Looking for new paint colors for rooms in your home can be a daunting prospect. With a vast selection of paint colors to choose from, how do you know which will be the perfect color for your interior decor? Interior painting is a time-consuming project and so picking the right color the first time is ideal. Here are some tips to help.
1) Matching your interior decor.
Matching paint to intense fabric color or accent piece can become overbearing in a room. Choosing a lighter version of the accent color can help avoid overkill, or choosing a complementary color will make your room look more exciting and cohesive.
2) Being too safe with color
It takes guts to step outside the proverbial box when choosing wall colors for your interior painting. If your furniture is neutral in color, you can afford to choose something bright and bold. But if your furniture is colorful and patterned, choosing the same colors for your walls can be too much. Neutral colors on your walls are calming, clean, easy to live with, and a great choice if your interior decor is already busy. Professional painting contractors can guide you in this choice.
3) Using the wrong finish
For interior painting finishes, different types include eggshell, satin, flat, gloss, and semi-gloss. Where you are applying the paint dictates the most suitable kind of finish. In high traffic areas, like the kitchen, bathrooms, and kids’ rooms that will require regular cleaning, an eggshell, gloss, or semi-gloss paint is ideal.
