Home Renovation Series: Choosing The Right Paint Color For Your Home

Are you looking to update your home and give it a refresh? Painting your home is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to give your home a brand new look. However, painting your home isn't as easy as you think. You may think you could just grab your color chart and hold it against the wall and just pick the color that you think looks best for your wall. From my own experience, it's not that simple. 

Once I saw the color I wanted from the color chart, I asked for a sample of the paint from the store. The next thing I did was to paint just a small part of my wall and when it dried, I realized it wasn't the right one. It took me four tries to get the right color. Yes, FOUR TIMES. After three attempts of trial and error using the color chart, I was able to find the right paint color by getting the help of a professional. How did I do that?  In my case, I took a chip of paint from a hidden part of my wall (which had the color I wanted) and gave it to the professionals which were able to mix the color for me. On my fourth try, I finally got the right paint color. This is a great start before you start painting it all.

Here things to consider when choosing the right paint color for your home:

  • Don't rely on the paint color chart.
  • Get a professional's help.
  • Get a sample paint color and put it up on your wall to make sure it's the right one.
  • Consider if the paint color goes well with your lighting, what is around them, and how it would look throughout your home. 
  • Making sure that your furniture and your new wall color will complement each other is key. It's important to make sure that it all comes together with your current furnishings.

We hope this helps you make sure you pick the right paint color for your home. Painting your home is a great way to give it a new and cleaner look. Take a little time testing the colors to make sure you get the look that you love. Browsing on Pinterest is a also great place to start to look for popular colors and to see if there's some inspiration there for you. When selling your home, giving the home a fresh paint is an inexpensive way to make your home shine.
