Tips on Finding the Perfect Paint Colors for Your Home | D & D Painting-1There is no denying the fact that paint color can have a big impact on the exterior and interior of your home. It not only impacts the way your home looks but the way it feels as well. Being surrounded by colors you love can make it more enjoyable to be at home. Choosing colors that fit with the latest trends will allow you to create an environment that feels modern. The paint on the exterior of your home can help it fit in with the aesthetic of the neighborhood or stand out from the crowd – it all depends on your goal. Whatever your goals are for the look of your home, the paint colors you choose can help. The question is, how do you find the perfect paint colors for your home? It can seem overwhelming to have to decide between thousands of paint colors. However, by following a few simple tips you can quickly narrow that number down and discover paint options that you love. 

Decide what type of aesthetic you want

Start by choosing a goal for the overall look of your home. If you live in a historic house, for example, you may want to only consider exterior paint colors that align with the overall look of the neighborhood. If your primary goal is to have a modern looking home, start by looking at the color palette options from Kelly-Moore either online or in store. Kelly-Moore has color palettes that are put together professionally that you can use to create the modern feel you want. You can also focus on the way you want your home to feel. For example, some colors are considered ‘warm’ colors while others are considered ‘cool’ colors. Warm colors help to create a cozy home environment while cool colors can help your home feel breezy and open. Once you decide on the overarching aesthetic goals for your home, you can start exploring colors that fit within the category you chose. 

Utilize the various tools available from paint manufacturers

There are a number of free tools that you can use to help you decide which colors are right for your home. Kelly-Moore, for example, has a tool called myColorVisualizer that allows you to upload a picture of your home or room and try out different paint colors without ever picking up a brush. This tool can help you quickly narrow down options and create a shortlist. 

Put some paint samples on the wall

The light in your house, the color of your trim, and the furniture you have can all impact how a paint color actually looks on the wall. Once you have your list of colors narrowed down to just a few, it is a good idea to get samples and put them on the wall. Painting a three foot by three foot section of your wall will likely be enough space for you to get a real sense of how the color will look.

You also have the option of bringing in professional help with color selection for your home. The pros at D&D Painting have years’ worth of experience helping homeowners achieve the look they want for their homes.
