Narrow Down A Color Scheme

With all the paint colors out there, narrowing down a color scheme according to your desired palette will help you efficiently decide which colors will look best for your home’s interior.

Consider Lighting

Lighting can have a huge effect on how a color looks in a room. Different colors will look different in different lighting such as natural light compared to LED lighting, so it’s important to consider the lighting of the room before making your final decision.

Pay Attention To Decor

Are you painting a fully furnished room, or completely redoing the space? It is important to consider what furniture and decorations are or will be in the room to ensure your paint color is complementary. Matching your paint to the decor of the room will help create a tidy and seamless look.

Test and Experiment

Using paint swatches on the walls can help you decide if the color fits the room. Leave the swatches up for a few days to see how the paint looks in all kinds of light from the day, as it can look much different at midday than it does in the evening. You can also experiment with swatch colors you are unsure of and make a more informed decision when you see the color up on your wall.

It is important to find the colors that reflect your style and enhance the overall look and feel of your home. Give PaintPro a call for paint suggestions and rely on us as the premier painting service company in Austin, Texas, for all your painting needs!
