Learn to Pick the Right Colors

Pick the right colorsIt really doesn’t matter what kind of home project you’re doing; whether you are updating your kitchen or doing a bathroom makeover, the question still remains: what colors will you use? With so many options and possible color combinations to choose from, it’s difficult to know where to start. You have hundreds of questions and just as many color swabs, but no sign of an answer in sight. Don’t fret. Here are three answers to questions you’ve likely been asking that will make picking the colors for this home remodeling project breeze!

Where Do You Start?

Knowing where to begin your color search can be the most difficult step. Luckily, there’s an easy solution. The best thing to do is use other spaces in your home as inspiration for new projects. Think about your home and your favorite rooms. What colors did you use in them? Not only does this give you a good starting point and offer your contractor a reference, it also ties your home design choices together.

How Many Colors Should You Use?

Some people think one color is enough, while others would have a rainbow painted on their walls if they could. The best answer to this question lies somewhere in the middle. A good guide to use is the “rule of three.” Choosing one neutral color, one rich color, and one accent color is a pretty safe plan.

How Many Times Should You Use Them?

This is almost as important as the previous question. Using one of your colors too much can drown out the rest and create an uneven look. One solution to this is to utilize each color three times. Consider which color would work best on your walls, which color would work best for your tiles, and which color could be used as an accent. Carefully select your decor so one color doesn’t overpower the others.
