Paint: Overcoming the Fear…

Most major decorating projects begin with painting the walls. And this is where people usually cringe with fear or begin to feel overwhelmed. And this reaction is totally understandable. Selecting a paint color is a huge commitment, and quite expensive whether you choose to do it yourself or have a professional do it for you.

Perhaps these tips can assist on your next venture:

  • How Helpful is a Swatch? Wall color appears paler on a small swatch versus on the wall. Color on one wall will take possession of a room. If you paint all four walls; the color reflects back on itself, multiplying the affect. You can’t see this on a swatch, so keep this in mind.
  • The Effect Factor – What other colors are present in the room? The furniture and floor, the light… So many things can effect the color of the paint once it’s on the wall; even the colors outdoors. Take this into consideration when choosing a color.
  • Sample it out – Most paint companies offer tester size paint in order to give you an idea of how it will look once you paint the wall. Take time to compare colors on the wall. Consider this: the color will be on your wall for a long time (hopefully), so invest as much time possible to ensure it’s a color you can live with.
