Choosing a Paint Color Scheme for Your House

Following a few simple steps will help you get the desired result. When picking a paint color it is important to really think about the room you are painting. Think of the mood for that room. Are you going for a dramatic effect or an intimate one? Strong colors add drama to a room while soft colors or neutrals create a quieter feeling. Something important to pay attention to when choosing a color is the lighting. The light in a room changes throughout the day. Natural light shows the truest color. Make sure to test your color choice by painting a large area on the wall or a poster board. Sometimes going out of your comfort zone may surprise you at what you like so go for it! Many paint retailers allow you to take a picture on your phone of the room you want to paint and then choose colors to see what it would look like.

The colors you choose are a reflection of your personality. The easiest and most cost effective way to redecorate is to apply a fresh coat of paint that is sure to brighten any room.
