Moving into a new house or feeling in the mood for a color revamp? Re-painting your walls has proved to have a major impact on your mood and on the general appearance of the house. Picking the perfect interior paint color can seem to be much of a hassle especially when there are a lot of options to pick from and a lot of other considerations to make.
USE A COLOR CONSULTANT
If you would like a new color scheme and aren’t sure which interior paint colors to choose, a color consultant can point you in the right direction. A color consultant will give you some amazing color scheme recommendations and also teach you all you need to know about lightning and the way it affects the colors you choose.
START WITH THE COLORS YOU LOVE AND SAMPLE THEM
Using your favorite color as your base color will help you create a color scheme around it. And having a color scheme to pick from narrows down your options and reduces your confusion.
Now with the color scheme options you have, start by sampling paint colors using pieces of matching fabrics to lay across the walls and find which appeals to you more.
THINK ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF EACH ROOM
These are the questions to ask yourself before you conclude on color schemes; “what do I want to use the space for and who’s going to use the space” they are very important questions to answer before proceeding.Now it’s very common to work from home and to have home offices so you might want to select a stimulating and energizing color for the room that suits that purpose. White does it best. Or are you thinking about the best color to paint in the children’s playroom? Colors like sea blue or yellow will be great.
TAKE NOTE OF PROMINENT OBJECTS:If you already have furniture or art in the house, you may as well draw the best color inspiration from these objects. Consider the hues and tones of these objects before you decide on the best color to do your interior painting with. Also, put into consideration the color of your floors and your future renovation plans.
THINK ABOUT THE MOOD YOU WANT FOR EACH ROOM:
If you want to make an expansive space feel more cozy and intimate, use warm hues, such as browns, orange, or reds, that advance toward you to make the walls feel closer. Do you want to make a small room seem bigger? Use cool hues—such as blues, greens, and purples—which recede visually, to make the walls feel more distant.
