Take a look when the sun and daylight is beaming through the windows. This will give you a different look to the paint colour when you look at it again in the evening with just the interior lights on.
Lighting changes the shade and tone but not the colour. With low lighting paint colours may look darker while in bright sunlight or daylight they will not look as dark as you were hoping.

How to Choose An Interior House Painting Contractor in Ottawa
An Interior House Painter in Ottawa should have the experience, the knowledge as well as the confidence to help guide you and offer you advice and tips.
A Painter can offer tips such as:
Find the purpose to the room or rooms that will be painted. The size, the shape, the contents and the function are key elements to choosing the paint colours.
Want to create a cozy and relaxing living room or dining room? Create the atmosphere by choosing a paint colour that will compliment the function of that room. There is a paint colour for every room that helps create that perfect home ambience.
For example you would not want a bright red paint colour in the bedroom but paint a kitchen wall or a focal wall in the family room and compliment it with a shade of gray and you’ve got the look that’s modern chic, trendy and adds that comfy cozy feel. Earth tone paint colours are also always neutral as well as balancing for either of these rooms.
If painting a bedroom, then you might consider a light blue, light gray or even a green paint colour. Accentuate it with painting the ceiling in a darker shade to add depth and character to the room.
Paint an accent wall in any room of your house, and then paint the remaining walls in one to two shades lighter than the dark colour of the focal wall.
Get creative. Don’t hesitate to experiment with your interior painting ideas. Unique, custom paint jobs are quite popular and can really make a room outstanding. Here are a couple of other creative ideas you may want to reflect on when considering your next interior house painting project:
Accent Walls: they can actually compliment your other three walls by covering a fourth wall with a bolder, contrasting shade.
Paint the 5th wall in the room: Yes the Ceiling is also considered a wall. It doesn’t always have to be white. Paint a bold dark colour for the ceiling and go a couple of shades lighter on the walls and Voila!! instant drama, instant chic.
Other Surfaces: Why not paint your floors or wood paneling? It’s interesting to turn these overlooked areas into unique central focal points.
