What to Consider When Changing Your Interior Paint Colors?

When it comes to a home there are a lot of different factors that make it “yours”. You have the design, décor, but also the color of paint. Your home design can reflect your personality and who you are. What you like and trends that are “in” at the time are always going to change. Don’t be afraid to try new looks and designs in your home. With warmer weather about us, it’s about time to change up the look of your home. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders when it comes to making your home feel like new again. There are a couple of factors to consider though that My Paint has learned over the years.

What Color Should You Pick?

One of the biggest challenges is figuring out what color to paint your home. Going to a paint store and picking out paint swatches can seem to never really feel fulfilling. When you hold the chips of paints up to your already painted wall can skew how it will really look in that room. There is more to consider than just what you like. Color has everything to do with what we feel and how we think. Therefore, you want to choose a color that is calming or uplifting depending on what you want the energy of the room to be. Doing research on how each color will affect you and your family is adventurous since it the place where they will spend most of their life.

What Type of Paint Should You Pick?

There are many different types of paints out there with different sheens and that can make it difficult. The most important factor to consider is the VOCs in the paint you choose. This can have harmful effects, especially to those who have asthma. You will also want to take note of how it is to clean if you have little ones. Little ones love to play and put their sticky little fingers everywhere. On top of that they can’t resist anytime they see a crayon, marker, or pen. Taking everyone into consideration when choosing your paint will help it to last longer.
