Changing the paint color of your walls or choosing paint colors for a newly constructed home is a great way to express your personal taste and style. It also offers you the opportunity to transform drab & dreary into warm, cozy, inviting, fun, welcoming and/or relaxing depending on the color scheme you choose. Paint colors evoke emotions. This is an important factor to consider when choosing your paint colors for different rooms. Here are some tips to get you started:
Blue, which is part of the cool color palette, makes us feel calm and tranquil, so it is ideal for use in bedrooms. But since blue works as an appetite suppressant (perhaps because there are so few blue foods) it is not the best option for a dining room.
Red packs a wallop (physiologically speaking) and increasing blood pressure, heartbeat and energy in most people. It instills feelings of intimacy, passion and sexuality. Red also increases the appetite, which explains why it is used so often in restaurants and why it can be a good choice for a formal dining room.
Orange, like red, tends to warm a room, but in a more friendly and welcoming way. As a result, paints that come in various shades and tints of orange work well in living rooms and family rooms.
Yellow is also warm and welcoming, but it is more attention-getting than either red or orange. For this reason, it is a good paint color to use in poorly-lit foyers and dark hallways. It’s also a great color for warm, country style kitchens.
Green is another relaxing color and is much more versatile than blue. Light greens are ideal for bedrooms and living rooms; mid-tones are good for kitchens and dining rooms.
Violet is a great color when used correctly. It can work in many rooms, including dining rooms, bedrooms and libraries, as long as you choose the right shade. It also makes a great accent color to any room where you want to add a punch of color! Young children respond favorably to violet so this color can be used successfully in children’s bedrooms and play areas.
