Choosing interior painting colors can be one of the most overwhelming parts of any painting project. There are literally thousands - if not tens of thousands - of interior painting colors to choose from.
Each paint manufacturer has its own deck of color selections, separated down to the faintest hues, each with exotic or naturalistic or elegant sounding names. The sheer choice and variety can be overwhelming even for a decorating professional, let alone for the do-it-yourself homeowner.
There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the right interior painting colors for your space.
The use of the space, for example. A living room has a different use and purpose than a game room, say, or a bedroom. Size and shape and lighting make a difference as well. And the mood you want for the space.
What about your style – modern or Victorian or farmhouse?
And personality? We certainly want your taste and personality to come out in your color selections, right? Are you energetic or relaxed, creative or earthy?
If that seems like a lot of things to consider, it is. But take a deep breath, because it’s not nearly as intimidating as it sounds.
