Watch Out for these Paint Color Mistakes

Watch Out for these Paint Color Mistakes

Painting a house can add a touch of life and color, but you’d be surprised how bad your home can look if you don’t paint it right! Here are a few paint color mistakes to avoid:

  • Going overboard with colors — Yes, there is such a thing as “too much” of a good thing. You may love a certain color, but can you really paint your entire house with it? The answer is no! You have to balance bright and bold colors with neutrals, or else your house will look like a playground!
  • Painting the ceiling white –– The ceiling may look a flat white, but there is a lot more grey in the paint than you might think. You want to choose a shade of cream instead of using dead white, or else it will make the room look odd.
  • Thinking this is the color forever –– Just because you’re painting the house now, that doesn’t mean you have to stick with that color forever. You can always go back and re-paint later. Your style will evolve over time.
  • Get the right finish –– With the right finish, you can make your home’s paint job pop! Dark colors with an eggshell finish can look flat, so go for a high-luster finish. Brighter colors can use the soft eggshell finish.
  • Changing the color schemes –– Yes, each room is a different setting, but do you really want to wander through a jungle of blues, greens, browns, reds, yellows, and greys in every room? Stick with the same color schemes, and add a touch of variety if you must. Make sure the colors of the rooms feel “connected”, and it will give your home a cozy, comfortable atmosphere!
