You already have the roller ready but not a clear idea of the color you want. Charleston SC painters recommends that you don’t rush, and you will avoid mistakes. In addition to a matter of taste, the ideal color for space depends on other factors, such as the size of the room, the light, the style of the furniture, textiles, and accessories or the paint finish itself. It is also good to take into account technological advances, which will make it much easier to choose the right shade. Learn, in 8 easy steps, everything you need to know before painting your house:
1.Light And Color Are Inseparable
The shade you choose must be appropriate to the amount of light in the space. For example, although bright rooms can afford the use of dark tones, the lightest ones will best reflect natural light, giving the space greater clarity and visual breadth. Choose those deep colors in less bright spaces and not very large dimensions.
2. Glossy Or Matte: The Paint Finish Is Decisive. Matte
Paints hide wall defects very well and are more polished, but they are also more difficult to clean.
For its part, satin or shiny surfaces reflect light and visually expand the space.
3. The Chosen Color Must ‘Get Along’ With The Rest Of The Furniture, Fabrics, And Accessories
It is easy to fall in love with a trendy color, but before you go shopping for a few liters, think together. Otherwise, you will be forced to buy new furniture … or to repaint in another color.
In general, if the pieces of furniture are colorful and in dark tones, opt for soft colors on the walls, which do not compete with them. On the contrary, if it is neutral furniture or a minimalist aesthetic, a prominent tone on the walls will give the room more personality.
5. Before Choosing A Color, Define What Goes (And What Does Not Go) With You.
Sometimes, we know that we do not want to continue with that white style that has accompanied us for decades, but we do not know what would suit our home. Get inspired, investigate and, when you have a selection of colors and possible application ideas, imagine how they would look on our walls, although without putting a single drop of paint on them (for the moment).
Make Use Of ‘Virtual Painting.’
Augmented reality technology allows you to ‘paint’ the walls and see the result in real-time, visualizing the colors on your mobile phone or tablet, and changing them until you find the one you like.
