Many factors go into selecting appropriate paint colors. They include room size, lighting, existing furniture or architectural elements, and the client's color preferences. A general rule is that color combinations that appear pleasing are made up of colors that are sympathetic, complimentary or in harmony with each other. Colors that do not appear to be in harmony with each other are considered clashing colors.

Things To Consider:

  • What colors inspire you?
  • What are your color preferences?
  • What is the lighting in your house and the effect it has at different times of the day?
  • Color makes a huge difference in how you enjoy your space. Inspiration can come from nature, travel, the city, magazines, furniture, fabric and your personal history.
  • Be on the lookout for good colors. Collect swatches of fabric or take pictures of colors you like when you see them.

Colors Scheme Tips:

  • Irregularly shaped rooms are better when painted mono-chromatically as they help to conceal wavy lines at the ceiling and wall connections.
  • Respect the style and period of your home.
  • Consider using different colors on the woodwork, walls and ceilings in more traditional, regularly shaped spaces.
  • Traditionally, deeper colors are applied to walls and lighter colors are applied to the ceiling and woodwork.
  • Don't use color gratuitously. Often times, less is more when it comes to color.
  • Check out your paint company's stock paint color chart. These are the most popularly selected colors and a good place to start your color search.

Homeowners can do a lot of groundwork for selecting good colors on their own. Homeowners can view paint companies' color palettes online.

An easy way to find colors is to go to This house painting information site has links to complete color palettes from most known paint manufacturers. Once inside these color sample sites, one may look at and pick colors or one can go to the color visualizer pages and upload a photo of one's house, room, office, etc., color it in and print it out.

Before buying your paint, All Los Angeles Painting Company, Inc. recommends viewing a test sample of the color in the space you will be painting. Draw downs are paint colors painted onto a piece of 8.5 x 11 cardboard. This is a convenient way to view a color without having to paint a color sample or samples directly on a wall. The draw down can be held next to or taped up to any surface.

There is an hourly charge for color consulting.
