Are you STILL thinking about painting your walls with color?
Many people are afraid to make leap from 'builder's beige' to a more daring color choice. What holds you back? Are you afraid color will be too strong? Not match your furniture? Or you'll become tired of it and have to start over again?
While you're debating work involved you are missing out on one of basic elements of design that can change entire look of your room for under $50. Your tired furniture can become new again and a mismatched room can have designer flare! So, how do you choose right color?
The first recommendation is to choose a tinted neutral. Why is that? Instead of choosing rich, deep colors for your first project, you will likely feel more comfortable with a neutral such as beige or gray which will not date room or create a jarring palate that you will easily tire of.
However, when you go to your local home improvement store you will be faced with a sea of color swatches - hundreds of versions of basic beige and gray to choose from. So before you go, consider these steps to choosing right color for you.
If you like feel of a warm and cozy room - think of fireplaces, brown leather and sunsets - then you'll want to start with a beige tone.
