Mistakes To Avoid When Picking Wall Paint Colours

 Not using samples

It is essential to use shade cards and put samples to test. The lighting in the room is the most important factor while finding a shade that complements your space. Lighting changes throughout the day, so it is recommended to look with the lights turned on.

Choose color for multiple rooms carefully

It is important to choose shades that work well together for multiple rooms, especially ones that are adjacent. For giving a more cohesive look for the rooms, plan ahead and pick wall paint colours close together on the colour spectrum.

Choosing too many colours in one room

If you plan to opt for bright, bold wall colours, let the rest of the room be lighter. Similarly, if you have selected a more neutral colour for the wall, then let the decor and furnishings in the room be in contrasting colours resulting in an effortless put-together vibe for the rooms. To pick several colours for room wall paint might be tempting, but stick to at most three colours like one accent and two neutral shades.

Following trends blindly

The colours you live with should be colours you love. Even if you absolutely love the latest trends, it is best to use it in small doses, that can be changed easily if you outgrow it. Because the colour on the wall paint of your home is much more expensive and difficult to change. So find a colour that you can live with for years to come. 

Not factoring in the existing decor and furniture

The easiest way to ease your search for the ideal shade to consider for the walls is to see the existing colour palette in the room, including furniture, decor, wall art and accessories. Even if you just moved in or empty the room before you begin painting, keeping some of the furniture and decor in the room will ensure that the shade works well with other colours in the room.

Forgetting the ceiling

Ceilings are a large expanse of space, yet most often they are overlooked when developing a room’s colour palette. To create maximum impact for the ceiling, choose a light shade that complements the wall, a glossy white or a bold hue that acts as the main source of colour.
