The Best Way to Pick the Right Paint Color

Choosing the right paint color

I’ve been involved with the color selection process for hundreds of houses. When having your house painted choosing the right color or colors is by far the most difficult process. If not done right from the beginning it can also get very expensive re-painting rooms. Now, this isn’t always the case, some people don’t have a problem. They have either used the color before or have seen it in another house and they liked it. That’s not the case for the majority of people. In this trade, I’ve witnessed countless people spend hours and days laboring over their color selections. Then when they narrow it down they buy samples and put them up all over the place only to still not like them. Then they go and buy more starting the process all over again.

Let’s face it, trying to choose a color from thousands of tiny little sample chips is a near impossible task! Gray colors (which are crazy popular right now) are among the hardest to pick because they tend to have hidden undertones like purple that don’t show up until the paint is on the wall and dry.

Let Stop The Madness!

The best way to arrive at the perfect color selection is to hire a professional color consultant. A good color consultant can do one of two things for you. You can give them the direction you’re looking to go in and they will guide you to the perfect color. Or, you can tell them to choose colors they think would go best in your house. Most people point them in the direction they’re looking for but it is interesting to see what a color consultant would come up with without any direction. The best part is that in under an hour it will be done and you will have confidence that you will like it once the colors are put up on the walls.

How Much Does it Cost?

Not as much as you may think! If you hire us to paint your house it is free of charge which is hard to beat. If you are outside of our area, doing it yourself, or whatever it’s still not all that expensive. Especially if you factor in your time, all the paint samples, and the cost to re-paint a room if you hate the color. Plus you’ll have peace of mind and that is something you just can’t put a price on.
