Walking down the paint aisle at your local home improvement store can be both exhilarating and overwhelming. There are literally hundreds of options when choosing colors for your home.
Even though it can feel like a difficult decision, choosing wisely can add a level of warmth and enjoyment to your new home. Here are a few tips when it comes to choosing colors for your home – your sacred space:
When choosing paint, go for a test run. Pick up to 6 colors that you really love and buy the smallest size of paint that you can (most stores will offer a sample size). Paint a swatch of each color on your wall, and after a week of seeing the colors, it’s likely you’ll have a clear frontrunner.
Coordinate with your furniture. If you have a piece of furniture that you invested quite a bit of money in, work around it. For example, if you own a huge green couch, painting your walls a shade of pink might not be the best idea because it would then require that you buy a new couch as well. Work around your bigger pieces when picking your colors.
Know your colors and use moderation. Just because you like cobalt blue doesn’t mean you’ll love it floor to ceiling on the walls of your home office. Subdued hues of your favorite colors can bring in your love of the shade while keeping your home subtle enough to live in every day.
Know the purpose of your room and the feeling you’ll want walking into it. Different colors evoke different emotions. For example, blues and greens can make people feel calm and relaxed, white rooms can seem spacious but can also come across as cold and unfriendly, and red rooms can evoke strong emotions and are associated with warmth and comfort. Consider those feelings when choosing the paint for each room and what you want to feel when you’re in there.
