A Great Way to Choose a Color You Can Live With in Your Home

Some people like bold or bright colors in their homes and some do not which is okay as well. When it comes to deciding what to paint a room or the exterior, how do you choose a color that is something you know you will like for a while? Here are a few tips for selecting a color you can live with:

Use sample cans

It’s quite difficult to choose the correct color for let’s say your living space or bedroom with hundreds of shades of every color to choose from. Some people boldly go and get the paint without trying it on a wall in the space and that is perfectly fine.  On the other hand, there are people that want to make sure they like the color on more than a paint swatch before getting started. It is great to purchase a couple of sample cans and paint a section of your wall to compare the colors under the lighting conditions in the space.

Trust your instincts

The best way to figure out what is best for you when it comes to color is to trust your gut. If you believe a deep wine color will make you feel happy in your space, go for it. On the other hand, if you would be much more comfortable with shades of gray or white, don’t force yourself to live with color just because you think you should.

Embrace an inspirational piece

One way to choose a color for your space is to look at your favorite art or furniture pieces. What colors stand out? You always can pick one of those colors or a complementary shade to choose paint for the room. It’s a great way to incorporate your favorite accessories into the complete design.

Follow community guidelines

Don’t try to oppose the system when painting the outside of your home. If you don’t have a homeowner’s association, go to town with your bold color choices. However, if there are covenants in place, it’s best to review the requirements and stick to them to avoid fines or long-term problems.
