081308_painttips01

The number of people planning to take on home improvement and decorating projects this year has increased by more than 12 percent from this time last year.

More people are fixing up their homes with the intent to live in them longer than ever before. For most homeowners, they are simply starting with the color of paint on their walls.

Paint has the power to transform a room.

Understanding the power of color flow allows homeowners to create both a beautiful and harmonious living atmosphere. The colors that you choose to put on your walls affect your mood and perception, so choosing the right color for the right room is essential.

Bedroom-
For bedrooms, it is best to stay away from high-energy colors like deep red or bright green. Bedrooms are a place for relaxation so more calming colors like blue and grey are often more suitable.

We suggest “Kyrpton” from Sherwin-Williams.

Kitchen-
Yellow is a great color for kitchens because it is friendly and welcoming, yet not too loud or disturbing. Yellow is also known to complement most times of kitchen cabinetries.

Red is frequently used in kitchens because that is a color known to cause hunger. So if you’re going on a diet, we wouldn’t recommend painting your kitchen or dining room any shade of red.

We suggest “Canary Song” from Glidden Paint.

Bathroom-
Neutral colors that reflect well on skin tones are great for bathrooms. It’s also important to choose colors that give off a clean and refreshing feeling.

We suggest “Manchester Tan” from Benjamin Moore.

Home Office-
If you google “the most productive color” the results will show that blue is the answer. Blue is a color that is known to stimulate the mind and increase focus, which makes it a great color for painting a home office.

We suggest “Sea Rover” from Behr.

Living Room-
Using dark tones in a living room can create a warm and cozy feel. Stay away from over stimulating colors like red or bright yellow, because a living room is meant to be a place of relaxation.

We suggest “Sea Wave” from Valspar.

Remember, the paint on your walls sets the tone for the room. What tone are you trying to set?
