Painting is one of those home renovation tasks that homeowners can tackle for themselves but having to cover everything to protect from paint drips, remove electrical outlet plates, tape off trim, reach overhead to paint a ceiling, or get into hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, can be tiring and frustrating work. Why not let the professional painting contractors at RCT handle that headache for you? And provide you with beautiful, newly freshened-up walls, trim or more.
4 Tips to Select the Right Paint Colour
Choosing a paint colour can be an incredibly difficult task. Selecting the type of sheen you want is hard enough (gloss, semi-gloss, eggshell, etc.) but then trying to determine the proper shade from the millions of colour choices can be quite daunting. Here are a few tips to help you with your selection process.
1. Consider Your Lighting
It is very important to take the lighting of the room you plan to paint into consideration. Incandescent light shows very differently than fluorescent light or natural light from a window. Your lighting can make a blue shade look greenish, it can make a bright red look dark and crimson. Understanding your lighting will help you in your paint selection.
2. Determine Your Room’s Desired Mood
Knowing the mood you want to convey in your room is an important part of choosing the right paint colour. A bold red or purple is going to come off dramatic and daring, so if you are looking for relaxing and cozy you would want to steer clear of those hues. Where a light blue, or green can be quite calming. Speaking to a professional interior painter can help you when making these decisions.
3. Paint A Small Test Area First
Paint colours behave differently in different lighting, when placed next to different colours, or when different paint finishes are used. To make absolutely sure the colour is what you want, have a qualified painting contractor paint a small accent wall, or patch that will allow you to see the colour from multiple angles and in different lighting scenarios.
4. Google Your Paint Choice
A paint chip, even an oversized one, is still a relatively small thing to use to determine the correct colour choice for your home. Sometimes seeing the paint out in a real-life situation is the best way to determine if you like it. If you have found a colour you think will work simply type the brand name and colour name into Google and check out the image section to see examples of the colour on other people’s walls. It could end up looking very different than the little swatch leads you to believe. This strategy also works on Pinterest.
