Painting is a cheap and quick way to make your old home more sellable if you are putting it on the market or to give an old room a breath of fresh air. After looking at ideas to find color inspiration, we are here to help you paint any room in your house or apartment. And if picking one paint color for your living room is tricky, how on earth do you find colors for every room? How will you know that the colors will go together? Find out all you have ever wanted to know about choosing the right color paint and get inspired to tackle your own walls.
It may seems natural to get the biggest things done first, but it will be much easier for you to choose paint color that goes with your home decorations and furniture than to choose furniture to go with a paint color.
When deciding on paint, Pinterest is an ideal place to start. Make a board for pinning and save each room you like. Once you have about 20 pictures you will get a feel for what you are attracted more and you will know how to style your space. Don’t get surprised if you get inspired from a coffee mug.
STICK WITH NEUTRALS
This not mean that you should avoid color, but to decide where you want the attention in your room to go. If you want to go with bold walls, then you should keep everything pretty neutral. Everything in your bathroom is probably white, so you can choose some bold color for the walls.
Buy testers in a few shades and paint an area on a few walls so that you can see how the light hits it at different times of the day. You can also think about painting a piece of poster board and hold it up against your chairs, table or sofa to see if goes.
HAVE A COLOR THEME THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE HOME
You don’t have to paint your apartment or house the same color, but especially in rooms that open into one another consider what each room will look like when standing in another. To add depth to your interior choose a few shades darker or lighter in one room or even on one focal wall. Or you can play safe and go with one color for the walls and make the space cheerful with some accessories and interesting fabrics.
- ELEGANT LOOK. Neutral colors offer flexibility and elegance within a room. The best thing is that they are no longer simply beige and white. You can make your living room look more elegant by selecting varying shades of neutral, like almond walls with red toned browns on the trim. Pops of colors can be added throughout the room with a color vase, pillow, or throw carefully placed to offset the subtle neutral tones in the space. Keep in mind that the lighter color you go the more spacious and airier your room will appear. Varying shades of garner, mahogany and rust will add feeling of richness and earthiness and offer instant elegance to your home.
- VIBRANT LOOK. Your home will look more vibrant with colors like dark purples and reds, gold and oranges. For a real stand out contrast, you can also select black and red.
- FOCAL POINTS. You can instantly change the look of your kitchen, bedroom or living room by adding a darker color to one particular wall or contrasting colors to the walls and trim. You can also make your loom larger by painting the walls a darker color and the trim a lighter shade within the same color scheme. But you can make your space look smaller by painting one wall a darker shade too.
