Choosing the Right Paint Color

Choosing the Right Paint Color 

 

The Cost of renovating a home can be overwhelming, but the look and feel of your home can dramatically change by painting. Pick the right colors and you can enhance features and hide flaws.  

 

Studies have indicated that color can influence up to anywhere from 60-85% of a customers purchasing decision, so, clearly, picking the right color matters, but what do colors evoke. According to the web site 2knowmyself.com, here’s the answer: 

 

  • Black: According to Color psychology, black reflects authority and power but it could also represent an evil notion for some people. 

 

  • Red: Red is a captivating color that reflects energy, power and strength. 

 

  • Blue: Staying in a blue room can make you feel calmer and more relaxed, however, blue could also be depressing, if it was over used. 

 

  • White: White reflects innocence and purity. It's the color used for the dresses of brides to give the impression of purity. 

 

  • Green: Green can make you more relaxed and can help make vision more clear. 

 

  • Yellow: Yellow is an irritating color. Yellow can catch attention, increase the heart rates and enhance metabolism. 

 

  • Purple: Purple combines both the power of red and the calmness tranquil effect of blue. Purple clothes could reflect elegance, wealth and authority. 

  

  • Pink: Pink reflects innocence and kindness. When you want to ask for help head for someone who is wearing pink or white. 

 

 

In addition to what the color means other factors, such as lighting and purpose should be considered. Let’s say, for example, you want a room to “feel” larger. You might want to consider white, cream, or other cool colors for the walls and the trim. If you use the same color for things like a radiator or a conduit, it will help make them “disappear” into the wall. Be sure to test your colors by applying some to the wall and looking at in as many different lighting settings as possible.
