Tips for choosing the right paint color
Sometimes we decide to color our house but we don’t have a clue about the color. How can we choose a color that is suitable for our house?
Here are some tips to consider.
Don’t pick your paint color first
The first thing that you do is to go ahead and choose the paint color but don’t do that. Before doing so there are other things to consider.
Start with an inspiration
Look around you and see what colors catch your eyes. You can get your inspirations from different places, from your mug to your blanket. Try to have an eye to really see things that make you interested in the color.
Stick with neutrals
Color is good, but you have to first decide where you want the attention in a room to go. If your answer is the walls, then heck, go bold. And if you go bold on the walls everything else in the room should be pretty neutral so that you don’t end up with too many things competing. This is why bold color in a bathroom can work so well because most everything else in a bathroom is already neutral (white.)
Nowadays there are testers for your painting colors. Don’t forget to use them before going to the big painting. Use the testers for each room to see the effect of light on it and then decide whether it’s the color of your choice or not.
Test your paint color against furniture
Don’t only test your colors on the wall. Instead, paint a piece of poster board and hold it up against your sofa, table or other items that will be in the room to see it goes. You don’t necessarily want to match, but you do want the undertones to go nicely.
After you have done all these things then you are ready to choose the right color for your house.
