360° Painting 101: How To Choose The Right Paint Color

Choosing the right paint color for your home can be a difficult task. That’s why our painting professionals work with industry leaders like Sherwin-Williams to become experts in the products they use in your home or office. These tips are crucial to decide the best color for you home:

Tie the color into the rest of your home.

If you want to paint just the living room without disturbing the entire color scheme of your home, using a paint palette can be useful in a situation like this. If you’d like to coordinate with the existing colors in your home, dig up old paint samples to see if you can find the names of the original colors. Or, if you’d like a whole new look, decide on a palette for the whole house. Paint palettes do the hard work of coordinating colors for you – take advantage of the online palettes to confidently choose a color scheme. Search the Sherwin-Williams “collections” for ways that paint can pull together your home.

Accent an already-existing color in your home.

If you’re not “starting from scratch” and instead are trying to match the already-existing patterns, colors, and furniture in your home, choosing a color could be tricky. Fortunately, you can match colors from fabrics or even paintings using the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap Visualizer. You can even digitally upload a photo of the room you would like to paint and see what it would look like with your chosen color scheme. This takes the “guess work” out of painting and ensures that the end product is exactly what you envisioned.

Update your home with a new trend.

Not everyone is an interior design expert – not everyone needs to be! That’s why the major paint and design companies spend the entire year working with a team of experts to come up with their color trends every year. These palettes are often designed to reflect a mood or an attitude and represent the best in the paint company. Sherwin-Williams Color Of The Year is “Canyon Clay” and they built several complimentary palettes around it. Visit our blog to learn more about the 2019 trends.
