Changing the color of your home’s interiors not only adds a different perspective but can also enhance its aesthetic beauty. However, knowing which colors will compliment your home’s furnishings can be a genuine challenge. 

At ViVi Upholstery, we understand your struggle and know that some colours look great on the paint chip at the store but may not translate easily into your home. To help you make the best choice, we have listed five tips for picking the right wall color. With these tips, you will be able to find the colour that enhances not only the beauty of your home but creates an ambiance you can enjoy every day. 

Tip #1: Begin with a small area.

Start small with color in areas like a powder room or bathroom, or just an accent wall. It will allow you to experiment and correct any errors easily without much expenditure.

Tip #2: How do you want to feel in that room.

In the bedroom do you want the feeling of relaxation, drama, or intimacy? Soft, cool colors and neutrals usually create a quieter feeling while stronger colors result in a dramatic effect.

Tip #3: Lighting is very important.

Natural daylight shows the truest color of a room. Incandescent lighting brings out warm tones and yellows, while fluorescent lighting casts a sharp blue tone.

Tip #4: Learn the color terms.

Hues are what we call colors. For example, red is a hue and blue is a hue. The value of the hue lets you know how light or dark it is. Saturation refers to how dominant the hue is. As we go from red to pink, the red hue becomes less dominant. Intensity is the brilliance of the color. The pure colors such as red are more intense than the combined colors such as yellow-green. A stronger intense color usually has a more dominant hue. 

Tip #5: Test your color choice.

Boost your confidence by testing colors on a poster board or large areas of a wall. It will allow you to visualize better before making a color choice.
