here we go:

Step 1: Remove everything from the steel almirah and prepare it for painting by wiping it with sandpaper and cleaning it with a dry cloth to remove rust and smoothen the surface. Use newspapers or old cloth on the floor for the entire painting process

Step 2: Select your steel almirah colour combination as per the existing bedroom design aesthetics and paint it on the steel almirah using special spray paints as they’re easier and more convenient to use. Start painting each piece separately from inside out, that is, from the inner cabinets/drawers to the exterior of the almirah to avoid any overlapping or repainting issues

Step 3: Let the paint dry thoroughly and if needed, apply a second coat as well to fill the incomplete gaps. When you think you’re finally done, don’t forget to apply a specific primer for metals to prevent the occurrence of any future stains. Give it sufficient time to dry as well as per the instructions on the primer bottle

Step 4: Put all the drawers/cabinets back into their respective places once everything is done and you’re good to go

Let’s now have a look at the almirah colour combinations below. We’re sure you’ll get inspired to incorporate at least one into your bedroom space.
