Handyman St Charles MO – Finding the Perfect Color 

Choosing the right color can be a very difficult decision. There are so many colors to choose from and finding the right one to fit your taste, coordinate with your furniture and decors can be daunting.

Here are some tips that can help you narrow down those color choices and make the process a bit easier.

First, decide on the overall style of your home that you want to have. Is it traditional, modern, rustic, contemporary, eclectic, or other?

There are many places to find inspirations online, such as design sites like www.houzz.com, or paint company sites like www.sherwinwilliams.com, etc. Find the style that you feel like you can enjoy living with all year round.

Pinpointing the Personality of a Room 

Then decide on the energy level for the specific room or area that you want to work with. Typically, bedrooms are more relaxing. Living room, family room, and dining rooms are more active. Vibrant colors bring more energy to a room, while neutral and muted colors has more calming effects.

1. Go for an elegant look: For a more elegant look go with a neutral color. Grays, beiges and whites are classic colors that can give your living room or bedroom an elegant look which you can be proud of.

Neutral colored walls also make decorating your room much easier since they coordinate well with many different color families. Not all neutrals are made equal. A great idea would be to select a neutral color that goes well with both cool and warm tones.

A well designed color, such as Sherwin Williams’s color of the year for 2017 Poised Taupe (link: https://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/color-forecast/color-of-the-year), is formulated to go well with many different colors and textures. Check different paint brands and products to find the one that works best for you.

2. Choose vibrant colors: Want to spice up your kitchen or living room? A great way to bring some energy to any room is by using bright color.

Bright or intense shades of red, yellow, blue and green can make any room pop. But remember to use these strong colors sparingly. Use no more than three colors in an area can make the area look less cluttered and more streamlined.

3. Make it flexible: Another great way to use vibrant color is to keep the walls neutral and use decors, such as lamps, pillows, sculptures, etc., to add that pop of color. It also gives you flexibility to change out the color scheme of your room quickly without having to repaint the walls.

4. Simple color theories: All colors look great if coordinated well. Paint displays in stores are normally arranged by color families and color intensities, which makes it easier to choose coordinating colors. For example, once you selected a wall color, find a color that is two or three shades darker. This darker color can be an excellent accent color to use for an accent wall, a border, or even a pillow or rug to pull the room together.
