Picking the Right Colour:
Choose your Colour Carefully with Samples
Paint isn’t permanent. If you choose the wrong colour or colours for your home, you can always paint the rooms again. However a re-paint is the last thing you want to do, so pick your paint colours carefully.
Use Colour to Create Space, Warmth and Character
Before you decide on your colours, consider the size of the room that you are going to be painting.
Do you want to change the perception of space? Painting a small room a dark colour can make the room feel smaller than it actually is. However, a darker colour in a huge room can make it feel more intimate, another consideration is whether you would like to paint all of your rooms the same colour. Painting your whole house the same colour can lend your home a polished, finished appearance. You can use accent colours, wall hangings or furniture to add colour interest to your monochromatic painting plan.
Colour and Emotion
On the other hand, having different colours in your rooms, will give your home more of an eclectic feel. You can also coordinate the colour of the room with activities that normally take place there. For example/ Picking a warm colour, such as red orange or yellow for your living room or family room might make the room feel more inviting. In your bedrooms, consider cool colours from the violet-blue-green range to help create a calming soothing atmosphere.
Check your paint chip colours at different times of the day to see how the changing light affects the colours. Don’t forget to turn on any lamps or lights that you might have on during that particular time of day.
