Are you terrified of making the wrong choice when it comes to selecting paint colors? Are you biting your nails over choosing the exact “right” choice of neutral for your walls? Confused about accent walls? According to the experts at Bill Engler Painting you are not alone and the hardest part of preparing your home for a face lift is choosing the right paint color. The choices of colors are endless, and with no seemingly set rules the selections can be confusing but don’t give up, the knowledgeable experts at Bill Engler Painting have prepared a list of tips and tricks that everyone can use to help you achieve the perfect balance in finding the perfect shade of paint for your home.
What Color is Best for Ceilings?
White is the traditional choice for ceilings and there is a reason that this is the case. White doesn’t show imperfections the way that darker shades are prone to do. Picking a color other than white certainly adds interest and providing you follow a few simple rules you can successfully step out side the box when it comes to the color of your ceiling. If the ceiling color is darker than the walls, your ceiling will appear lower; if the color is lighter then it will appear higher. The skilled artisans at Bill Engler Painting recommend choosing a warm white or if you want to custom tint your ceiling based on your wall color the best formula is take your wall color and mix it with between 25 to 50 percent white to lighter up the color. To add graphic interest consider taking a room painted in neutrals and turning it up a notch by adding coordinated colors such as yellow and white stripes on the ceiling.
Warm or Cool Neutrals
Neutrals are considered the perfect choice for your home and while they are very versatile, it doesn’t mean that they are completely foolproof. Beige for example can fall into two categories, warm and cool. The various undertones can make them look gray, green or gold. To choose the right shade, the professionals at Bill Engler Painting recommend viewing your sample colors against your other furnishings and accents along with varied lighting conditions.
What Paint Colors Make a Room Look Bigger and Brighter?
The skilled painters and design experts at Bill Engler Painting recommend keeping it light and bright when designing a color palette. Lighter colors such as warm shades of white, soft sage and pale beiges with a hint of yellow can give darker spaces warmth. If the room is smaller in size, consider selecting a color that will pop such as orange, aqua and bright green. In a room that receives large amounts of sun, you can go for a fresh, crisp look by using colors such as teal or terracotta. Lighting in the late afternoon and early evening can create varying moods within the same room
