You may notice that what you thought was one shade of blue looks lighter or darker and it all depends on how the lighting will affect paint colours.
Choosing Paint Colors for Interior Painting
Painting a new colour can compliment any room by working with the existing space and its features. The colours, the finish or sheen , shade and tone of the chosen paint colour will create an atmosphere in the room. Your decision on what decor to choose is part of the entire home painting project. Things to take into consideration can be the size, shape, contents and function of the the room that will be painted. The living room and dining room for example are two main rooms that are well used daily and are usually set up as an open concept area like the kitchen.
A lighter colour can give the feeling of more space, a darker colour can make it cozy, a neutral colour will make all things warm and cozier. Sometimes it’s not easy to choose a dark colour to paint the entire room, so it just may make enough of a change to paint an accent/focal wall.
