Selecting Colors You Will Love to See in Your Home

Last updated 5 years ago

Many homeowners stick with bland neutral colors to avoid offending anyone’s design sensibilities. However, your home is your retreat, so it should reflect your personal tastes and preferences. There are countless ways to incorporate your favorite colors throughout your home with professional painting. Just take a look below for some design tips.

Building a Mood
The mood and impact of a particular color can vary significantly depending on its hue and shade. For example, dark blue can provide a home office with a cool and professional appearance, while a light blue will open up the living space and evoke a light-hearted atmosphere. Cool colors such as blue and green tend to evoke relaxation and concentration, while warm colors tend to be more energetic and inviting. Consult with a professional painter if you’re not sure about the basics of color theory and how certain palettes will interact with your living space.

Planning Rooms Schemes
Determine where and how you want to incorporate colors throughout your home. Be aware that certain colors such as reds and yellows are generally more suited to kitchen and dining room areas, whereas bedrooms and living rooms are typically more suited to muted colors. However, there are exceptions to every rule, so don’t hesitate to try something new.

Using Color Combinations and Different Paints
Not all colors work well together, so take care to use established color schemes to avoid an abrupt shift from one room to the next or a gaudy appearance. Paint color isn’t the only factor to consider; factors such as light reflectivity vary between paint brands and can significantly impact the final appearance of a room.
