Changing the paint colour of a room can be an instant breath of fresh style. It can also be a huge, moderately expensive, enormously time consuming mistake if you choose an unflattering paint colour! That’s why it’s important to choose the right bedroom paint colour the first time, to save yourself the time money and effort. Follow these easy steps to choose a bedroom paint colour.
Visualize, visualize, visualize! The biggest focus on choosing a bedroom paint colour should be on imagining what the colour will look like when it’s covering all of your walls.
One easy way to make choosing bedroom paint colour a synch is to purchase a small paint sample. Any home improvement store will gladly sell you a £2-4 paint sample so that you can try the hue on your own walls. A paint colour sample allows you to see what the colour would look like in the specific lighting and shape of your bedroom. The value of a small bedroom paint sample should never be underestimated!
Paint swatches can also be a big help in choosing a colour for your walls. It’s also less work when you go to paint over all of the options you’ve considered!
Whether you choose bedroom paint colour swatches or actually paint your walls or look for paint for radiator colours, don’t make any big decisions right away. Paint a sample colour or tape a swatch to the wall, and just leave it there for at least 3 days. Notice the way the bedroom paint colour changes during different times of the day; the different lighting can make a big different in the perceived colour of paint. Plus, it’s a good idea to make sure that any potential bedroom paint colour was not just a wild idea you had one day that doesn’t seem so appealing the next.
When choosing a bedroom paint colour candidate, there are many things to consider. The natural light that reaches the room is a very important factor. If you have a bedroom that doesn’t receive a lot of sunlight, you probably don’t want to choose a dark paint colour. If you get a lot of sun in the room, you have more room to choose a dark hue.
Bedroom furniture also makes a different in the bedroom paint colour options. Make sure that the bedroom paint samples you choose match your current furniture, or that the paint colour you choose matches the shade of wood or furniture material you’re considering buying.
