How to Choose the Right Paint Color for your Space


Think About your End Goal

What do you want the space to feel like? Are you shooting for light and airy, or rich and masculine? Are you trying to evoke whimsy in a kids room or drama in your master bedroom? Once you decide on the overall feel you are going for, you can easily narrow your search for the perfect color. Once you have a good idea in your mind of the direction you want to go in, start to do a little research in places like home decor magazines and Pinterest. This will allow you to picture how different colors actually work in different rooms of the home. This is much more effective than looking at a wall of swatches at your local paint store.

Work Around What you Have

When choosing a paint color, you of course want to keep in mind the pieces that will be going in the room. If you have a lot of dark furniture, consider staying lighter on the walls. If you have mostly neutral furniture pieces, consider a muted color like a blue gray for example to add in color that way. You don't want to paint you walls something that wont make sense with the other items in the room. 

When in Doubt, Go Neutral

If you are really struggling to decide on a paint color, neutrals are always a good idea. Some popular neutral paint colors include greiges which are combinations of beige and gray paint colors. This keeps your walls up to date while also staying warm and inviting. This will allow your walls to be a nice base for you to build on from there. You can then add color in things like art, rugs, and accessories!
