How to Choose Paint Colors for Your Home

Written by Abbey Shafer

Selecting the perfect shade of paint can be a difficult decision. Whether you’re re-painting your whole home, or updating a room these helpful tips will making choosing a color a breeze.

#1 UTILIZE THE COLOR WHEEL

Using the color wheel to help find complimentary shades is easy, and helpful!  This will help you decide how saturated of a color you’re looking for, & what hue you like!

Consider complimentary colors (those opposite on the color wheel)

#2 TAKE HINTS FROM YOUR CLOSET

Lost on where to start? Take a peak inside your wardrobe, as you often buy clothing in colors you enjoy!

#3 USE THE 60/30/10 RULE

60% of your color will come from your walls

30% of your color will come from your furniture/fabrications

10% of your color will come from decorative accents

#4 CREATE A MOOD BOARD

Consistency is key, and often times creating a mood board you’ll find you are drawn to a specific color. This is easy to do on Pinterest!

& don’t forget, once  you’ve decided on that perfect shade, MoveEasy can help you find the perfect painter to complete the project!
