If you’ve ever had a painter paint your home’s interior or exterior, or if you’ve done the job yourself, you know the task of choosing the right paint colors and how difficult it can sometimes be. There are many ways we try on our own to choose the right paint colors. Maybe you’ve painted small tester squares on the wall, or brought home paint color cards and held them up. Or worse, maybe you’ve painted one or more walls only to realize the paint color you selected is not quite right. So, how do you choose the right paint colors, whether for your interior or your exterior?
At Flying Colors Painting, we work with an incredibly talented interior designer and color consultant named Diane Peck. Diane is involved in choosing the right paint colors for many of our painting projects. She offers quality insight to help you make paint color choices that you’ll love for years to come. Not every painting company in Tacoma or Olympia utilizes the expertise of a color consultant to help homeowners choose the right paint colors. Doing so eliminates costly paint color choice mistakes. Have you ever loved the perfect pink color paint, only to have it up on your walls looking like Pepto Bismol ©? An interior designer, decorator, and paint color consultant can help you make the right choices the first time around. Here are some upsides of utilizing a color consultant for your painting projects.
Choosing paint colors and color palettes without the help of a professional can end up costing you time and money in the long run. There are so many choices of paint colors in different hues, tints, and shades. Therefore, it can be overwhelming when you need to choose only a few paint colors for your home’s interior or exterior. Consulting with a professional can narrow down your choices and eliminate the speculative costs more efficiently.
After just one meeting with a color consultant, they can help you choose the right paint colors with less time and money spent. Our color consultant, Diane, can also help you design the entirety of your room around the right colors, eliminating the risk of purchasing the wrong color furniture or accessories.
Not everyone painting their home is concerned with following the newest trends in color and interior decorating. However, a color consultant’s input and knowledge of popular trends can add value to your home. Utilizing a current color scheme in a well-designed home can have a positive impact on your home’s resale price. This is a great option if you’re looking to sell your home. A consultant will know the top trends of the year and can make your home more attractive to potential buyers.
When designing how you want your home to look, there can often be disagreements between you and your spouse, or others living in your home. A color consultant can offer a neutral viewpoint. Color consultants are skilled at incorporating different ideas and combining them into something that works for everyone. They can be an important voice in the discussion of how your home may look after combining the existing furnishings with the new paint color choices.
Even if you have done a large amount of planning and designing on your own for your painting project, a color consultant might be what you need to finalize your ideas. Sometimes making that final decision on your home’s new color palette can be difficult to do. A color consultant can come in and look at the design you’ve put together. He or she can help you adjust and finalize your choices. It can make the weight of the decision much lighter and easier to finally move forward with.
