Choosing the correct and most apt color for the walls of your room and the house is very critical. It can set a mood, define a look, and also influence the perception of space.
But the perception of color differs from person to person. Some people do well with dark spaces and feel this is their cocoon, others need light and airy. When it comes to choosing paint, remember there is no right or wrong choice. Paint is personal, and it’s about what feels right to you for your own home.
However, one should take cues from the size and openness of the house, and choose the wall colors accordingly.
- Examine the space: With the correct shade of colour you may create the illusion of a bigger space in case your house is a small one.
- Think about the tone and finish of the colour: With a high sheen level, such as a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish, the color will appear slightly lighter thanks to light reflecting from the surface, but it will also highlight any imperfections in your walls. On the other hand, a matte finish will diffuse light, resulting in the color appearing slightly darker. It’s also much more forgiving since it’s less reflective so it won’t draw attention to less-than-perfect walls.
With these minor details, you may be able to create the ultimate look of your house.
