Choosing The Right Paint Color

How do you choose the right paint color? Picking out the paint colors for your home can be quite challenging due to millions of paint colors to choose from and you do not know where to start. We'd like to share some tips to help you find the perfect color that's right for you and your space! It might feel overwhelming to narrow down the list of colors so you may want to check out the following:

1. Identify the purpose of the room. The intent of the room can help you guide in selecting the right color. The psychology of color can affect our mood, it can cheer us up, energize or make us feel calm and relax.


2. Consider the Lighting. Natural and artificial lights affect the color of the walls. The color looks different under different types of light, so try them in the appropriate lighting. Natural sunlight shows the real color while incandescent lighting brings out warm tones and yellows. Fluorescent lights bring out a sharp blue tone. Depending on the type of light in the room, the color can look different from the color you thought you chose.

3. Color Wheel. Warm colors versus cool colors, a small room will look bigger if you apply cool colors and a big room will appear smaller if you choose a warm color. The color wheel can help you pick color combinations that work well together.

4. Consider the existing decorations, furniture, and accent pieces as a guide. Coordinate your wall with these focal pieces.

5. Use samples. Test the color by painting small patches on different walls to check how the paint looks when the light hits it at different times of the day.

6. Consider the overall color scheme of your home. The shades should flow as you go from one room to another. Flowing paint color creates a relaxing vibe. If you're working with a small room, flowing paint color throughout the rooms gives an illusion of a bigger space.
