How to Choose Interior Paint Colors for Your Home

Updated: Jan 5

There are several things to consider when choosing paint colors for the interior of your home:

1. Consider the size and layout of the room: Lighter colors can make a small room feel larger and more open, while darker colors can make a large room feel more cozy and intimate.

2. Think about the lighting in the room: Natural light, artificial light, and the time of day can all affect how an interior paint color looks in a room. It's a good idea to test out paint colors by painting a sample on the wall or ordering a peel & stick and observing how it looks at different times of day.

3. Consider the furniture and decor in the room: Choose paint colors that complement your furniture and decor, rather than competing with it.

4. Think about the mood you want to create: Different colors can evoke different emotions and create different moods. For example, warm colors like red and yellow can create a cozy, welcoming feeling, while cool colors like blue and green can create a calming, relaxing atmosphere.

5. Take your time: Don't be afraid to try out multiple paint colors before making a decision. It's better to take the time to find the perfect color than to rush and end up with a color that you're not happy with.
