We’re not rushing summer (honest!), but before you know it we’ll be chugging full steam into colder weather and, of course, the holiday season. Because that’s such a busy time of year for all of us, why not pick away at the things you can do now that will lower your stress later?
As an example, how about making sure that your guest room is stylish, fresh, and ready for relatives and friends? To help with the process, we’ve put together a few tips for picking the perfect interior paint color to match your space and goals.
Ready for the Interior Painting Questionnaire?
1. HOW BIG IS YOUR ROOM?
The size of the space can help you determine whether a lighter or darker color will be better, thus narrowing down your selection a bit. Remember, darker colors will close things in while lighter colors are better for creating a feeling of space.
2. DO YOU HAVE A SOURCE OF NATURAL LIGHT?
This will also help determine the specific shade you choose. That warm, beautiful glow pouring in through your window will make darker shades more usable in smaller spaces, and make cooler colors (like blue and grey) feel warmer.
3. DO YOU HAVE COLORFUL DECORATIONS?
If so, a more neutral wall color that plays well with your accents is a good idea. Picking a vibrant look for your wall then adding bright decorations can be a little visually overwhelming.
4. HAVE YOU LOOKED AT WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING?
Don’t forget the power of the internet! There are countless resources out there just waiting to offer you ideas and inspiration. To get you started, take a look here: guest room paint color ideas.
