The color of your paint has an amazing effect on your interior space, and adding new color to a remove is the cheapest way to update your home.

Color is great for changing the look, feel and out perception of our interior space, turning is spacious or cosy, cool or energetic.

Steps to finding the perfect paint color for your interior space

Color can change our perception of the space around us, turning it cool and energetic, spacious or cozy. There are three key steps that can help you with the process of color selection:

Inspiration is all around you, find it

The best way to come up with ideas is to find out what appeals to your most: Do you have a favorite color in mind already, do you have a favorite painting or place you vacation often?

Do you like multiple colors, a single color, or maybe particular tints or shades of a specific color? Do you like them muted or bold?

Looking around you for inspiration is important to help narrow down your selection.

Also, BEHR has a huge color pallet of paint colors that you can preview. Colors can be separated by collections, categories and color families.

Setting the mood of the space

Is there a theme or mood you would like to set in the space? Do you want an energizing feel to the living room or restful calm feel in the bedroom? The mood you set will lay the foundation for the desired impact of the color palette you’ve chosen.

Be aware of surrounding colors before selecting

Think about all of the items in your home that provide color like floors, carpeting, furniture etc. The floor is your anchor to the room and can dramatically impact colors on the walls by the carpet color reflecting on the wall. Furniture colors also play a role in finding the perfect colors for your walls. These items are not easily replaced and any interior designer will tell you that these pieces help coordinate the color scheme. For example your antique table that your mother gave you wouldn’t be thrown away just because it does match the wall color rather the wall color would be changed to accent the table.
