If you go to a paint store today you are likely to find literally thousands of house colors to choose from. How can you possibly put together a good color scheme for your house with so much to choose from. You will literally find 100 shades of white, 30-40 shades of yellow and hundreds more.
Choosing House Colors need not be so complicated. With a few simple things to remember you should be able to find yourself a wonderful color scheme that looks great and goes perfectly with your home.
Find Your Style
The first thing you need to do before choosing your house colors is to find your style. This is easy, go online and start searching through home websites, use Google’s image search, look at house magazines. Maybe you find that you have one overall style that you really love, maybe you want to have a different style in every room, either way is fine, just find a style of house colors that you really enjoy.
Create A Theme
One thing I really don’t care for is when people choose house colors they like but it does not go with their furniture or decorations what so ever. The paint in a room is more easily changed than the decorations and furniture, so try to choose house colors that will compliment your furniture. Your furniture should be the starting point in any room.
Try Out Samples
The cheap samples of house colors at paint stores serve a real purpose, try before you buy. Sure they may cost $3-5 but if you spend $50 and 6 hours painting a room and don’t like it, then you will be wishing you had spent the $5 and given the color a shot. Do not try to figure out your house colors from the tiny paper color swatches, you need to see it on your wall. Paint at least a 5’x5’ area to get a real sense of the color and how it will look in your house.
With the thousands of different house colors available it is easy to second guess yourself when choosing your paint colors. Once you have made your decision, stick with it and don’t worry about it. Even if you don’t like the color right away, stick with it for 3 months and see if you still don’t like it. It is easy to be unsure of your colors, just don’t waste your time painting and repainting your room over and over.
Hopefully these tips have helped you in your quest to choose the perfect house colors for your home.
