Homeowners say that choosing a color for one room can be somewhat intimidating, but what happens when you have to choose a whole house paint palette? Considering all the different types of rooms you have will help you develop the right color palette for your entire home.
Of course, a professional painter will have advice on color choices, but it’s ultimately up to you to choose the right colors. Here are some easy steps to follow prior to choosing the colors for your whole house paint palette.
First, you should walk through the house and identify the spaces you can see from each room. Take special note of any adjoining rooms, look down the hallways and walk through the kitchen and living room. You may want to start with the room that’s most centrally located, like the living room or kitchen, and then work your way around the rest of the house.
When you have a certain hue in mind for the main room in your home, it will make it easier to choose all the whole house paint palette. Start painting samples of that main color on the wall so you can see what it looks like in the light and dark. From that point, you can choose a complimentary or contrasting color for the next room. Bold colors can provide excellent contrast and soft, neutral colors will be more complimentary.
For the next room, you can continue to build your whole house paint palette with shades of the same hue or contrast color. Don’t forget that you can also make the room pop by painting the trim a bold color. In an open floor plan, most of the rooms in the house are visible at once, so picking colors that work together is more important. Perhaps using shades or tints of the same color can work well in this type of space.
