Posted by creatingyourspace under Design and Decorating

Has the time come that you are ready to paint your home? We would love to share some valuable tips with you to avoid common mistakes when choosing paint colors. Our helpful tips will eliminate any and all questions or concerns about choosing the right paint color! Let’s take a look!
How to Choose The Right Paint Color: 
  1. Do Not Pick Your Color First – Determine what you are keeping in the room. Organize existing colors in the room starting with the flooring, furniture, window coverings, artwork, and area rugs. You will also want to take a look at how much natural light comes into the room. Consider how all these various colors play off each other and choose your color to support these multiple items. We recommend selecting your main wall color from an accent throw pillow, area rug or window coverings. If you pick your color first, you may end up limiting your choices for items that match.
  2. Consider the Entire Home – Think about walking from room to room and understanding that this flow is detrimental in the transition from each space. You will want the entire home to blend aesthetically from room to room. There should not be an awkward break in any space. Ideally, you will want each room to flow into the next. For example, you would not want to paint the kitchen red and have the family room be a neon green. 
  3. Do Not Pick a Color Too Saturated or Bright – If you love red, we recommend not painting the entire room red because it will overpower the room. Instead, choose an accent piece like a lamp with a red base or red accent pillows to introduce the color into the room. Wall colors with a lighter more muted color like a gray work much better for the wall color. The last thing you want is for the paint colors to fight and clash with the other colors in the room.
  4. Your Emotional Goals, Do Not Overlook Them – It is essential to understand what tone you are trying to set for each space. For example, your bedroom should be a peaceful and relaxing retreat. When you enter the room, the visual goal is to decompress and relax preparing you for a restful night’s sleep. Choosing a bright saturated color will have the opposite effect. Think of using a more muted green, blue, lavender or gray paint colors to set the tone of tranquility. You can use this tip for any space. Take into consideration what kind of energy you what the space to evoke and go from there.
