Choosing Paint Colors

Paint color has the power to transform a room, setting the mood, defining the atmosphere, and expressing your personal style. But with endless options to choose from, finding the perfect hue can feel like an overwhelming task. Here are some of the things we consider when choosing paint:

The Space and It’s Purpose

What mood do we want the space to evoke? Do we want the bedroom to be a calming and serene space? Do we want the office to be dark and moody? Do we want the kitchen to be bright and airy? Choose colors based on what you want the space to feel like.

Gather Inspiration and Test

Pinterest is a great space to go for inspiration. Save anything that makes you feel the same way you want your space to feel and notice the color schemes. Go through your paint chips and gather samples, test them on your wall. Look at them during different times of the day because they can often look different based on the type of light coming through the window.

Consider the Finishes

Consider the finish of the paint as it can impact the final look and feel of the room. Matte finishes offer a subtle, understated elegance, while glossier finishes reflect more light and can be easier to clean.
