Mood-Boosting Paint Colour Tips to Spruce Up Your Home

Choosing the paint colour for your walls is one of the major decisions you have to make when building or refurbishing your home. While some already have certain colours in their mind, others are more thorough and careful when it comes to choosing the right colour.

Several scientific studies have proven that colours have a huge impact on our mood and overall health. This is the reason why choosing a wall paint colour should be carefully decided.

When choosing the right wall paint colour, a variety of factors have to be considered. This includes the existing furniture and decorations in your home and the kind of light that gets inside. And the most important factor – the combination of colours and decors should reflect your personality.

If you are having a hard time choosing the right paint colour for your walls, here are some tips to help you out.

Check your wardrobe

One of the tips we got from experts is to take out your favourite outfits – the ones that you love wearing the most. Choose one or two shades from your favourite outfits and use a colour chart to build a colour scheme by matching your outfit’s colours with the paint shades.

Choose inspirational paint colours

Another valuable tip is to choose colours that tell a story. Just like how colours are used to set the mood in a movie, different paint colours can also trigger different types of emotions. Always choose a colour that could make you feel inspired and relaxed.

Use a little experiential psychology

Some colours can remind you of things from the past and you can utilize them when choosing a paint colour for your walls. By choosing colours that could remind you of the happiest moments of your life, you can have those happy feelings recreated in your home.

Use colours to zone your room creatively

You can also utilize point colours to create zones or separate the areas in your room. You can use a certain colour to define the corner that you will be using as a study area and another colour for your relaxation spot. You can use colours creatively to make your room bigger, fresher, and more relaxing.

How colours look equates to how they feel

Nobody wants a rough surface under their toes or fingers. The same principle applies to paint colours. To create an ideal and relaxing space inside your room, you should choose paints with visual softness. These types of paints will make an ideal background and could go along with various types of decorations.
