Determining Paint Color

May 14, 2019

Deciding what color to paint your home is a big deal! You live there every day, so you are going to want to pick a color you will love. That may sound like a difficult task, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are some tips to follow to make sure you pick the right paint color for your home.

Don’t Start with The Paint Color

That may sound like an odd tip when trying to decide what color you want to paint your home. There are a few things to think through before you dive into color options. Unless you are planning on refurnishing your home you will want to pick a color that goes well with your furniture. Your home décor is also important to keep in mind.

Look for Inspiration

It may be challenging to envision in your head what colors will look best so start by looking for inspiration! You can do a simple image search on the internet to see how other people have painted their homes. You can then compare your findings and narrow down a list depending on the colors and styles that you love the most.

Pick a Color from Your Favorite Piece of Art

If you are hanging a piece of art in your home, it is most likely because something is drawing you to it. That something likely has something to do with the colors on the art piece. This is a great way to find the perfect color for you!

 Pick More than One Color

If you like the idea of having the same color flow throughout your home that is completely fine. It’s probably the easier choice. However, if you want the vibe of your home to vary from room to room then you may want to select multiple paint colors depending on what you want the mood of each room to be. You could select one color and use darker or lighter variations for different areas of your house depending on the lighting each room gets.

Sample Your Colors Before Choosing

This one may seem obvious, but it needed to be said. If you are going to change the entire interior color of your home and buy gallons and gallons of paint, you want to make sure you are picking the right color choice for you!
