Spruce Up the Place with a Fresh Coat of PaintPainting a room in your home is a great way to update and modernize the space. You might feel hesitant about selecting a new paint colour, but with a few easy tips, you can choose your colour with confidence and improve the look and feel of your home.

Before you start shopping, make sure to determine what ambiance you want for the room. Look around and determine what aspects of the décor are your favourites; use accent colours featured in these pieces as a starting point. If you decide you want to paint the walls different colours, make sure to have at least one neutral colour to complement and not overwhelm the space. Bright colours are fun and popular, but try not to overdo it. Neutral doesn’t mean plain white; you can change up the look with greys, beiges, and creams.

You might also consider adding a pattern or design on your walls. These can improve the appearance of less functional rooms; for example, vertical stripes draw the eye upwards and make a small room look bigger.

Some colours have cooler undertones, which are calming, while others have warm undertones, which bring energy to a room. If you combine cool colours with warm colours, you can produce a unique feel. As you go between rooms, the paint colours should complement one another.
