3 Important Questions to Ask Before Painting a Room
Make sure that the other family members approve of the colors, too
Choosing the right colors and perfect shades for your space can be a bit tricky—especially if you don't know which ones work best with your interiors. If you are fully committed to painting your home or room, here are a few important questions that you need to consider.
Does the color complement my furniture?
According to the psychology of color, the shades of your home’s interiors can affect your mood and overall well-being. Before picking a nice shade for your walls, assess if it suits your interiors. If you already have bold and vibrant pieces, you may opt for a neutral shade to create a balanced look.
What color would I like to see when I wake up and before I go to sleep?
It’s all about what shade relaxes you and lifts up your mood. Blues and greens are often associated with nature and relaxation because it lends a calming vibe to any space. If you've always wanted a spa-like ambiance, you may opt for these shades. If you want to feel energized and cheery, how about opting for bright yellow walls in the kitchen? It will surely help start your day right as you prepare meals for the family.
Do the other family members like the color, too?
Planning to paint your living room or dining area with your favorite color? Ask for inputs from the other family members. Some may find it too striking or plain. Make the project a group effort by always asking for their ideas and tips.
RL Tip: Don’t forget to test your paint first to see if it works well with the finish of your walls. You also need to check how it looks during day and night. Click here for more tips.
