How to Choose the Right Paint Colors

Painting the interior or exterior of your home is a major decision. While the process may seem straightforward, many homeowners regret their decision almost immediately after painting their walls. Use these helpful tips to get the most satisfaction and value out of your painting project.

Design Your Interior

Don’t just pick a color you enjoy, choose your wall color based on the entire design of your interior. From couches and end tables to wall hangings and flooring color, your whole room should have a unified look and feel. Don’t forget to look at the room from all angles, as well as adjacent rooms. Two rooms should transition naturally rather than leap from one color to another.

Shop the Shades

Once you’ve settled on a color, you may be surprised at the incredible range of shades available. Whether you’re looking for a calming blue or a fiery red, there are practically unlimited options in terms of shades and hues. Pick a few you like and compare them in your room or ask a professional to help you navigate the bewildering variety.

Experiment on Your Walls

A paint swatch is a helpful tool for comparing colors, but don’t commit until you see a small section of paint on your walls. Many paints dry slightly differently, and your interior lighting has a huge effect on the overall look of the shade. Your peaceful gray may look more dismal once it’s actually on your walls.

Choose a Feeling

Finally, paint color is all about feelings. What emotion do you want to feel when you enter a room? Do you want it to be a room where you sit and relax for hours or get moving and stay active? Consider asking a professional for color options that can work with your desired emotions for each room.
