Paint color has a heavy effect on individuals. The general marketing and advertising that we are exposed to every day is evidence of this fact. It’s important to consider the color spectrum and the ways colors affect mood and temperament before diving into your next interior paint project. A lot goes into making a house feel like a home, and color is an important part of that. Here are a few things to think about when deciding what paint colors will most make you feel at home:
Warmer colors, such as red, orange and yellow generally are associated with feelings of energy, ease and positivity. Many residential exteriors opt for a yellow hue to give off a sunny disposition. Orange is sometimes a very effective hue for an interior paint project, especially when used in an accent wall. It has the ability to add cohesiveness to a room, especially in a general living room space.
Cooler hues are some of the most traditional options for interior paint. Colors such as blue and green have long been staples in living rooms and kitchens, and evoke a feeling a comfort and home for many individuals. For a more modern approach to your current interior paint project, consider addding a gray tint to one of your favorite cool colors.
Orange isn’t the new black – neutrals are! The color minimalist loves a good selection of neutral paint choices. Don’t just think of white when you think of neutral color for your interior paint selections. Grays and even variations of beige can be highly effective in making your home feel comfortable. Paired with an intriguing tile, these options can work really well in a bathroom or a kitchen.
For some, a more eclectic color scheme does the job of making a house feel like a home. If this is you, then darker shades of some of your favorite colors would be a great addition to your interior paint renovation. A darker gray or navy could actually have a very strong effect on an exterior brick painting project. Also, darker colors can be used in trim or as an accent wall to give a dramatic effect. As counterintuitive as it may seem, using a dark color in a small room can increase interest, and if paired with the right accessories, make the room seem larger than it really is.
