Choosing A Paint Color 

Choosing a paint color can be a fun and exciting process.  However without some help, it can also be overwhelming.  Our team is the experts in color consultations and we can sit down with you as a part of our estimating process to make sure you get the perfect colors.  Here are the steps we go through to guide you in choosing the perfect paint colors:

  1. Purpose.  We work with you to understand the use of each room and your goals for painting.   Thinking about the function of the room is important so that the right mood and feeling can be expressed in color. For example, cool colors like blues and greens are calming and relaxing, while warm colors like reds and oranges are energizing and invigorating.
  2. Lighting. Lighting can affect how a color looks in a room. Natural light and artificial light can make a color appear different. It’s important to consider the amount and type of light that the room receives not just throughout the day, but seasonally as well.
  3. Palette.  Our final step is determining the color scheme.   Whether you are working on a single room or a whole house, we need to consider the existing colors in the room, including furniture, flooring, and decor.  The wall paint needs to either complement or contrast any existing colors.

Our recommendation is to not rush the process of choosing the colors of your next painting project. Let us sit down with you and understand your needs to make sure your walls will still be bringing you joy for years to come.
