Tips for Selecting Your Perfect Interior Paint Color​

What is your favorite color? Blue? Red? Maybe even yellow?  Just because a certain color may be your favorite doesn’t necessarily mean it will work inside of your home! The colors you paint the interior of your house will shape not only how you feel about where you reside, but all of your guests and family members as well. Selecting a beautiful color may seem like a tough decision that has long-term consequences, but having your home painted is anything but stressful, especially when it is completed by a crew of experts. Here are some tips help you pick the perfect color for the interior of your home from our dedicated team at Executive Craftsman!

 

Consider Making Connected Rooms Neutral

 

A neutral color scheme can go a long way in your home. While it would be jarring if you painted one room a dark navy and then the connected room a soft green, replacing one of those colors with a light grey or a white helps bring out the color of the connected room and doesn’t draw attention. Plus, when you feature neutral colors in your home you leave open the option for furniture and other accent pieces to bring in bright pops of color or even different textures. We love the look of a neutral colored wall with white trim and furniture that features a brass or copper color! When combined, this trifecta can truly make all of those inside of your home feel comfortable and at home.

 

Don’t be afraid to be bold

 

Sometimes being bold pays off, and that is certainly true for interior painting. If you have a specific color you love and know exactly what hue you want, go for it! Just be careful with what other colors you use for the remaining rooms. Being bold comes with the risk of clashing colors! In certain cases, bold colors like a bright green can pair well with a dark, rich brown color, especially when hints of white are added into the mix of a room.

 

Keep the upstairs and downstairs paint separate

 

Be sure to use two different colors and hues for the floors of your home. It’ll help splash some variety in your home and give each level a distinct feel. Your downstairs should have a more neutral feel to it so that all guests and family members can enjoy the space, but not everyone always heads up the stairs, so this is your opportunity as a homeowner to take risks, go out on a limb, and get your inner interior designer on! Even if the colors you select don’t look ideal, you can always make a switch and try something new.

 

Don’t be afraid to test your pallet

 

Don’t be afraid to experiment with your pallets and paint options, push the limits! It’s your home so make it the way you want it! As long as you can walk through the front door and you feel comfortable, then all is well! No one will ever walk into your foyer, take a peek at the walls, and then criticize you! A home is meant to set the homeowner’s heart on fire and provide them with a space to experience happiness, safety, and most importantly – love!

 

Build a strong hue range

Different hues of the same color can do wonders for your home. Just think how many shades of blue, green, and red there are and multiply that by every color. To put it simply, you have endless color options! Build a hue pallet and see what looks best.
