Useful Tips on Choosing Beautiful Room Colors

According to color psychology, color accounts for 60% of our response to a place or to an object. It is a major factor in whether we find a place appealing or uncomfortable. That’s why it’s important to choose the right paint color for every room in your home. Castino Painting and Home Services is the leading painting company in our local area and we can help you transform the look of your home. Here are some tips for picking paint colors:
choosing room colors

  • Start with Painting Something Small – We suggest experimenting with a small room or accent wall first before starting a room painting project. To help you get started, choose a favorite color from a rug, artwork, dishes, furniture, or any other accent piece. Don’t be afraid to experiment. You can try strong and vivid colors, deep neutrals, or accent colors. Try things and imagine how the color scheme will look like if you apply it to the rest of the room.
  • Use the Color Wheel – As a painting and stucco expert, we recommend using a color wheel. It is a great tool that will help you see possible color combinations. Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are called complementary colors, which look intense and harmonious next to each other. You can try complementary color schemes in your room for visual appeal. A color wheel can also help you determine color temperature. Colors on the red-violet side are cool while colors on the yellow-orange side are warm.
  • Consider Mood – When choosing a color, make sure to think about the mood you want to evoke in a room. For example, do you want the bedroom to feel dramatic and intimate or restful and soothing? Stronger colors evoke drama while neutrals and cool colors make a room feel serene and quiet. For living and dining rooms, it’s a choice between warmth and formality. Blues and neutrals feel formal while bright and warm colors make the rooms feel warm and stimulating.
