Part 1. Getting Started
Size up your room – Consider its shape and dimensions. A lighter color can make a small room feel more spacious, while a darker color can help an immense room seem cozier.
Take architectural details into account – Think moulding, trim, columns, and brackets. What’s attractive and what’s not? Varied intensities and hues can complement architecture, furnishings, and art. Remember, paint can accentuate a room’s features or hide them.
Factor in function – Will the main purpose of the room be eating, sleeping, working, entertaining, or something else entirely? A warm hue in the living room or family room creates a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere for guests than a cooler color.
