How to Choose the Right Paint Color
Author: Art Van
One of the quickest ways to change a room is to change the paint color, but choosing a color can be intimidating. Here are three tips from the experts at Benjamin Moore paints that will help make your decision a little easier:
- Find Inspiration. You can come up with ideas by creating a portfolio of what appeals to you: a favorite painting, the color of your baby’s eyes, an unforgettable vacation in Mexico or that great hike in the Grand Canyon.
- Define the Mood. Is there a mood or theme that you would like to achieve in a particular space? Do you want a restful feel in the bedroom, or an energizing feel to the family room? The mood will lay the groundwork on the desired visual impact of a chosen paint color palette.
- Use Key Elements in Your Home. Take stock of your home’s key elements. The color of your flooring anchors the room and can impact the color on the wall due to reflections. Furnishings also play an important role as they often “suggest” a coordinating color scheme that ties everything together.
