Redecorating your home can be one of the most exciting things to do after years of living with the same walls and decor, but finding the right color can be difficult. It can be tempting to walk into the home store and let the clerk use the paint filling machine to fill your bucket with the most popular color that week. This can, however, make you feel like your lacking that special touch that makes your home your own. So take the time to really consider your home and your personality to find the perfect color that adds pizzazz to your space.

Questions to Ask Yourself

The most important element of decorating your house is your own happiness. You don’t want to live in a house you don’t think is gorgeous. For this reason, it is important to take time to think about your own preferences before picking a color to paint your walls. Consider which colors you often fall in love with on first sight: blues, greens, reds, purples, any color you like! If you are having trouble identifying what colors you gravitate toward, take a look in your closet. Odds are, your clothes will all settle in one color palette that you feel most comfortable in.

Questions to Ask Your House

Okay, you don’t really have to talk to your house, but you do have to consider its structure to pick the right color. Think about the artwork you have and would like to keep, what colors would complement them? You can also start to notice which rooms in your home gather the most light during the day. Choosing lighter colors can help these rooms feel larger when the sun fills the room. You can also consider if you want the walls to support the furniture colors or vice versa.
