When it comes to painting a room nothing is more important than color choice. You can have the perfect trim techniques and the best texturing but if your paint color is off, or if it seems to assault the senses rather than soothe the soul, nothing else matters. Though choice of color scheme should be left to personal preference, we often see the same common mistakes made when choosing paint schemes that give homeowners a result that just wasn’t quite what they were hoping for. As interior house painters in Northern Colorado, we advise our clientele to avoid the following mistakes when choosing paint colors for their homes:
- Neutrals, neutrals everywhere. Creams, beiges and grays do little to play off each other or bring out the best in its counterpart. Consider adding contrast to trim or accent walls utilizing a true, bold color that calls attention to your neutral choice and breathes life into a room.
- Vamping up the rainbow effect. Where we just said liven up neutrals with color: so can the opposite be said about the use of too much color. Too much color can add too much excitement leaving your walls more circus-y than you would have hoped for.
- Playing matchy-match with fabrics. Using an upholstered pillow as a starting point for a room theme is a good idea. Pulling a color from that fabric to match wall color? Not so great. Those textiles will prove way to bright and strong on your walls. Choose a grayed-down version of that hue you love for a room that doesn’t overwhelm.
