Part of planning for your new remodeling project is picking a paint color. There are thousands of paint colors out there today so how do you know what’s right for your home?
If you have ever found yourself staring at a wall marked up with dozens of sample colors, yet still no closer to finding the right shade, you have come to the right place. In this three-part series, we will be discussing ways to get over your paint-color paralysis, get inspired to find color all around you and, finally, pull together a whole-house palette. Let’s get started.
Know which hues are easier to work with. If you’ve had bum luck choosing paint colors in the past, it could be that you were making things harder on yourself than was necessary. Some colors, like pink, are especially difficult to get just right. Neutral hues like gray, beige and soft browns, as well as pale, silvery blues are quite forgiving.
It’s OK to not have colorful paint. Give yourself permission to skip the color deliberations and just go with white. It’s fresh, classic and easy, and it goes with everything. If you’ve been putting off choosing paint colors for years, perhaps it’s time to let yourself off the hook.
