1. Pay Attention to Lighting

When choosing a paint color for your home or business interior, it is essential to pay attention to the lighting within each room. Strong, bright paint colors may be too overpowering for rooms with large windows and a ton of natural daylight, but might be perfect for rooms with indirect or incandescent lighting.

2. Test Your Color Choice

After picking a few colors you like, acquire some sample-sized testers to paint on boards or sections of your walls. This will help you envision what the final product is going to look like. If you are planning on using multiple paint colors throughout one room, be sure to test each where the color will likely be used.

3. Follow the Color Wheel

When using a variety of paint colors within a room, it is a good idea to reference a color wheel. Referencing a color wheel can help you choose colors that complement each other or that make other colors pop.

4. Consider How the Paint Color(s) will Flow from Room to Room

When painting one or more rooms within your home or business, it’s important to also consider the flow of color from one room to the next. If you’re wanting to achieve cohesion, use the same paint color(s) throughout each room.
