How Best To Choose Paint Colours.

How Best To Choose Paint Colours.

When it comes to decorating, choosing paint color can really be a challenge. While you may feel that there are so many choices you're bound to find the right one, you may end up feeling that there are so many choices you don't know where to start!

The tips here will really help you if you feel stumped by this important choice. After all, the paint colour will set the tone for the room.

Be Patient

It's great to collect paint chips when planning a room, but hold off making final choices until you've developed an overall room scheme. Paint is available in literally an infinite array of colours and is the most versatile element of your room decor, the easiest to change, and the least expensive. Get ideas but make the final decision after rugs, wallpaper, and fabrics are finalized.

Coordinate Decorating Samples

When you go shopping, you'll need to refer to your fabric, carpet, tile, wallpaper, and trim samples constantly. Be sure to take everything with you wherever you go. No tellng where you might see something wonderful.

Really Study the Colours

You'll find clues about the underlying tones of different shades of a colour on a full sample strip of coordinated colours. Even if you're not even considering using a darker tone, look at all the colors carefully. Decide if the family of colours is the direction you're headed with your colour selection.

Tried and True Formula for Colours

If you're working with a print fabric, you'll probably be happier if you select the coordinating wall paint colour from the background of the print. Use the deeper or brighter tones for accents throughout the room or adjacent spaces..
