Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing The Perfect Wall Paint Colour


In case you’re planning to paint your home interiors soon and therefore want to pick a colour palette that will keep you satisfied for years – the process will truly turn out to be one of the most difficult decisions you’ll ever make. There are a mind-boggling list of colour choices that can genuinely make your shopping experience a nightmare if you don’t learn the basics. 

Learning from other people’s mistakes is the only way you can ensure that you’re making the correct decision. That’s why we have coagulated a list of some of the most popular mistakes that people tend to make when choosing the ideal wall colour. 

Avoid These Mistakes When Deciding The Ideal Wall Paint Colour

  • Not Utilising Colour Samples

Before you decide to purchase paints online, you should first check the colour or paint samples you have at your disposal. Paints look differently at different times of the day and that’s all because of the differences in lighting conditions. Therefore, we suggest trying colour samples and cross-examine them in the morning, afternoon and evening (including in artificial lighting).

When you’ll obtain a good idea about how the colour looks throughout the day, it will become easier for you to select the colour that suits your requirements. 

  • Forgetting The Bigger Picture

When you decide to choose the colour shades for multiple rooms inside your home interiors, you need to ensure that all of the room colours work coherently together. So, it’s vital to pick colours that are close to each other in the colour spectrum. Otherwise, the overall look of your home interiors will feel disjointed. 

  • Trying To Choose Too Many Colours In A Single Room

The general rule of thumb is that – if you choose brighter colours on your walls, then the rest of your room decor should be neutral in colour shade. Similarly, if the decor of your room has bright colours,  then the wall must have neutral colours to balance the colour palette. 

So, ensure that you don’t go with only bright colours or neutral colours inside a single room. Try to create a contrasting character inside your room using your wall colour & your decor colour. 

  • Forgetting About The Ceiling

When you choose the colour shade for your walls, you also need to keep in mind the colour choices for the ceilings. Ceilings are often overlooked when trying to develop a room’s colour palette. If you want to create the maximum amount of impact with your room ceilings, we suggest painting the ceilings white, so that your wall colours look the brightest. 

And that brings us to the end of our blog report. We hope our list of mistakes will truly turn out to be helpful in selecting the ideal colour choice.
