Tips for choosing the right paint color for your home

Personalising your home makes it much more comfortable for you and your family. While adding a few pictures here and there will do, there is nothing better than getting the home décor of your dreams to personalise a home.

Here are some tips that will help you select the most suitable colors for your home

Do not, under anu circumstances, pick out the color first when you are decorating your home. while it may seem natural to want the biggest projects completed first, it may not work out so great for you. most of the time, people end up picking a color that does not match their furniture and personality at all.

Do you have any inspirations? Sometimes, the only way to make a certain decision is to check out other people’s designs and color pallets. Thankfully, there is an array of search engines and social media platforms that have pictures you can use as references.

Make a board for all rooms in your home and start planning one by one. You do not have to settle for one color at first, there is so much to choose from when it comes to home art decorations.

Your inspiration can come from anything basically, it might be a label somewhere in the store, or just a random color you saw on tv.

Stick with more neutral colors. It is very rare for people to decorate homes with bright/shouting colors. Let me point that I am in no way saying you should not, but it will be very difficult to style and may end up making the home more difficult to style.

If you are looking for a bold wall color, then you should be ready for a neutral living space to match and vice versa. Bold colors work well in the bathroom because there is minimal furniture and everything else will probably be painted in neutral colors.

Use testers on your walls before you make the final decision. Sometimes, you don’t really know what you want your walls to look like until you can really picture the colors.  Thankfully, you can purchase a few testers once you narrow down the kind of colors you want for your walls and use that to make the final decision.  All paint brands have testers available to make it easy for homeowners and builders.

Testers can be life savers; they reduce the chances of you having to repaint the walls again because you got the wrong shades.  Use a couple of testers on the walls and leave them up until you make the final decisions

The right kind of sheen could be a game changer for the colors on your walls. Some general finishing choices include a flat/matte finish, eggshell enamel, flat enamel, satin enamel, high gloss and semi-gloss enamel.

Final word

Test the paint colors against your furniture, or home décor. If you already have furniture, you have to base your decisions on that as much as other things. You cannot choose a color that does not rhyme with the furniture otherwise the home will look really awkward.  As a professional to help you select colors that will complement the furniture as well as the carpets and home decors.
