Color Selection Tips

Posted on November 13, 2012 at 7:12 PM Comments comments (0)
Choosing paint colors for your  project can be one of the hardest and most stressful decisions of a home improvement project.  Nobody wants to make a mistake that they will have to live with for years or pay for an expensive re-do.  How many times have you chosen a color thinking it would look one way and then when it is up you realize it looks totally different than you expected?  This sometimes causes people to pick "safe colors" (a.k.a. boring) or to stick with the existing color.  With a little bit of time and planning you can be sure to pick colors you will not only be happy with but actually truly love. 
Be Open Minded
You need to be willing to experiment and think outside of the box.  Sometimes color schemes that you would never dream of, actually look fantastic when you see them on a house.  One of the best places to start is by taking a drive around and observing other houses to see what colors appeal to you.  You should be careful however, not to match your color choice to houses that are nearby. 
Narrow it Down
Once you have found the basic idea of what you like, you can visit a local paint store and pick up some color charts.  You can also check online as many websites such as SherwinWilliams.com and BenjaminMoore.com offer color visualizers where you can actually play around with different colors on a house.  Just keep in mind you are looking at a computer screen and the colors may not be exact.  Once you have narrowed down your color choices it is time to test it out.
Sample and Test
Purchase a few samples of the actual paint colors you are considering.  (Trust me it is worth the few bucks.)  You can apply the paint samples directly to an area of the house or you can paint a poster board and tack that up to the house.  It is best to check the color after it has fully dried and at different times of day.  Sometimes a color will be just what you expect or it may "grow on you" as you give it a chance, other times you may know immediately that it is not right for you.
Go For It!
Color selection is very much based on individual tastes and preferences.  Remember one man's "Smurf House" is another man's "Beautiful Blue".  As long as you are comfortable and happy with the color, go for it.  Just make sure to do your homework so the end result is exactly what you expected!
