One of the most challenging decisions concerning décor refers to the selection of paint colors. The color of your walls can either be a focal point of a room or an understatement and shading and lighting can instantly transform the hue of your paint color, for better or for worse.

Before settling on a paint color for your residence or room, there are a few important guidelines to observe and of course, a myriad of other considerations.

The Challenges of Selecting Paint Colors

Finding a color that you will enjoy for years can be a confounding endeavor.

Colors appear different in cans of paint or on paint swatches, than they do on the walls of your residence. You may think that you found the perfect color, only to be disappointed once you apply the paint to your walls.

For example, light colors can display darker on surfaces and bright colors can appear darker and more intense on large surfaces. Once painted, certain colors can turn flat, while others can convey movement.

Certain colors are also more difficult to assess than others. Once, when choosing a yellow paint color for a bedroom, the Founder of C Color had the room painted three different times.

On the first occasion, the yellow paint appeared as an ashy yellow color and on the second occasion, the yellow paint glowed green from the room, similar to a neon bulb or a “Ghostbusters” scene.

On the third and final occasion, that the yellow paint was applied to the wall, white paint was added to the yellow color to dilute the hue. For all intents and purposes, the color was made custom and virtually impossible to replicate at a future date.

When selecting paint colors, be aware that superior paint appears differently in different areas of the residence, even though, the paint color is identical. Shading and lighting affect color as well, making the paint color selection process even more problematic.

People also confuse the temperatures of colors. Designers, interior decorators, artists, accessory stylists and most other industry professionals, categorize blues, greens and purples, as cool colors and reds, yellows and oranges, as warm colors and nothing could be further from the truth. All of the colors mentioned can be both cool or warm, as there are 16.7 million identified colors in the world.
