Picking the perfect paint colour for your home can be a daunting task. With so many shades, hues and tints to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to pick the perfect paint colour for your home.

It’s important to bear in mind that the paint colour chosen can affect the overall ‘feel’ of the room; warm, cool, dramatic or subdued – each colour has its own emotional benefits. To ensure the right colour for the right room, there are a few things to consider.

The first step to selecting the perfect hue for your space is to determine the current lighting situation. Natural light can make a dramatic impact to the intensity and appearance of paint colours. Brighter colours often appear more vivid when exposed to natural light, whereas a darker paint can benefit from the warm reflection off wood and other materials found in the room.

Secondly, consider the mood of the room. Are you looking for a calming environment? Or are you after a bright, energizing area? Neutral shades, such as soft grey and beige, provide a warm, comforting look, while bolder colours, such as reds and oranges, are powerful and energizing.

Finally, consider the other elements that will be in the room. If there is a lot of existing furniture, choose a paint shade that complements the current pieces while allowing a little contrast. You may also want to choose a shade that will let you achieve your desired look and feel by adding accent pieces.

By considering how the paint colour will interact with natural light, the desired mood of the room and the existing furniture, you can ensure you select a paint hue that will bring your entire look together. 

Though the process may feel a little intimidating – choosing the right paint colour is the foundation of a room’s identity. With a bit of patience and the right research, you can find the perfect shade to make your home feel and look like the perfect place.
