A Few Tips for Getting Paint Colors Right

Seek Out Inspiration

Yes, we just mentioned that sometimes inspiration can lead you astray, but our advice is to really look at a photo of a room you like and figure out why it all works together. For example, a black room on an interior decorating website can look great, but it might be because that rooms also has a ton of natural light. If yours doesn’t it can start to feel like a dungeon.

Consider the Mood

What mood do you want your room to evoke? Keep in mind that colors like blue and green often feel more relaxing whereas yellows, oranges, and reds can help you to feel energized. There’s an exception to every rule, of course, but knowing the mood you are going for in a room can go a long way towards helping you to get the color just right.

Give ColorSnap a Try

We’ve talked about the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap Color Visualizer before, but boy is it helpful! This amazing tool allows users to upload photos of their projects to change up colors. In other words, it’s like painting a room without having to actually paint a room. This is perfect for considering your options, narrowing your choices down, or realizing that you just outright dislike something you thought you might enjoy.
