How contrast can help
Navigation need not be an impediment for people with a sight problem. At Crown Paints we acn help our customers create environments which are accessible for everybody.If good visual contrast already exists within a space, navigation becomes much easier
There are different types of contrast:
1: Tonal colour contrast
It has been proven that the visually impaired people find it much easier to differentiate a tonal difference between colours (light against dark colour or vice versa) than between different colour hues, such as red and green.
When providing inclusive colour schemes, adjacent colours should ideally vary in tone by 30% or more. This shouldn’t be perceived as being a restriction on interior design as it is easy to create a wide range of inclusive colour schemes for the visually impaired that meet regulations and which are aesthetically pleasing for everybody.
