Common Mistakes You Can Make When Choosing Paint Colours

Are you struggling with finding the right hue? You’re not alone!

Picking paint colours is not as trivial as you might think. There are many things to consider, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you may end up with regrets. Here are some common mistakes people make when choosing paint colours.

Mistake #1: Making your colour choice by only looking at the paint chip

At times, using a small chip of paint can be misleading. It’s better to try and select the colour from a larger sample area. Click here to watch a short video to learn how our friends at Sherwin Williams can help.

Mistake #2: Not considering the lighting in the room.

Lighting can be a factor in how a colour looks. Make sure you consider how a colour would look like under many different illumination scenarios. Without considering the light in the room, you might end up with something that’s way too bright or overly dark for you. Colours will always look different depending on the time of day. In a smaller space, it’s always best to stick with lighter and brighter colours so the room doesn’t appear small.

Mistake #3: Not having a clear concept in mind.

Before you pick a colour, it is important to understand that everything in your space should work in synergy. Create your plan based on your furniture and decor. Consider working with a professional colour consultant to help you ensure you’re picking the right colours.
