Choosing a suitable paint colors for your apartment walls is an important part of decorating your house. Wall paint may be either the right final touch your walls need, or the flaw that will bring your apartment decor down. Thus, you need to learn how to choose the right colors for your apartment walls. We shall show you here a few tips that will help you choose a right paint color for your walls.
1- Choose light and bright colors to make your room seem more open. Light and bright colors reflect sunlight and make your room seem spacious. Choose soft accents of the same color of your furniture.
2- Choose the right type of paint. Some paints attract looks to your walls. Such paints will emphasize flaws so avoid them. Choose matt paints because they hide flaws.
3- Consult a paint store for a suitable color of paint. You can take photos of your furniture pieces with a camera or even with your mobile phone camera and show them to a paint store. They might help you with choosing the right color. There are even websites that will help you with coordinating colors.
4- Know the difference between water-based and oil-based paints. Water-based paints are stable, quick to dry and easy to clean, while oil-based paints give you a smooth durable finish and a lovely shine.
5- Consider the lighting of the room, and whether the room gets a lot of sunlight or not. Paint colors look different in the can from what they looks like on the walls, and they look different in artificial lights from what they look like in sunlight. It may be a good idea to get a small can as a sample and experiment to see how the color will look.
These tips will make painting your walls much easier. Choose colors that you like and match them to the colors of your furniture and paint away.
