How to Pick The Right Colour for Your Residential or Commercial Painting Project?

If you are getting your home or office painted, then you are probably spending a lot of time fussing over the colours that would be best for different parts of the building. We are Professional Painters in Sydney who can guide you when it comes to choosing the right colour for your painting project. 

The market is full of various types of sheens, latex paints (durable and easy to clean) and oil-based paints (suitable for areas of the house that are bound to go through a lot of hard times).

Determine The Primary Function of the Space

You can choose the colour that is best for your rooms by making sure you know exactly what the ‘function’ of a particular room is. This is important because colours play a very important role in ‘setting the mood’ and are said to have a huge impact on the way that you feel most days.

Each colour out there, affects us in a particular way. Feel free to discuss your colour choices with your Painter. They will be able to help you out as they have experience in this area and can let you know if your colour choices will work in a particular space. 

There are soothing colours that relax you and make your heart rate steadier so that you can feel at peace after a long hard day at work, then there are vibrant colours that energise you and make you want to be more productive. You can also go for elegant colours, used purely to give out an elegant, lush and sophisticated outlook to your rooms. Whether it’s Residential Painting or Commercial Painting, you also need to make sure the colour palette that you choose is cohesive as a whole. After all, if the dining area clashes with the living area, the end result will not look too good. 

Once you know the function of a room, it will be easy to decide what colour would be best for what part of the house. Take for example, the living room. If you are someone who holds a lot of parties at their house and is a fan of lively, talkative sessions in the living room, then red might just be the colour for you. Red increases the heart rate and thus promotes conversation.

You can choose from a range of calm blues and greens for your bedrooms and bathrooms. These colours are soothing and relaxing which is just what those spaces are for. These colours are guaranteed to transform any room into a tranquil living space. These happen to be the well-known tricks of Residential Painting.

Think Long Term

Another important factor to consider is how you will react to the colour after looking at it everyday for several months or years. For instance, bright yellow might be your favourite colour. But painting your bedroom bright yellow might not be a smart decision as the bright colour might be off putting after a while. So, think long and hard about a colour and how you will feel looking at it everyday. Some colours might not be special, but if the space will work better with subtle colours, then that’s what you should go for. After all, you don’t need to make a big statement with each space. Instead, it will be smarter to have a feature wall to make a statement and allow the rest of your house to be more subtle with soothing colours that are timeless and won’t look dated within a year or two.
