Color can account for up to 60% of our reaction to a place or product. While the color of a place may not directly affect your mood, it can certainly influence it. Because of this, choosing the right paint color is essential, so you can feel comfortable in your own home.

If you are unsure of a color, it’s a great idea to start in a smaller room, like a bathroom or small hallway. This will let you get used to the color and decide if it’s something you want to include in larger areas of your home. Plus, these areas are usually easier to paint, so you’ll be done sooner and can see your handiwork.

A great way to pick colors is to pull one from your favorite piece of furniture, artwork, or an area rug. Many times, those pieces are our favorites because they include colors that we enjoy looking at. This will ensure the color will tie into your existing decor and give your room a finished look. If you don’t want to use the color for the entire room, you can use it on one wall to create an accent wall.

Color can also help you create a cohesive look across your entire home. Even if you don’t want to paint all of your rooms the same color, you can paint one room a color and then paint adjacent spaces colors that are two tones lighter or darker. Pick a color from the same paint chip to ensure they will work well together.

If you’ve looked through what seems like a million paint samples and still can’t decide on what you want to do, we can help. We offer color consultations, where we will help you determine what kind of look you want to achieve in your home, as well as the mood you want to set. We can come to your home or office and help you create a personalized color palette, so you can be sure to get exactly what you’ll need. Our expert design consultants take a wide variety of factors into account, including lighting, flooring, furniture, and your own personal tastes.
