Choosing a color to paint your house may take the most time. Removing wallpaper or painting a dark white ceiling can be a huge pain. But, on the other hand, it’s a lot to think about. Most of the time, no. It’s hard to choose paint colors for several rooms at once.
If you’re moving into a new place or getting rid of everything in your old one, the colors outside your windows are a great place to start. It’s a great idea to decorate your home with colors you can find in nature. The way these earthy colors go together makes for a relaxing interior design scheme.
Use an empty slate to build on.
Paint colors are always changing, just like people’s tastes in furniture and decor. So to give your home a clean, classic look, keep the main colors of your furniture and walls neutral. After that, it’s easy to add new colors that are in style by replacing or rearranging things like doors, cabinets, and small design accents.
Bring it together.
If you paint one room a soothing sage green, that doesn’t mean you have to paint all the trim in the house the same color. But as you move from one space to another, your choices should be consistent and make sense.
Use paint swatches and paint chips as guides.
The products that paint and hardware stores sell to help you choose colors are meant to do more than give you more options. First, use fan decks to narrow down the choices you have. When you choose your last three colors, you’re almost done. The next step is to hold paint samples up to the wall to see how they look.
Think for yourself
If you’d rather let a machine do the work for you, you’ll be glad to know that most major paint companies now have virtual color tools to help you choose a scheme and see how it will look in your room. Also, they can ensure you don’t have to run out to the hardware store in the middle of the job.
