How To Determine Which Interior Paint Color Is Right For Your Home
Whether you are interested in painting your living room, master bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen, make sure to consider the following factors to help you better determine which paint colors will look the best.
Consider The Function of The Room
When you have noticed the signs it’s time to repaint your interior walls, a good starting point in determining which new paint color will be best is thinking about the room’s function. Do you want to brighten up your kitchen and make it appear even larger than it is? Think of what it would look like with neutral shades — such as white or beige — which will help reflect light better. Is your goal to make your living room a spot for hosting gatherings? Consider using bold colors to add some lively energy to the room. If you are wanting to transform your bedroom into a more relaxing and calming escape, than cooler shades, like blues, greens, and purples may be what you need to help you achieve that.
By first considering the function of the room, you’ll be able to get a better idea of which hues and shades will fit best and which ones won’t.
Think About Natural Light
It is important to consider the amount of natural light the room you are interested in painting receives. Natural light can significantly impact the paint color you choose for a room. Without considering how much light a room receives, what you see initially may not be what you get. While light-colored walls may look great in your kitchen when natural light is filling the space, the absence of the light at night could make the paint color look duller than it actually is! This is caused by different light temperatures bringing out the undertones of a paint color you might not initially notice when looking at the different color samples.
Try Some Trending Colors
If you aren’t sure which colors will look best in a certain room in your home, why not consider the popular options that other homeowners are choosing. It seems like every year there seems to be new interior paint color trends, and considering these go-to colors or shades for bathrooms, kitchens, and other rooms in your home can help spark inspiration for your own home. Currently, soft neutral, moody pastels, and tinted greys seem to be some of the most popular interior paint colors.
Gain Inspiration from Existing Decor
We advise against choosing a paint color for a room and then deciding furniture and decor to match it. This can be a huge waste of time and money. Instead, you should use the existing decor and items in the room you are interested in painting to determine which color will fit the space best. Picking a wall color based off the room’s furniture, rug design, or other decor-related factors, will help make the room look and feel more cohesive. Plus, it will save you from the frustration of not being able to find decor that coordinates with your new wall color.
