What Color Should I Choose?

The task of selecting the right color to paint a room can be a daunting task. There are a few people who have the insight to be able to choose the right color on the first try. They seem to be able to know what would look best and where.

There may be more than one color that fits in your space. Remember too, that if in the beginning you paint a color and decide later it just was not the best choice, it can easily be changed. This is one of the greatest qualities when selecting to paint as opposed to wallpapering a space. Another benefit of painting is it can be less costly if you decide later on, that you want to change the design and colors in your room.

Do not be fooled by the experts who specialize in painting. They often struggle in the area of selecting paint colors too. This is not a fact they willingly share with others. Many times you will only be exposed to their finished project and not be allowed to view how they achieved the finished room. Therefore, not allowing you to see what the level of difficulty completing the room actually was.

It is recommended that you purchase the small samples of paint in colors you want to try. Apply a patch of each color on the desired walls and live with them for a few days. Pay close attention to how the different light throughout each day, affects how the color looks in your room. Lighting plays a major part on how a color looks and will help you determine if you like a certain color or not. If you are not up to painting the color on the walls, another way to go is to paint the color on sample boards. Display the boards in different places throughout the room. Make sure you look at the boards at different times including the evening when it is dark. You will see that as the light changes so will the appearance of the paint.

The best way to test the paint is with the furniture and accessories that you will be using in your room. Other colors that are in your room will also have an affect on how the paint appears. Do not be afraid of color. It really adds life to a room. Now get your paint samples together and try it!
