No doubt there is real power in paint but only when applied perfectly. A fresh layer of paint can transform the boring and unpleasant look of a room right away. Nevertheless, a poor paint choice can make your room feel busy, small, or colorless. And most importantly it can drive away potential customers if you are planning to put your home on sale.

To help you, here I have compiled a list of some common paint mistakes that you must want to avoid next time you are going to paint your home.

Picking colors that precisely match your favorite objects:

If you wish your pet accent piece to look exceptional in a room, pick colors that are identical but softer. For example,rather than selecting the particular green in your favorite bed-sheet, pick a green that’s lighter & more subtle in nature, so the rich green of the bed-sheet pops.

Going with a white or cream color just because it is a safer bet:

Even neutral colors like gray, white, and beige avail in various tones and shades, so employ the sample-size or oversize colors that paint stores provide to aid you make the ideal selection of colors you wish. Pick no more than 3 or 4 colors that attracts you. On every wall, tape up the oversize paint samples and notice your choices all through the day as the light transforms.

Picking colors that are excessively bright:

Colors that are bright and clear are too strong for a majority of interiors. A pretty large, sunny room can manage kelly green or sunshine yellow, but we require colors for our rooms that mix well with the environment we live, harmonize what we like, and camouflage the aspects that are absent. If you have always dreamed a red dinning hall, avoid crayon red to anything more subdued, for example, a raspberry tint or a brick tone.

Choosing colors that aren’t appropriate for the room:

Warm colors are likely to make people feel good & look great. Dusty warm plums, rusty golds and earthy reds work magnificently for dinning halls and powder rooms. Cool shades are likely to make people feel restful. Natural greens, cheerful lavenders and silver blues works best in living rooms and bedrooms. Green walls can make people seem unhealthy in a bathroom, whereas bright-yellow can make people feel nervous in a bedroom. Think cautiously regarding how you wish to feel & what you wish to achieve in different spaces.
