Choosing the Perfect Paint Color

Wakefield model home at TulllamoreWhen it comes to the perfect home, you have your Pinterest board to help you figure out exactly what you want. But when it comes to paint colors, do you spend as much time worrying about colors as you do on certain finishes in your home? Essex Homes would like to give you some tips for determining the perfect pallet to personalize your home.

Before planning your color scheme, take into account what the room will be used for. If the room will be used for social gatherings, you may want to make it a neutral or bright color to give off the the right amount of energy. Also, take into consideration the amount of windows a room has, because natural lighting may affect the paint color differently from room to room.

Always remember to test your color choice before using it all over. This is a big mistake that many people make when painting their new home. This is also a chance to go outside your comfort zone and test colors that you normally wouldn’t think of trying. This will help determine the different hues you choose to use in the home, as well as get a feel for the mood it will set for the room.

If you’re looking for a more dramatic appearance in your home, try using different paint finishes for a more textured appearance on a wall. Don’t be afraid to use more than one color; creating a monochromatic scheme in a room is a very modern look that can look very elegant as well. An accent wall is a great way to try a color on for size and will give a room a more dimensional feel.
