It’s been quite the winter this year, and we’re still waiting for spring to arrive. So it’s no wonder spring fever is at an all-time high. And when you get spring fever, we know you’re thinking of the many ways to update your home – living, dining and bedrooms included.
If you’re not looking to spend too much money, the most cost effective way to drastically change your home is by painting it! While paint is easily changed, you’ll want to pick the right color the first time around. That’s why we’re sharing three steps in choosing the perfect color, courtesy of Benjamin Moore.
Inspiration – First, you’ll want to collect and compile inspiration for your new color. What kinds of colors do you gravitate towards? Is there a picture or accessory that you would like to use as an accent color? Are you going for a bold or muted color? All of these are questions you’ll want to answer when putting together your inspiration portfolio.
Set the Mood – Next, you’ll want to choose a mood. Are you looking for a peaceful mood for your bedroom, or a warm, welcoming feel for your living or family room? Or maybe you want some bold colors in your kitchen. Whichever you decide, the mood you want to convey will be a major deciding factor in the color palette you go with.
Coordinate with your home accessories – While paint is relatively inexpensive to change, replacing your home’s furnishing, carpet and floors is not. Take note of the larger pieces you have to work with, and choose a color to complement. Take into account your floor finishing, cabinets, and your furniture. And remember, not everything has to be perfectly matched; complimenting colors and accessories make a huge impact on the feeling of a space.
