Whether you’re painting your home to prepare it for sale, or simply to make it more attractive for your own enjoyment, choosing the right color is important. A color isn’t just a matter of taste, it’s also, to a large extent, about evoking certain positive emotions.
If you’re painting your foyer, for example, you may want it to seem bright and welcoming. So, lighter warmer tones might be appropriate as those colors are often interpreted as friendly.
In your living room, you may want to create an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. In that case, consider shades of greens or grays as those colors communicate peacefulness and calm.
Want the rec room to look vibrant and energetic? Purples and reds communicate those emotions.
Where do you find more information about color psychology? There are plenty of charts available online. Just Google “color psychology charts”. They can help you select just the right color to convey the feeling you want for a room.
Of course, if all else fails, you can’t go wrong with soft beiges, especially when selling your home. Neutral colors are often interpreted as reliable.
