Choosing the best paint colors for your house is enough to make anyone crazy! It’s only a simple question.
What colour should I paint my living room?
How do I use unique colors in various rooms and still make it all look good together? How do I know I’ll like it when I’ve finished? How long will I like it?
Sheesh!!! There are so many questions and even more choices to select from!
All of this can be intimidating so most people just give up and select a version of white. It’s a neutral, but usually it seems a little less than personable, right?
Well, I have a few suggestions which should help.
We want color! We are in need of color!! Rooms look more inviting because colour somehow seems more alive. Zillow posted an article last week that said how homes even sell better when they’re painted certain colors. There are lots of options so we know we can find one that we like, but let’s plan it out.
First, gather choices.
There are numerous sites that will ‘help’ you decide on a color. They show you exactly how many different choices they have and some of them can even show you exactly what it will look like in your room. This really is super helpful, IF you wish to figure out how their program works. I’ll show you how to narrow it down, do not worry.
Secondly, consider the mood you want in the area. Relaxing? Socializing?
Then, have a second and consider what you will look like when you’re in the room.
I understand, this is just a little bit unconventional. Like the blue sky, Daytona Beach FL Rat Removal, or flowers, or a maybe a cool red vehicle.
That’s because we want to feel and look our best, even in our home. When we feel we are at our best we’re more happy and recharge from the world much more quickly.
Fourth, figure out which colors complement you personally.
Some folks look great in shades of blue, and many others look best in shades of orange. It only requires a couple of minutes to find out which color looks best on you.
Some Steps to Help Choose the Best Colors
These tips will give us a wonderful variety of colors that we can use as a palette to choose from.
With this first palette is a great start as it really narrows down the choices.
Step 2 – We know which colours make us look our best, we need to take into account the purpose of the room we’re painting.
Which room is it, and how do we want to feel when we are inside?
It would be smart to also think about the colors that are already in the furniture upholstery and artwork.
Coordinating colors always seem ‘put together’, like we know precisely what we’re doing.
Once you know the main colors that make you look best, and fit upholstery or curtains that you enjoy, Adobe has a trendy Color Wheel tool. You may take your colours to the wheel and then plug them in one at a time and it’ll show you which colours will complement or match with the one you have selected.
When you have your color choices narrowed down to 3 or 4, then you can take them to one of these websites which allow you to load pictures of your room and then test out the color in pictures.
This will make it much more easy to determine which colour to use.
